AutoCAD LT 2013 stuck at Setup Initialization

I am trying to upgrade about 100 workstations that are all Windows 7 Pro x64 to AutoCAD LT 2013.     Unfortunately, each of them is doing the exact same thing - sitting at 'Setup Initialization' indefinitely - See pic.   I am logging on as the administrator of the domain, I've tried rebooting the workstations, copying the install folder off the network and running it locally, rebooting, nothing seems to work.   I have no idea what to do, the window just sits here with the bar moving left to right and I cannot click anything, move forward, close the window, nothing.   They have AutoCAD LT 2012 already, so I'm fairly sure whatever prerequisites they might need are already present.   I really hope someone can help me out here.

Welcome to the Forums!


If each of them are doing the same thing, it could be a bad installer image.  Alternatively, it could be your anti-virus.  Other users with this problem have had luck installing locally with their anti-virus disabled.  Norton, Trend Micro, and Avast have been major culprits with this lately.
