AutoCAD 2012 license cascading issue with Building Design Suite Premium/Ultimate.
AutoCAD + Norton Utilities = AutoCAD secondary installer when running Norton Utilities

Building Design Suite Premium/Ultimate 2014 + AutoCAD 2014 + Windows XP

If you look at the 2014 System Requirements for Suites below:

You will notice that Windows XP 32 bit is only supported in the Building Design Suite Standard 2014.

What happens if you need AutoCAD 2014 on XP and you own Building Design Suite Premium/Ultimate 2014?  

The USB Media and the installers provided are 64 bit only so you will need to download AutoCAD 2014 32 bit via our Virtual Agent (step 3) to install it:

Then use using the correct the Product Key for the Premium or Ultimate Suite to complete the installation.

Xp-acad-2014

Epilogue

You must use the correct product serial number with the correct product key. For example, if you are using a Building Design Suite Premium serial number, you cannot use a Building Design Suite Ultimate Product key. The install will go through with either product key but the software will not auto-activate on our backend systems.
