Seeing this error on a new installation of AutoCAD 2013 is the reason many of us decided to uninstall the release. It is also why it will remain off my computer(s) until a Service Pack or Hotfix is issued. This error message hit a lot of people and was discussed in the Autodesk AutoCAD 2013 discussion board shortly after 2013 was released.

The lack of reports may be an indication of how many people simply abandoned the program as much as anything else.

Thanks for your comments. Troubleshooting Windows issues and software installations can be tricky.

As a blogger, I would publish a post if 1) I had to type the response to a case more than twice. 2) If a solution or workaround for a problem has been found.

We created this blog as an avenue of 'data sharing' and I hope this helps in the future when deploying or installing our software.

thanks David, i have tried this using 'repair' am I supposed to 'uninstall'?
i still get that very helpful error of a yellow exclamation mark. i found this problem with the last 3 versions and solved it by buying a new computer. not an economic way to go.

I would turn off UAC and repair .NET. There are a lot of variables that can cause this problem, please check out this additional post on Revit re-installation as well.
