The Productinformation.pit file is like an Excel spreadsheet and it records all the 2010 & 2011 Autodesk products installed on your computer. This file will be present if you install the Standalone or Network versions of the software.
In some older posts, to resolve this error, you would remove the Productinformation.pit file to install the Autodesk product. The problem potentially is that it will cause all your other Autodesk products installed on the computer to not launch.
Here is an example scenario:
We saved a bit of time because the typical workaround would have been to move/delete the Productinformation.pit file, uninstall all your software and then and then re-install all your software.

This problem is still alive.
Yesterday I tried to install Autocad Plant 3D 2013, but the following error 1: 5 2: adlmPITSetProductInformation failed. 3: 2, blocked the installation.
I had to rename ProductInformation.pit in ProductInformation_.pit and reinstall Autocad Plant 3D 2013.
On my workstation was already installed the PDS 2013 and now I always have to rename these files when I use PDS or Plant 3D.
There is a final solution or just this workaround?
Thank you so much.
Uninstall all your Autodesk products. Delete the .pit fie and then reinstall the Autodesk products. This the only solution and it is potentially time consuming.
