I bought a new system that came with Windows 8 and cannot use AutoCAD for my business anymore - (unless I uninstall and re-install every day) - It did run great for 2 months
When are you coming out with the updates for Windows 8
I hate being held prisoner

Hello Tony D,

As you know Windows 8 released later than AutoCAD 2013 and other vertical products, So Windows 8 is not a supported system by now, except below products:


  • Autodesk 3ds Max 2013
  • Autodesk 3ds Max Design 2013
  • Autodesk Maya 2013
  • Autodesk MotionBuilder 2013
  • Autodesk Mudbox 2013
  • Autodesk Softimage 2013
  • Autodesk SketchBook Designer 2013


Could you wait some time for the 2014 release or hotfix for 2013 to be supported on Windows 8?
