Autocad 2014 crashes during inital startup.

Autocad 2014 crashes with a message "Configuration file may be locked by another process or file is set as read only". This occured after deployment to the client workstation. I can't even find the ACAD2014.CFG file in the specified directory. The computer is a 32bit with an Intel I5 processor and 4GB of ram. Is there something I missed in the deployment setups?


Thanks in advance

You probably have UAC set too high or the user does not have local admin rights.  This is easily fixable.


Good Luck!
