1. Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties (desktop)
2. Go the the Advanced tab
3. Click “Enviroment Variables”
4. Under “system variables” find the “PATH” variable and click edit
5. Look for the old path “C:Program FilesAutoCAD Raster Design 2009” and remove it.
6. Click ok all the way out and restart AutoCAD
