Restarted machine.

Downloaded the 32 bit file this time and it seems to have worked except now it hangs up on initializing with a "The system cannot open the device or file specified"

now what?

Windows 8 is not currently supported.

 

You might have luck trying something like this:

Does this apply to DWG Trueview 2014?

 

I am trying to install on a Windows 8 Pro 32bit Dell Latitude Tablet.

When trying to open a drawing is says it's missing a diplay driver (.hdi) in the \drv\ directory.

 

Thanks,

Brett

portt, thanks for posting the screen shot.  I hadn't gotten around to it yet.  That's exactly the same message I'm getting.

After a while i resolved the Problem with Win 8 Dell Latitude and TrueView 2014.

 

1. Open "Regedit"

2. search for "CustomHeidiDriverPath"

 

they are two of them in the Registry. Delete both on the right side.

 

And it works fine :-)
