Can AutoCAD 2010 be install on Vista Home ed?
When I try to install AutoCAD 2010 on Vista Home I get internal errors
and the install stop. Is there a solution to this?
What exactly are the errors?
I was running AutoCAD 2010 for a year on Vista Home.
Now I an running AutoCAD 2011 on Vista Home. (no problems)
What version of Vista Home do you have?
What version of AutoCAD 2010 are you trying to install?
Did you stop all anti-virus services (including TSR) and turn off UAC before attempting install?
Also double check which vista you're running, if you're running 64 bit, acad for 32 bit will have problems installing and vice versa.

Second install attempt I got the big blue screen and I could not catch the
error number. The third attempt, AutoCAD just did not install. I just got
a bunch of pictures.
I guess I need to know what if Vista Home is 64 or 32 versions.
How do you turn off the anti-virus services (including TSR) and turn off UAC??
Control Panel > System & Security > System. It should tell you if you are running Vista 32-bit or 64-bit.
I was under the impression that most AutoDesk DVDs have both versions on them and the pre-installation check determines which version is loaded automatically.
Does you system meet even the minimum specifications as called for by AutoDesk to run AutoCAD 2010? Some people who have problems find they do not have enough RAM or their graphics card is inadequate.

Both versions of AutoCAD & Vista are 32bit versions.
Vista has only SP 1 installed.
It got 2g in it. I think that is ok.
This question comes up about 30 times a day on the student community http://www.autodesk.com/edcommunity - apparently in the computer science 101 classes they do not cover operating systems. Even after I question someone I have to have them post a screen capture to prove that they are actually running Windows 7 32-bit version. Once I tell them how to find their system properties they never post back to thank me. LOL
BTY you can go to Start> and right click on Computer for Properties in Vista. I think I saw a keyboard shortcut (Windows key + something) but I didn't commit it to memory.
Are you installing from a disk or a download?
Is this the trial version, educational version or full commercial version?
If you're installing from a download, it's possible that some files may have been corrupted during the data transfer and you may need to re-download.
