    Have you tried redownloading the programme? It may be that the programme you have now is corrupt in some way.

    I have tried downloading it before but i still have the same problem! I have even run the compatabilty test and (SETUP AND EXE) starts to run but when it reaches about (13%) along the way it aborts it self. It then gives me a error message which is the following ERROR 5 FILE>(mydownload/AutoCAD/AotoCADDATA/asupport.z) . I have read somewhere about something called a (patch) what is it, and what does it do? Do you think it will help me any?

    @hopkinso or anyone else who can help me please THANK ALOT :confused:

    pretty sure...

    I am pretty sure you need to find out how to install the program in 98 compatible mode. I did it a while ago, but forgot how to do it.
