Error 2738 during installation. (DLL registration solutions did not work)

Hello there.


I am having issues installing Autocad 2012 on a couple of machines. All of them are running Windows 7 Home Basic 64 bits.


I have read some suggested solutions here and on "up and ready" website with no success (posts and I have contacted @AutodeskCare on Twitter and ^CAM suggested me to come to this forum for further help.


These machines have McAfee Antivirus Plus (I read that some uninstallations of McAfee may produce the error, but I have it installed right now with no plans of removal for that).


The weird thing here is that on similar computers (same hardware and software installed) I have had no issues at all (this issue is happening on 3 out of 7 computers).


Thanks in advance for any help.
