I have a problem installing AutoCAD P&ID. I can download the 2012 version 64 bit P&ID Autocad no problem, but when i go to install the program i receive a message stating that some files are corrupt and to download a new copy. I tried this several times with no success.


This is the message that is displayed during installtion

CRC failed in 3rdParty\NET\4\wcu\dotNetFramework\dotNetFx40_Full_x86_x64.exe

Unexpected end of archive.


Thanks for your help,


John Burns

Hi 20095614,


Please try alternative download method or download via a different browser and see if it works for you.


Thank you.

I have tried an alternative method by Running it then Save and running and both times i get the same message. I have tried 32 bit and 64 bit and still the same message. I dont have the option to choose my browser download, when I click to download the program a browser download appears, blue button, with the options to Run, Save and Run.


Also when I click the essential requirements section on the AutoCAD P&ID 2012 it displayes an error message saying this page can not be found?


The image of the program says 2013 but only versions 2010,2011 and 2012 are available for download.


Many thanks for your time

Hi Arlin,


I think the link would be the answer to my problem but unfortunately I am now receiving this message when I click on the link-


Account Is Not Linked to an Active Subscription Contract


This account is currently not enabled with Subscription capabilities and benefits.

We can help you link your sign-in account to an active Subscription contract. Click Continue to proceed.


When I click on continue is just refrshes the pages and shows me the same page.


I do not have a personal account with Autodesk, my account is a student account in the UK.


Sorry again for trouble,


Many thanks

I was able to download the program this time but when completed downloading Windows showed a message stating that this file is not normally downloaded and either to delete, view downloads or other options.

I was receiving this message with the previous download but under the 'other options' there is a run anyway oiption. I selected the option to run the program and the start up window for AutoCAD P&ID 2012 appears for me to install the program or configure the install. I selected the recommended download and the install began, as it reached 2 of 4 on the overview on the installation this message appears-


failed to find node://configuration/connect/VDrive in XML file:

C:/Program Files (x86)Autodeesk content

Service\Connect.Service.ContentSerivce.exe.config, system error:



Many thanks again,

Hello again,


I was wondering if there has been a solution to why I am unable to download AutoCAD P&I.


Many thanks,
