The installation gets about 75% through and i get an error "Read error in the file C:\Desktop location\AutoCAD_2012_English_Win_32bit.exe"


I am running Windows XP with all the latest service packs.

You may need a lot of disk space for the installation to go thorough because if the drive is really fragmented, it can cause read/write errors.  Try exacting AutoCAD on to a separate drive (external).  If that doesn' thelp, then the only other option is to re-download the application.
