Unable to install content libraries for Autocad Mech 2010 64-bit on Windows 7

Having an issue installing the concent libraries for Autocad Mechanical on a 64-bit Windows 7 machine.  During the install it give me this error (Error 1320. The specified path is too long: c:\documents and settings\all users).  If I go into configure the installation to modify the Content libraries under Autocad Mechanical 2010, it gives me this error (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Autodesk\ACADM 2010\ACADM\Gef\Gdb).  Any ideas?

 

Thanks,


Tammy

Hi, Tammy

 

The default install location for content libraries on a Vista or Windows 7 OS machine is as follows

 

C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\ACADM 2010\ACADM\Gef\Gdb

 

Can you try the above path during installation and verify if it works?

 

Please find attached snapshot.

 

Thanks

Tammy,

 

Since this Mechanical Desktop (MDT) Forum is not for AutoCAD Mechanical, I suggest that you post in the AutoCAD Mechanical Forum:

 

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-Mechanical/bd-p/39

 

or possibly better the Installation and Licensing Forum where the install experts hang out:

I hope this helps,

This problem is no longer a considered because it has been solved.There is away to fix this problem and the name of that software is Long Path Tool.I highly recommend it to you since I have already used it.
