If you ever get this error below the solution might be to re-apply the Windows 7 Service Pack 1.
Unable to run AutoCAD. This may be due to one of the following reasons:

2) You do not have sufficient rights to run AutoCAD.

Up and Ready has this tip. When extracting the installers for Autodesk products, keep the destination folder name as the default. i.e. C:\Autodesk. If not the paths might be too long and you get the error: Some files could not be created. Please close all applications, reboot Windows and restart this installation.

Also found on Up and Ready. Do not stop or disable the LanmanServer service. If you do AutoCAD 2012 will lockup or freeze and it will probably affect other programs as well.

The Server service supports file, print, and named-pipe sharing over the network for this computer. If this service is stopped, these functions will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.
