After generating a new game and pressing select, trying to click on any of the menu items gives me a pop-up telling me to run setup. exe to install Autocad 2017 (hxxp: prntscr. com/h80ra8)

After the message pops up I can open the system menu, but nothing loads and none of the buttons work.
hxxp: prntscr. com/h80pq8

Any help would be greatly appreciated, sorry if i'm missing something really obvious here.

This is not supposed to happen.  I don't know what Autocad 2017 is, but it has nothing to do with Aurora.

Which version of Aurora did you install?  Did you use the portable installer?

That is the portable installer. It looks to me like something isn't installed correctly and something in your system is assuming part of aurora is an Autocad file. You might want to try the other version.

I've tried both versions and even file sharing but no matter what the game will always try to open autocad, even though on the other computer it works flawlessly.

I have however found a workaround.  As it turns out, the autocad installer seems to prevent one window from loading correctly, and that window will be the first one I open (i. e if I open Economics as soon as I start the game, economics will not load properly until autocad installer gives up after a few hours.  Right now I'm just loading in the sector info since it's the page I use the least, and then load up system map and everything else works fine.

This is pretty annoying since every time I want to do anything with sectors I have to save and restart the game, then save and restart again but at least I can play now :P

https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/installation-licensing/visual-basic-6-0-ide-triggers-autocad-2011-install/td-p/2680348 A few other searches through google suggest that Autocad does that if the install is broken.
