Hi to everyone is couple of days than i try to install Autocad 2014 on windows 8 64 bits with not success everytime i tried i always get the same error as the picture:
I tried many things as i so in this forum as i saw in other forum ect....
I tried to check the following registry keys:
and they are as the following pictures:
and i check also that:
And after i checked also the environment variables as you can see in the following picture:
I don't know what else do, i haven't other idea please i need a quick help to fix my problem!
Solved! Go to Solution.
two good news from me:
1. The installation went fine w/o difficulties on our notebook - just with one HD (Win 7, 64 bit)
2. The installation on our workstation (Win 7, 64 bit, one SSD just for OS and program data - one regular HD for user data) worked fine now.
I got a phone call from the Autodesk Support Line.
We changed the following:
1. generated a local user profile with administrative privileagues and started it.
2. Switched the UAC (user access control) to OFF !!!
3. Opened registry and went to
and changed the keys
Common Desktop c:\users\public\desktop -> d:\users\public\desktop
common documents d:\users\public\documents
same proceedings for common music, common video, common pictures
(but I think it has nothing to do with this)
4. close regedit
5. reboot PC
6. Log in with administrative privs
7. start setup - and it worked.
So we are done with this subject and hopefully you benefit from this.
Pressing my thumbs that the next update from Autodesk could deal with these problems.
I forget to say that i all ready try to install Autocad 2014 "run as Administrator" and the user where i'm loged is also administrator i also tried to create a new user with administrator rights and i tried to install autocad but no way always the same error.
What else i can do to fix this error, please i need help!!!!!
Hi, I have exactly the same problem:
Same OS, same error messages, same countermeasures with no success.
I checked the availability of paths and my write permissions etc.
I have placed the setup on the local hard disc in addition.
No chance to get the Installation done.
Has anybody an idea?
same issue here
thos works well on Windoes 7 32 bit
but for Windows 7 64 bit
cannot install AutoCAD 2014
I tried it on 4 machines
everywhere same problem
thought I downladed the wrong/incomplete installer
downloaded it again, same problem
the user has all admin rights, everything seems fine
can anyone help!!!!
what I would like to add:
our CAD-workstation has an SSD (solid state disk) just for the operating system and the program data.
ALL user data ist stored on a second standard hard-disk. (D:\)
Is there a problem with different hard-drives for user-Data and programm data?
Hi, to everyone, seem to be that also other peoples has the same problem but until now no solution i hope to see soon some advice, and i wish that i and the other we can find the solution for our problem.
