Re: Autocad 14 Windows 7

I'm trying to install Autocad r14 on my windows 7 machine and it just doesn't want to load. I downloaded Windows 7 XP mode on my machine and Autocad r14 still won't install. What do I do? I love my Autocad r14. I have Autocad LT 2010, but it doesn't use my lisps I have on r14.

Hello everybody, I am from Brazil, and I would like to help your support to install autocad R14 on my machine.

I have the Windows 7 Home 32  bits, 3 Gb. I managed to install the autocad R14, but when I try to open it, the message always appear: "Mem Bad Pointer Erro".

I am a German. Sorry, my English ist very bad...


You must chance in a other Threat!!! Look here: "R14 & Windows Vista" , your problem is the same!


In this Threat look to the message #123 or #114 or  #29 or #18, you will find a *.zip- or *.dll Datei.


1)such in your Computer in C:\Programme\AutoCad14 the Datei with name SH31W32.dll and delete them.

2)Take the *.dll from Post #18 or #29 or #114 or #123 and put into  C:\Programme\AutoCad14 !

3)Start your AutoCad14! That's all!


Greetings from Munich/Germany :smileyhappy:

Re: Autocad 14 Windows 7

I am planning to purchase a new desktop and would like 64 bit Windows 7 Professional to take advantage of the additional RAM available with this OS. My problem is that I would also like to run Autocad R14 on this machine, due primarily to the large number of lisp routines which I have acquired over the years to aid in the preparation of Architectural Construction Drawings. I have a very small business, and cannot at this time afford to purchase a current version of Autocad.

I have read as much as I can find on the subject, and it seems that I will be required to run R14 in XP Mode, which can be downloaded from Microsoft.

My first question is whether there will be a noticeable difference in the speed of the program in XP Mode if my work is restricted to 2D, and the second question is whether XP Mode will allow me to run peripherals (specifically a HP Designjet 600 plotter) which are not supported in Windows 7 but which are supported in 32 bit XP.

Any advice would be very much appreciated.


P.S. This message is intended for Dean Saadallah, but was an inadvertent reply to another Party.

I have no experience running R14 and older plotter drivers in WinXP mode in Win7, but many excellent R14 users around here seem to have figured it out. Try a quick search.


And although this relates to R2002, it might be of use to you:


Many folks have luck with Vista or XP 64bit drivers in Win7.


Does R14 have a built-in driver for the HP600/650/700, through the PLOTTERMANAGER command? That would be the way to go for a driver. Trick then becomes figuring out what port to use as most new computers don't come with or have room for an LPT1 port.
