    Exclamation How to install AutoCAD 2010-2012 .NET Wizards on Win 7-64 bit

    I have seen lots of posts - but no real good solution, and nothing really recent. So...

    I have:
    AutoCAD 2012
    Visual Studio 2010 Express (VB, C#, C++)
    Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit
    4.0 Framework

    When I try and run the "AutoCAD 2010-2012 .NET Wizards" MSI, it fails with a "There is a problem with this Windows Installer Package. A program required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor." I get the same message when I try and uninstall it.

    I have compatability mode set on the MSI file.
    There is no "Unblock" option for the MSI file.
    I have set the Program Files (x86)\Autodesk folder to read/write.

    What is the program it is looking for?
    What am I missing?

    There have been posts about creating your own template if you can't install the wizard, but I find no post that actually explains the process to do so. I have no .NET or Visual Studios programming experience (yet).

    I am trying to learn VB.NET to replace an old VBA .dvb file which doesn not work really on 64-bit.

    I'm at a loss at what do do about this, and the project I'm working on is rather urgent...

    Just for everyone's edification...

    I worked with Autodesk direct on this, and we came up empty. Could not get it to install on my PC, and we could not figure out why.

    I could get the variation of this to install. Go to and download "AutoCAD .NET Addin Wizard (AcadNetAddinWizard)". (There is usually a link at the bottom of most of the blogs.) That seemed to install and I could get at those Wizards.

    I was kindly given a Word Doc by the Autodesk support person (Thanks!!) that explained how to manually get an AutoCAD plugin started. I will attach that here.

    Hope this helps someone else frustrated by Stupid Windows Trollery...
