this is How to install autocad 2015 to windows 10

Well, I tried to install AutoCAD on Windows 10 but I faced a problem that the AutoCAD can't detect the dot net framework 4.5 on my computer , and when I try to fix that and download it from Microsoft, it says that .NET Framework is already part of the system. So, if U face this, don't give up. Here is what U have to do to fix this, step-by-step. 
--------------------

Well, the solution is easy. We should change a key in regestry then AutoCAD will be able to check the .NET Framework, but the problem is that we don't have access to change that, so we have to do some clicks to get the ownership of that key.

Here are the details: 
#1 - Go to "Regedit", and then go to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Client"

 

 

 

When U get the ownership of the "client" folder, change the key "version" to "4.5" and start installing.  ;) 

 

When U finish installing, U can change this value back. 

 

Have fun! 

 

 

For big resolution, I post those pics here, too. 
Anyway, if this post helps U let us know. ;)

I think there is no problem.. Do it again after clean srart up.
Clear ur start up programs from "ctrl+alt+del" dialog. Then restart.
Then try..
If than didnt work,, try to do it in safe mode.. I think it will work. If it still not working.. Try to download teamviewer and contact me on "Zaher.Mohsen@gmail.com" i will give it a try too ;)
I hope it will works fine after vlean reastart. Give us a feed back if u solve it ;)

I had to do this for Windows 8.1 to get the 64-bit Autocad 2015 to install.

 

Installer kept failing on .net 4.5 and Microsoft would not let me install it b/c it is already part of the Windows 8.1 OS.

Sounds like same problem as with Windows 10 preview, so in my view Autodesk should fix it.

I had to do the registry edit trick to get Autocad 2015 to install on 64 bit Windows 8.1.

This computer has never had any beta or preview OS installed on it so I think the problem deserves more research.

I saw in the setup.ini file in the folder where the setup.exe runs from that the installer should ignore the "missing" .net 4.5  

     IGNORE_FAILURE=YES

but for me it would halt and the log showed .net 4.5 missing as the reason for the failure.

 

This reg hack allowed me to install it.

There's no client folder in my Registry Editor. Does this mean its not possible to download cad?

The last step is to change registry value back to 4.6.x when you are done!  One of my customers also mentioned the following:

 

"....those instructions mostly worked. I also had to give the logged on user full control to the key (in addition to making them the owner of the key), and push the rights down to the subkeys, then it worked for me."

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Client"
