I will greatly appreciate any help I get. I'm a student, trying to install AutoCAD 2012. I already have Autodesk Revit 2010. I downloaded the 64 bit installation exe. Upon installing, I get this error during the installation Error: 1: 5 2: adlmPITSetProductInformation failed. 3: 2 This happens when there is 5 of 11 items remaining. I have searched and tried to delete the so called "ProductInformation.pit" file from the adlm folder but that hast worked. I have tried installing 3 times now and I stil get the same error. In the installation log I get the follwing.

For delete .pit file may cause other Autodesk product not work, so remove all Autodesk products(http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=2887771&linkID=9240697) from a Windows system to ensure a clean machine will be more time saving than to find what the problem is.
Just a quick Update:
I've now tried installing AutoCAD 2012 more than 8 times. I've tried disabling the UAC (user account controls), I've turned off my antivirus, I've cleared my temp folders and cleaned up my system registries. I've re downloaded the setup.exe again from the autodesk website. I've done all my windows updates. I'm running out of things to try.
Please any help will be greatly appreciated and will spare me hours that i'm putting into solving this.

Thank you so much! This seems to have done the trick.
- I uninstalled Revit 2010
- I cleaned all traces of autodesk (manually deleting, using Ccleaner, and so on)
- I deleted the autocad registries using 'regedit' (creating a clean machine)
- Turned off my antivirus.
- Reinstalled AutoCAD 2012 and it worked like a charm.
Thanks again Emily Xu
I tried removing all the Autodesk products from control panel but the same error " Error: 1: 5 2: adlmPITSetProductInformation failed. 3: 2" keeps popping up while trying to uninstall any of the autodesk products. Please advice me on what to do to remove the products so that I can reinstall them again
Could you please find and delete ProductInformation.pit file first, then try to remove Autodesk products.
The ProductInformation.pit file can be found on the workstation in the following locations:
C:\Documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\ADLM\ProductInformation.pit
Windows Vista and Windows 7:

I have done everything to clean up my computer and I still get the same error... I'm out of options..
It would be unaceptable to have to reinstall windows because of this.
I'm on Windows 7 with all the latest Windows Updates.
Any help please?
I had the same problem and here is how I solved it:
-Run the installation of CAD product (in my case AutoCAD 2013)
-While the installation is running, open Program Data/Autodesk folder and wait until folder "Adlm" is created
-Right click on it, go to properties, choose Security tab and choose "advanced"
-Choose Owner tab in there and change ownership to administrators/user
-hit Ok on all the opened windows
-wait until end of installation and check that folder if ProductInformation.pit has been created successfully
Hi Emily Xu
I'm on the verge of depression with downloading autodesk products --
I have done all the steps you have asked with no luck - I do not have an ADLM folder at all
I've cleared all autodesk products and tried fresh installs but it stops at the same problem!
Hello I had the same problem last night trying to install Autocad in My Wife's computer... and the only thing that I did was to erase the ProductInformation.pit and then uninstall everything from autodesk and reinstall everything and it worked..
This file is locates in C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\AdLM the problem may be that it is a hidden folder, you need to go to folder options and then change to see hidden folders.. I attached mine in spanish as an example...
