Re: Autocad 2004 and Windows 7 compatibility in XPM mode?

I can confirm that autocad 2004 installs and works natively on regular and pro version of windows 7 (64 bit) without the need of XP modes.  Rob

Re: Autocad 2004 and Windows 7 compatibility in XPM mode?

I have been running 2004 on Windows 7 64 bit machine for about 5 months now.  I have only one problem with it.  About 30% of the time when I hit the open button it crashes with a fatal error, and I have to re-launch ACAD.  It is annoying, but I just always hit save before open, and I haven't lost any work. 

Does anyone know if a patch exists for this?

Hi David,

 

I am thinking of doing the same as you have. Did you find a fix for your problem (There are two mouse pointers - one the typical AC crosshairs and then a standard mouse arrow, which I assume is the Win 7 mouse, and one lags behind the other.)

 

Also what version of Windows 7 are you running.

 

Thanks,

I did not find a fix for the double mouse arrow problem with XP mode.  However, I was able to get ACAD to work natively with Win 7 64 bit.  It crashes some, and flashes an error message every time I close the program, but it is much less annoying than the two mouse arrows.

How often is often: once a day, twice a day, once a week, once an hour.....?

Thanks again!

If you were replying to me about the crashing, it has only crashed completely two times, but I do get the error messages every time it closes.

Have you had any problems with your Autocad 2004 in native Windows 7 64bit?

I tried to install my licensed copy of Architectural Desktop from the original install disks directly into Windows 7 P 64 bit, but it showed a text file of the setup.exe file and I didn't know how to work around this .

 

So I went thru a long process of installing Virtual PC and Windows XPmode.

 

It then did allow me to install ADT2004, but it's a hassle getting into it and can be accidentaly closed very easily.

 

Does anyone know how to work around this install problem so I can work in ADT2004 directly in Windows Pro 64 bit

There is a third party tool called Longbow that claims to help older Autodesk software to install in newer Windows versions: find it and try it.
