URGENT: Autocad (& LT) 2018 critical patch

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

 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 three easy steps:

Step 1: Sign in to your Autodesk Account
Step 2: Choose Product Updates on the MANAGEMENT page.

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 below*.

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:

For users who never downloaded the 2018.0.1 Update, the originally released version O.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).

We apologize for the inconvenience. You can find more information about this update here. For any additional questions, please reach out to us by choosing Support in the upper right-hand corner of the MANAGEMENT page in your Autodesk Account. *AutoCAD 2018.0.2 Update applies to:

 AutoCAD® 2018

Vault 2017 crashes on install

In the UK, follow this:

In Windows Explorer, go to this folder​ " C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\CLM\V3\MSVC14\resources\adlm
Copy the contents of the mainstream local folder to your locale.
For example: If you are using a Windows with a English (United Kingdom) locale, copy the "en-US" folder and paste it in the same location above but rename it to "en-GB" folder. 
Once this has been copied, it should be possible to start the Vault client without it crashing
