The error mesaage is attached as a PNG file.
Error 1328. Error applying patch to file
C:\Config.Msi\PT359B.tmp. It has probably been
updated by other means, and can no longer be modified
by this patch. For more information contact your patch vendor.
There is no option to ignore this error and the Update 1 install completely fails.
It looks like the AutoCAD Electrical 2011 Update 1 -- 64 Bit certificate has expired and that is what is preventing the Update 1 from completing.
Attached is a PNG screen picture.
Autodesk please look into this a fix the AutoCAD Electrical 2011 Update 1 -- 64 Bit if required.
It's more likely that your product is already up-to-date. Are you experiencing a particular issue that this patch fixes?
I believe AutoCAD Electrical 2011 Update 1 -- 64 Bit did not install for the following four reasons:
I experienced Error 1328 when trying to install Update 1.
Help--About AutoCAD Electrical
Does not show Update 1

When I try to install Update 2 -- 64 Bit I get an "Installation Error"
"The Service Pack could not be installed because it is designed for
AutoCAD Electrical 2011 - Update 1 (Version 2.1)."
A screen picture PNG file of the Update 2 -- 64 Bit Installation Error is Attached
Please help me install Update 1
Sorry to hear that you have troubles installing SP1 for ACADE 2011.
The error 1328 during a product service pack installation can be safely ignored. We have seen this error with various Autodesk products (e.g. ACAD MEP 2012, ACA 2012) and blogged about it on our Up and Ready blog.
Please make sure you are logged in with your local admin account and have your antivirus disabled, then download ace2011_swl_update1_x64.exe again and during Service Pack installation, please click Retry (you may need to click on it several times) to finish the installation.
I have tried cliccking on "Retry" many times and Update 1 will not complete.
AutoCAD Electrical 2011 Update 1 is using Windows Installer
Windows Installer 5.0.7601.17514 will not allow ignore if the file table attribute is set to 512 (msidbFileAttributesVital)
|msidbFileAttributesVital||0x000200||512||The file is vital for the accurate operation of the component to which it belongs. If the installation of a file with the msidbFileAttributesVital attribute fails, the installation stops and is rolled back. In this case, the Installer displays a dialog box without an Ignore button.|
If this attribute is not set, and the installation of the file fails, the Installer displays a dialog box with an Ignore button. In this case, the user can choose to ignore the failure to install the file and continue.
If the msidbFileAttributesVital bit within the Attributes column is set, and if the component to which the file belongs is selected for installation, then the installer must be able to install this file for the installation to be completed successfully. If the installer is unable to install the file for some reason (for example, if the source file cannot be located within the source image), then an error dialog box will appear with the options "Retry" or "Cancel". For a file that does not have msidbFileAttributesVital set, the options in case of an install error will be "Abort", "Retry", and "Ignore" (that is, the user will have the option to complete the install successfully without installing that file).
I think the ace2011_swl_update1_x64.exe install package has a file with msidbFileAttributesVital that is preventing Update 1 to be installed on my comnputer.
I can't tell what the file is that is causing the problem because the name changes on each install attempt and is is a no descriptive file name like C:\Config.Msi\PT359B.TMP.
Can Autodesk help me isolate the file in the install package that is causing the install failure?
I just tested this out as follows:
1.installed ACADE 2011 on a clean W7x64 system without SP1
2.downlaoded and installed SP1 (ace2011_swl_update1_x64.exe) successfully on it
Thus the issue is not with SP1 installer file, can you try reinstalling ACADE 2011 and include SP1 during the product installation?
When you say SP1 do you mean AutoCAD Electrical 2011 Update 1?
There is no Service Pack for AutoCAD Electrical 2011, there are Update 1 and Update 2.
I am running Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit, Service Pack 1.
When I installed AutoCAD Electrical 2011 about one week ago my computer was only about two weeks old.
Is there a documented procedure for totally removing AutoCAD Electrical 2011? Including how to transfer the licence.
I have performed the "Repair" AutoCAD Electical 2011 with Control Panel--Uninstall a Program--Uninstall/Change
Uninstalling and installing will take a few hours and I don't have the time to do it right now. I will wait a bit before attempting your idea.
Yes, you are correct; there is no Service Pack 1 for ACAD Electrical 2011, but Update 1 and to avoid possible misunderstanding I indicated the file name, ace2011_swl_update1_x64.exe, in my previous post.
I’m sorry for any confusion this may have caused you though.
Usually, ACADE 2011 uninstallation from Widows Control Panel > Programs and Features does good job, but you can also check following ACADE 2011 content on your files system and the system registry.
After ACADE 2011 uninstallation if you find following folders on your file system, please rename them and once you verify that you have successfully reinstalled the product then you can delete them.
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Acade 2011
C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\AutoCAD Electrical 2011
These are ACAD E 2011 folders related to your Windows user profile, you can also rename them.
In your system registry you can search for following keys that relate to ACADE 2011 install.
If you find keys below, please export them as .reg files first (for back up purposes) and then delete them in your system registry.
Warning! Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft provides a wealth of critical information that you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base at http://support.microsoft.com.
Use the Microsoft® Registry Editor only at your own risk and only after backing up the registry as well as the system.dat and user.dat files as outlined for your operating system in the Microsoft Knowledge Base and in the related solution, TS66513. Additional information about the registry is also contained in the Help topics in the Microsoft Registry Editor.
Please note that you do not need to transfer you license as you will be installing ACADE 2011 on the same system it was activated on earlier. However, should you need to transfer your license to another system, you can use License Transfer Utility before uninstalling ACADE 2011 from your system.
More about transferring standalone license you can read on ACADE WikiHelp site, the link is below.
