AutoCAD LT 2014 free trial crashes at startup

686 Views, 7 Replies

I intend to buy AutoCAD LT 2014 for my business and thought I'd check out the free trial to make sure it has everything I need. I have installed it on my computer and when I open it, it crashes and shuts down as soon as the first working screen appears.

Please help!!

Ok. I've been able to get it working but not the way you suggested. What happens is as it's opening a box appears where you can select to buy the software, enter a serial number or continue the trial. If you don't have lightening fast reflexes and click on 'continue trial' the whole thing shuts down and disappears. So now I know to keep my wits about me and watch for that box to click on, I click continue trial and I'm in. Probably should be fixed though. Thanks for your help anyway.

Windows version?
Is there an error message?

You're going to hate my idea...

 

Autodesk recommended uninstall/reinstall procedures are as follows
Uninstall: http://usa.autodesk.com/getdoc/id=TS45252

Ensure the user installing/uninstalling and using the product have enough rights to do so (install and reinstall as local administrator):
Unable to run AutoCAD® as a restricted user http://usa.autodesk.com/getdoc/id=TS1055299

More complete .NET fix if you did not go through this procedure:

Restart Windows.

Try the install again.

My autocad LT 2014 online trial was running but crashed.  after I restarted my computer and tried re-opening LT 14 trial, I get a dialogue box that is requesting a password.  WindowsServer2008R2 datacenter.  I was never given a password when installing the online trial.  I'm also testing out versions before purchasing because I cannot afford the revit package I was used to at my last company.  How do I get back into my 30 day trial?
