While I have administrator rights, I also set the program to run as administrator, and it has not solved the problem. Every time I restart the computer, it does the 1st run initialization.
Also looking for a fix. Running AutoCAD 2012 SP1 on WIndows XP SP3; getting "First run initializing..." message on every first load after startup. Very slow. I have local admin rights, but have also tried running as administrator. Problem persists. Desire to hurl computer out window also persists.
No solutions yet. Have completely uninstalled AutoCAD, and reinstalled. Still the problem with First Run Initialization persists. This is more than a little frustrating. Autodesk, can you please provide some help/guidance?
I'm still having this problem even though, as most others have said, I'm an Administrator and have set it to "Run as administrator" it still runs first time initialising after a re-boot. Has anyone found a solution yet?
