Win 7 Home Premium upgraded my machine from Vista Home Premium with little hassle, leaving all my installed applications in place, and to my knowledge all seem to run okay except AutoCAD. I get the above compatibility alert, click the "check for solutions" button, am directed to the message "download fix", or something like that. I download the fix, which is actually an exe file for Service Pack 1, I run that. Then when I attempt to run AutoCAD, I get the same two buttons to click, "check for solutions" or "run".
This time I choose "run" but nothing happens. I check my Task Manager and see that Autocad is not one of the apps loaded.
Should I proceed to uninstall, then reinstall acad?
My last resort, I think, is to create another disk partition and install Windows 2000 Pro there. I don't want to do that, however.
Thanks for replying. Hmmm ... looks like Win 7 Home Premium is a step back from Vista Home Premium in that one respect. My Vista had the compatibility mode, which was how I was able to run 2005.
A new partition with win2k looks like my only alternative.
