Autodesk Education Master Suite 2014 + CAD Manager Tools
3DS Max Family: Error Could not write value CoreFiles to key

Tip: C:\Autodesk folder and Install Now option + Communication Failure

A quick way to determine if your downloaded installer files are from the Install Now option is if there is a "wi" or "WI" in the name.  In the example below:

  • AutoCAD 2015 is using the Install Now technlogy.
  • Autodesk Product Design Suite Ultimate 2014 is using the Browser Download.

Install-now-browser-download

The WI folder has a setup.exe in it.  If you run it from there, you will get a Communication Error.

Communication-Error

You can re-download the software as a Browser Download to solve this issue or re-run the Install Now option from the Subscription Center or Portal.
