Re: AutoCAD Architecture 2010 - 32bit verses 64bit

Another thing to keep in mind is that if you are upgrading customization content, you need the new versions of your customization tools, if you use these, of course:
a 64 version of DOSLIB ( DOSLib18x64.arx ) at
a 64 version of ObjectDCL ( ObjectDCL-ARX64-7.2.0-Setup.msi ) at
a 64 enabler of VBA ( AutoCAD VBA module 64-bit ) at
Also, after installing the VBA enabler, the old VBA routines have to be checked one by one. Most of them will work, but some lines of code might need to be changed. Some of them might cause AutoCAD to have a very slow performance while saving. It is recommended to migrate these routines to the new VSTA programming tools.
The very old, good, and simple AutoLisp will still work, as always.

If hard drives do make that much differance, have you considered solid-state drives? I've seen some impressive speed tests.
