    AutoCAD Installing AutoCAD 2016 trial version

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have been attempting to download the trial version of AutoCAD from their website and it has been on the 'Downloading...' and 'Initializing' screen for over 20 hours. Using speedtest.net showed my download speed is just over 30MBps

    Should I continue to wait or is it feasible that it will take this long?

    Thank You

    When I downloaded Studio Max it took a few hours, something like 4GB worth of files, but 20 hours is ridiculous.

    It could be that your download has stalled for some reason. I think I would cancel the download and start over again.
