Troubleshooting Error 4005 During Installation

Eden Davis Eden Davis


When installing AutoCAD 2023 or another program, you encounter the following Error 4005 "the install couldn't finish" error:


Corrupted On-Demand Installation Service (ODIS) installation or a connection issue such as Antivirus/Firewall/Proxy/ VPN (Virtual Private Network) preventing ODIS component from reaching out to the Internet.

This is a critical component of newer installation packages.

Affected Software

AutoCAD 2023+


Before you begin, delete all data in the following folders:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AdODIS\V1

Note: If these folders aren't present, it's been blocked from installation and is network/security-based rather than corrupt.

  1. Manually download and install ODIS from this link.
  2. Run the installation as an admin.
  3. Retry the AutoCAD installation.

Alternative Resolution

  1. Start Menu > Command Prompt (Run as administrator)
  2. Type the following command, replacing the bolded section with the correct path to your installation:
cd C:\Autodesk\AutoCAD_2022_English_Win_64bit_dlm\
  1. Press Enter
  2. Copy and paste the command below, then press Enter:
Setup.exe --noupdate
