Critical Action Required: Install AutoCAD 2018.0.2/AutoCAD LT 2018.0.2 Update | AutoCAD Blog


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 as
soon as possible and before June 1, 2017.

Here’s how to do so in 3 easy

Step 1: Sign in to your Autodesk Account.
Step 2: Choose Product Updates on the
How to Install the AutoCAD 2018.0.2 Update

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

Important Notes:

  • 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 do not install the AutoCAD 2018.0.2 Update by June
    1, 2017, the product will not start and will display the
    following pre-release product error message:

Installing AutoCAD 2018.0.2 will fix this error

  • 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. Even
    then, 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).
