Hiya, I've got a 1 year old Macbook Pro with MacOS Extended (Journaled), which I understand is supposed to be compatible. 

 

I downloaded both the 2012 and 2011 AutoCADs and after downloading for about half an hour once I try and open the downloads to install the following warning message comes up:

Completely new to AutoCAD (I'm a student) and not particularly a whizz with my mac, any help would be much appreciated! 

Have also emailed the Autodesk help service so awaiting advice from them too!

Sorry, should have updated this sooner! I managed to fix it, very simple actually.

I was downloading the software via Google Chrome, but it only worked when I tried downloading it via Safari instead, not really sure why that worked and Chrome didn't, but thanks for everyone's help!
