A few weeks ago, we explained a mistake that was made with the 2018.0.1 Update, and quickly resolved the issue by releasing the AutoCAD 2018.0.2/AutoCAD LT 2018.0.2 Update*. As this update fixes a defect that would cause the product to not start, it is critical for users who installed the initial 2018.0.1 Update to install the AutoCAD 2018.0.2/AutoCAD LT 2018.0.2 Update now.
Here’s how to update AutoCAD in 3 easy steps:
Step 1: Sign in to your Autodesk Account.
Step 2: Choose Product Updates on the MANAGEMENT page.
Step 3: You will see the option for the AutoCAD 2018.0.2 or AutoCAD LT 2018.0.2 Update. Pick the option that is applicable to your product, download and install it. The AutoCAD 2018.0.2 Update applies to the products listed below*.
- The 2018.0.1 version is listed in About dialog for AutoCAD 2018 and AutoCAD LT 2018 as version O.61.0.0. Once updated to the 2018.0.2 version, it will be shown as O.72.0.0.
- If you have installed the AutoCAD 2018.0.2 Update already, the product will not start and will display the following pre-release product error message:
If you’re seeing this message – and are not a Beta user – simply follow the 3-step process listed above to install the 2018.0.2 Update.
- For users who never downloaded the 2018.0.1 Update, the originally released version 49.0.0 does not exhibit this problem, and will work as expected past June 1, 2017. However, we still recommend updating it to the latest version, which is currently 2018.0.2 (displayed as O.72.0.0 in About dialog box).
We apologize for the inconvenience. You can find more information about this update here. For any additional questions, please reach out to us by choosing Support in the upper right-hand corner of the MANAGEMENT page in your Autodesk Account.
