Recently, I was given some data on the Top 5 forum post activities in the Install & Licensing Discussions group and we were trying to figure out a way to solve them.  So drum roll please, I am hoping to post the Top 5 forum issues each month.   I will try to highlight knowledge base articles, workflows, tips, & tricks as necessary.

Hello @Paul,

 

Would you mind taking the following troubleshooting steps and let me know if it helps resolve the issue?

 

  • In the preferences or options area of your preferred browser, remove pop-up blockers and allow access to all *autodesk.com sites.
  • In the preferences or options area of your preferred browser, delete cookies, temporary internet files, and history.
  • Turn off your personal firewall or VPN, if you use one.
  • Disable UAC
  • Close and reopen your preferred browser.
  • Re-download your software from the Virtual Agent

Thank you!

Hi,

 

Good morning.

 

I was able to download the Autodesk 2015 design standard upgrade from the subscription center but there is a "file corrupted" prompt whenever I try to install it. I download it several times already but still the same error message. Please advise.

 

 

Thank you for your time,

Michael

Recently I downloaded a student version of Autodesk Inventor Professional 2015. It consists of two *.sfx.exe installer files, when I clicked on it gave me an option to select the location and it started extracting with no issue until it reached 7.31 GB of the 9.10 GB mark of the extraction process and it hangs there. What should I do. This is my second download and install attempt what should I do?

My specs

Windows 8 and Windows 7 both 64 Bit, tried on both OS.

400GB+ of hardrive space

8gb ram 

Nvidia gtx 780Ti graphic card

Intel Core i7 2600K processor

 

Thanks!

Hi @athomas160 and welcome to the Autodesk Community!

 

Have you tried changing your download method? That often resolves download issues. Please let us know if the problem persists. Thanks!

Hello,

 

I'm having an issue starting AutoCAD for the first time. I installed the software, and when I start it up, it says "Welcome to your trial."

 

I put in my user info, and when I click the 'Sign In' button, red text appears above the entry fields 'error [object Error]'.

 

I'm wondering how to fix this. I have the serial number and product key, but I didn't find them until after I had passed that step in the installation. I imagine reinstalling would work, but if there's a quick fix I'd like to hear it.

 

Thanks,

 

Jason
