(Sorry for my english, I'm french )
I just finished my application .NET which run perfectly on AutoCad 2014. Now, I want to launch it on tablet and I would like to know how it works. I'm trying to make a POC (Proof of concept) to see if it's possible to implement.
For launch the application, I need:
- Two .dll files
- One .SDF file (SQL Server Compact 4.0) for the database
So, I would like to know if it's possible to launch it on a tablet. I heard about AutoCad 360 but it seems like I can't run any .dll.
Can you guys give me some advices or tips ?
I await your reply,
Well, if your tablet runs AutoCAD 2014 (Windows Vista/7/8), then you are OK. The only tablet on the market that is capable to run AutoCAD as desktop application is MS Surface Pro, which is no different from a Windwos desktop/laptop machine, in terms of running AutoCAD.
...and I believe it's not just any Surface. It would have to be the Surface running the Windows 8.1 operating system as I don't believe the Windows RT OS will run desktop applications.
Thanks for your answers.
I understood that I'll need Windows 8 or 8.1 and not
I've look about some tablets and I found severals:
+ XPS One and Ultrabook XPS 12
+ MS surface pro
+ Asus VivoTab
Norman why did you say that "The only tablet on the market that is capable to run AutoCAD is Ms surface" ? The XPS One seems to be a good one too (I'm talking about features). Maybe I'm wrong...
Have a nice day,
this depends on the os, and i do not think it would be a good idea to run autocad on a tablet, which would consuming your resources immediately.
I'm running visual studio pro, autocad 2014, and inventor 2014 and a host of other software on a surface pro without any issues but I'm not doing any heavy cad work with it, just programming.
