Autodesk is a world leader in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software. After you purchased AutoCAD 2013, the first thing you need to do is install it on your computer. Here are some tips you need to know before you start installation. Hope these information can help you.

Explore your design ideas with the powerful new features of AutoCAD® 2013 software. Connect with Autodesk® 360, share your designs with your social world, and work more productively with model documentation enhancements.  And with AutoCAD Apps on Autodesk Exchange, it’s easier than ever to customize your AutoCAD experience.

You can avoid problems and ensure a smooth installation of AutoCAD by employing the following best practices:

  • Confirm that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements. (Click “System Requirements” at the bottom of the Installer window.) Important: Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 (available on product disc) must be installed before you install AutoCAD.
  • For optimal performance, verify that your graphics card and driver meet certification requirements. A graphics card check will be performed during the installation process; you may receive a warning message if graphics certification is in doubt.
  • Be sure you have Administrator permissions in Windows®.
  • Remove previous installations of this release of AutoCAD, including any Beta versions.
  • Install all Microsoft Windows® system updates and restart your computer.
  • Before you install, exit all active applications. An even better approach is to install AutoCAD first thing after starting your computer, before using any applications.
  • Turn off your anti-virus program.
  • Be sure you use a single CD/DVD drive to install your software.
