Any one having issues with the final release of Windows 8 and Autocad Civil 3d 2013?
Everything works well, couple of minutes having the program running, the program crashes.
Tried different drawings, no luck.
Installed "Hotfix 2" no luck
Running with 64bit and as the administrator.
Being running 2013 on Win 8 Final Release (RTM) for over a month.
I did have a crashing problem and it ended up being the drawing.
Other than that no issues.
Have you updated your video drivers from your MFG web site?
All updates to win 8 installed?
Here is my system
Gigabyte MB, i5 3570 CPU, 8 Gb Ram
Corsair SSD Boot, 1TB WD Data Drive
AMD 6850 GPU (Not certified) (I play games)
Dual 24" Monitors
At work we have AMD V3900's for the GPU
Great $120 video card. Solved quite a few issues with 2013.
Haven't tried it on 8 yet.
Thanks for your responce.
Updated the vidieo card drivers
I installed all the current Windows updates.
Installed the Autocad hotfix 2 .
I just re-installed Autocad. No luck
I tried another drawings, does not seem to make a differance.
Sony laptop, Core I7 Processor
256 gb Sandisk Extreme SSD
Back to Windows 7?
Well it seems that windows 8 doesn't like cross sections.
It crashes when I try to work with sections. On my win 7 system
same dwg works fine.
Argh!! I'm really liking win 8 too.
AutoCAD + Civil 3d + Windows 8 = User Beware
i have Autocad Civil 3D Land Desktop Comapnion 2009
and i would like to install windows 8
if i install it, will the application stay working after the switch or will i need to reinstall autocad?
Refer to previous posts - Windows 8 remains unsupported and Autodesk software may or may not work - I'd suggest it may not be worth the hassle in a production environment at this time
Buy a new hard drive, do a clean install to it.
I'm going to buy anothe SSD so I can boot into
win 7 if I have to do crosections.
If it's your only hardirive I'd say no to windows 8 if
you need to use autocad.
