Hi vandido,

What platform are you on? What kind of license did you buy? Can you send a screenshot?
Thanks.

vandido_4ever,

 

Close the application, then delete the casecadeinfo.cas file located in the following directory and try again:

 

Windows 7:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\AdLM\

 

Windows XP:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\AdLM\

ProgramData is a hidden folder you will need to change the Folder Options so that they are set from Don’t show hidden files, folders or drives to Show hidden files, folders and drives you will then be able to see the missing folder.

Copy and paste the path from my previous response into the address bar of Windows Explorer then hit Enter.
