Published date: 2010-Apr-23
ID: TS15047015

Applies to:
AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2011
AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2010

Issue

You try to install Civil 3D 2010 on the same machine where AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 has already been installed and you get the error  :
The installation is forbidden by system policy. Contact your system administrator. #267.

Solution

If you want to install multiple versions of Civil 3D 2010 on the same machine, you should always install from older to newer version.
Example  : Install AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 first, then install AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011. Not the other way around.

The reason behind that is because the product refers to shared files, you should make sure the shared files are always the one that comes with latest product version.
