Okay...so my hard drive is mostly dead. It completely shut down on me but I managed to get it temporarily working again via the freezer trick, and I've kept it running long enough to get a clone made on an external drive...but I can't seem to get AutoCAD to run from the external drive when I plug that drive into another computer. The program will fire up and run while it's plugged into the somehow-still-running computer with the mostly-dead hard drive, but I get an error message that says AutoCAD is missing a .dll file whenever I try to run it on the laptop. It also suggets re-installing the program, but the issue here is that I don't have my 2004 LT disk anymore; where it's gone is anyone's guess.
So, questions: shouldn't the cloned drive contain everything that's needed to run the program? How on earth do I transfer the program from one drive to another? I've got another internal drive that's sitting here ready to be installed, but until I can get the program safely moved onto an external drive I can't shut the computer down to install the new internal hard drive...it may never come back on.
Any help is much appreciated.
