So whats the deal AutoDesk? Does anyone from the company read these forums? There is a big issue…at least acknowledge the existence of the problem.

Yeah, same problem for me, downloaded twice, changed the language, nothing works.

I really don't understand, because, there are no crash report or error message, not even on logs.

It would be nice indeed to have a little help over here !!

It works! :)

Finally, it works here :smileyhappy:

 

Here is my solution: Delete all Preference files and the Application Support files related to Autodesk. Then use the uninstaller inside the Autodesk folder and manually delete the remaining files and folders. Then reinstall Autodesk and voila - it works (at least here for me!) :smileyhappy:

PS: I have changed my language settings form Germn to English a few days ago and not changed it until now.

I am aware that there is a little script file called ' acadcleanup.bsh ' that can be found on internet to get rid of everything left some previous Autocad installation.

I haven't tried it yet because I haven't had the time to really search for this thing but from what I heard, it does the job, but unfortunetly, people say it's great without giving any links to download such a piece of script!! :smileysad:

Anyway, if I find a link I'll post it here...
