I have tried to install AutoCAD 2011 and 2012 both but am unable to install either of them.
For AutoCAD 2012, as soon as I start the install, I get an error message. The error goes along the lines of:
"/SecondRun/ lang en-us / FirstRunThreadID 3996"
**Each time I install, the FirstRunThreadID gives a different 4 digit number.
As for AutoCAD 2011, it fails installation at installing Micorosoft Visual C++ 2008 (x86) and installation aborts. (It also USED to fail at installing C++ 2005 but now apparently it passes that and reaches C++ 2008 where it fails)
From Log file for AutoCAD 2011:
InstallMicrosoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable (x86)FailedInstallation aborted, Result=193
I am trying to install 64 bit versions of both of them, but both dont work. I'm running a 64 bit WIndows 7 Professional with 4GB RAM.
**I have also manually installed the Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 (x86) and (x64) manually as well as used windows clean up utility to clean up AutoCAD after a failed install.
Any help will be greatly appreciated as I need this program quite urgently.
Can you check out this post?
I am wondering if an updated Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package is causing the problem.
I checked the "uninstall a program" and it says I have visual C++ 2005 and 2008 installed but not 2010.
Hi, thanks for the suggestion but I encountered a problem
I was able to unstill the visual c++ 2005 completely but not 2008 (x86). It gives me an error saying "Another program is being installed. Please wait until that installation is complete, and then try installing this software again " I even reboots my computer but it still gives me this message.
In addition, AutoCAD also fails to instal and crashes at installing the visual 2008 x86. I think maybe the visual 2008 x86 is corrupted? Any ideas on how to fix it?
Solved the problem. My mistake was unrar-ing the setup files. turns out I didnt have to. It installed!
Thanks for all the effort, appreciated.
ACTUALLY IT DIDNT INSTALL. IT SAYS ONE INSTANCE OF INSTALL IS ALREADY RUNNING AND FAILS AT VISUAL X86
i'll probably reinstall windows
