    Default cannot uninstall autoCAD 2009

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm attempting to uninstall autoCAD 2009, I keep getting a message reading:

    - Error opening installation log file. Verify that the specified log file location exists and that you can write to it.

    I have located the install log..... no what.

    Thanks in advance

    On the Autodesk website there are very specific instructions for uninstalling their software. You might want to check there.

    I always keep my older versions Installed, as some times I find I like doing certain things with the older version

    Am I alone in this or do others do this as well ?

    I tend to clean house when I have to, occasionally using a previous version, like with 2013, for instance.
    Interested by it, but not yet worth the aggravation of using it full time, so still using 2012, until they get it sorted out.

    You need administrator rights to the pertinent files. If you are a restricted user on your computer, then you won't be able to install or uninstall such programs.
    Sooner or later, you'll own Generals.
