Installing AutoCAD 2014

I recently installed AutoCAD 2014 on my Dell Precision M4300 (32 bit, Win 7 – older machine) and wanted to share the process with you.  So I created some screen caps along the way.  It was a fairly smooth process for a standalone install and it went off without a hitch.  I installed from download and not media.  I think that many will be doing this because they chose a non media purchase process or they are installing the 30 day trial version.

The download is 1.37 GB so prepare for a lengthy download depending on you network speed.

The first thing it will do is unpack the download which may take some time also.  There were a couple of times when I thought that the unpack had stalled and I was about to cancel and restart, but the progress bar jumped so I stayed put.  My patience paid off and it completed.

Install Prep 1 [1]

Once I had the installation files unpacked, the install started.

Install 1 [2]

I selected Install and proceeded.  I was prompted to accept the License and Service agreement, which like most people, I did not read.

Install 2 [3]

Then it wanted my serial number and product code.

Install 3 [4]

Once provided…  I was off…

I was able to select the default install, but if you desire, you can define the exact installation you want.

Install 4 [5]

Things progressed…

Install 5 [6]

and about 20 minutes late I was done.

Seemed pretty easy and straight-forward.  Now on to Activation…
