I have been running Acad r14 on Windows 2000 beta 2 with a Novell
Internetware server. All was good.

Last weekend we switched from a Novell server to a Windows NT4.0
server. Everything went smooth on the clients using Windows NT4.0
workstation. Adding a network printer (to the workstations) was VERY
easy. I just doubled clicked on the printer icon in the root
directory of the server. The workstation loaded the printer drivers
without a problem.

I did this on the w2k workstation also. No problem (almost). With
the exception of AutoCAD, all of the apps print just fine.

In AutoCAD, on the w2k workstation when I try to add a printer, in the
"Connect to Printer" dialog box.:
Microsoft Windows Network
NDPS Printer
NDPS Public Access Printer

None of the network printers show up in the dialog box.

So…. I cannot print form AutoCAD. Can anyone offer a solution… Thanks

FYI: One the w2k workstation, when I try to add a printer using the
"add Printer" in the setting | printer folder, none of the printer
show up.

FYI 2: I have administrative rights on the workstation and the Network

Thanks for any help you can privide...

Monty,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Beta software.
We are aware of the issue you describe. I do not have a solution for you except to continue trying later releases of Windows 2000 If this is a
production workstation, you may want to consider reverting to a supported operating system (Win NT 4.0, Win 95&98).

Once Windows 2000 actually ships, I do not know which of our current products will be supported on it.
