I have been looking around this site for info on installing Civil 3D, LDT, Survey, Civil 06. We are wanting to install the new version ASAP, however we are planning on testing it our with a select amount of users before we roll it out to the rest of the company. Is there any known problems that we might encounter when trying to install this while keeping everyone else in the company running on 05? Is this even possible due to licensing? Am I required to uninstall 05 before we go to 06, hopefully not? I would think they would allow some type of migration time, 30 days or so. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
How about the layer vs style option?
We are getting ready to implement c3d 2006, and was wondering if it's still "preferred" to setup styles based on layers rather than style for the reason of xref's as it was in 2005.
I learned from my sales reseller's "Tech Support" there ia an issue with License Manager for running 2005 and 2006 products side by side. AutoDesk has a hotfix for this.
You have to uninstall the current 2005 license manager and install the 2006 version then merge the licenses along with the hotfix is how it was explained to me.
So is it correct in assuming that you don't have a choice in upgrading to 06. For instance we would like to test out 06 in our company before we roll it out to the rest of the office. But if you are forced to uninstall the 05 License Manager to install the 06 LM, does that mean that the 05 licenses will reference the 06 LM until they are upgraded with the new version of Cad? My head hurts, j/j I would have thought with Autodesk go to a new release each year they would make it easy for people to migrate without having to halt production.
