Yet another announcement this week, but lower on the fun scale than some of the others. I’ll let Tom Stoeckel, Global Technical Lead for AutoCAD Product Support and author of Without a Net, do the talking:
An issue has surfaced with the new posting of Update 1 for AutoCAD 2011 and AutoCAD LT 2011 that has prompted Autodesk to temporarily remove download access to the update. If you visit the Update download pages you will now see product-specific versions of the following statement:
"On August 23, 2010, Autodesk released Update 1 for AutoCAD 2011 and AutoCAD LT 2011. Unfortunately, Update 1 introduced an issue when conducting certain operations that may cause AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT to shut down. This issue affects a small number of users.
We have removed Update 1 and will reintroduce it in the near future when the issue has been resolved. For customers who have already installed Update 1, a hot fix will be posted shortly. Please be assured that Autodesk is wholly committed to the quality of AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, and regrets this error."
Autodesk is working on a hotfix for those customers who have already applied Update 1 for AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT 2011. In the meantime, if you have not already downloaded and installed Update 1, please wait until the Update has been re-released.
Stay tuned to your favorite AutoCAD blog or Twitter feed for the announcement of the re-posting. Sorry for any inconvenience any of you may have experienced.
