Civil 3D 2013 Hotfix 2 x64 isn't.

Got an email from Autodesk titled: "HotFix Available for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013"

 

Clicked on the Readme (Learn more...) link which should go to http://updatesdl.autodesk.com/updates/files/autocad_civil_3d_2013_hotfix_2.htm. The link is broken, but I searched for 'Hotfix 2' on the broken link page and found the hotfix page. It is at http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=20384157&linkID=9240698.

 

There is an x32 version and an x64 version of the hotfix.

Having an x64 computer, and the x64 version of C3D 2013 sp1 installed, I clicked on the link to c3d2013_x64_hf2.1.exe.

It downloaded fine, but when run, a message box appears which states the following:

 

 

From the SP1 Readme:

 


This readme contains the latest information regarding the installation and use of this service pack. It is strongly recommended that you read this entire document before you apply this service pack to your product. AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 Service Pack 1 contains the fixes included in AutoCAD 2013 Service Pack 1.1 and AutoCAD Map 3D 2013 Service Pack 1. This service pack includes all previous hotfixes for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 including Hot Fix 1, Hot Fix 2 and Hot Fix 2.1. Because AutoCAD Civil 3D is built on AutoCAD and AutoCAD Map 3D, it is recommended that you also review the AutoCAD and AutoCAD Map 3D readme files at the following locations. For reference, you should save these documents to your hard drive or print a copy.

Hm. I'd think that as much as C3D phones home, Autodesk CER would know that and would refrain from emailing me about available hotfixes that are rolled up into service packs I've already applied...

Thanks for clearing that up for me.

Thanks. It would be good if Autdesk CEP had included that fact in the readme...
