Autocad launches whan an AFT App Starts

Last Updated: May 13, 2014 11:34AM MDT

The AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 installer launches when you start an AFT application



When you launch an application that is not AutoCAD Map 3D 2010 you receive a message from the Windows Installer stating the following:

"Please wait while Windows configures AutoCAD Map 3D 2010."

is displayed while the non Autodesk application is launched.

The Windows Application Log will also have this entry:

"Detection of product '{5783F2D7-8002-0409-0002-0060B0CE6BBA}', feature 'P', component '{43DB808E-EDB6-4FBC-A37D-41E59D400FCA}' failed. The resource 'C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\Geospatial Coordinate Systems Temp\Australia\Agd66\A66National(13.09.01).gsb' does not exist."


This attempt to heal Map 3D 2010 is benign and can be suppressed by following these instructions:

1. In Windows Explorer browse to:

XP: "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\"

Vista: "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk"

2. Right-click "Geospatial Coordinate Systems" and choose copy.

3. Right-click a blank space in the right pane and choose paste.

4. Wait until the copy process is complete.

5. Rename "Copy of Geospatial Coordinate Systems" to "Geospatial Coordinate Systems Temp".

Note: that Vista protects this folder with extra security. An administrator will need to perform these steps.
