Maya on Mac installation error: Could not Authorize User

We don't get too many issues on the installer on the Mac failing.  In this episode, the error is:

Could Not Authorize User

Errors:  Could not Authorize User.  System Error Installation cannot continue.

In this case, the solution is to create a root user account and install Maya using that account instead of your default main account with Administrator privileges. The root user account will be labelled "Other" when you logout of the main account.

AUTOCAD LT 2011を再インストールしましたが、ソフトを起動すると下記のメッセージが表記されます。
”AUTOCAD LT を実行できません。次の原因が考えられます:
1)このバージョンのAUTOCAD LTが適切にインストールされていない。この場合は、AUTOCAD LT を再インストールしてください。
2)AUTOCAD LT を実行する権限がない。”
解決方法を教えてください。よろしくお願いします。

I am going to be honest but it will be hard to troubleshoot this problem.
