Thanks for your help with the Acad14/Vista problem. I've had success with your suggestions but am having font file problems.
Vista is not recognizing my .shx font files and is substituting with system font files. any suggestions.
This fix works great! I'm not sure which permission actually did the trick though. I tried changing as many as I could, but to no avail. I then modified the permissions on the root AUTOCAD directory and ran autocad as admin. Everything works great now. Thanks Ed S!!
Would you be able to send me more explicit instructions on how you were able to make AutoCAD 14 work on Vista. I never imagined I would ever run into this problem "upgrading" my computer and its operation system (Vista). Thank you. firstname.lastname@example.org
I too am a long time lurker and just cannot figure this out. Could someone please help me or tell me whom I can call to receive assitance. I'm willing to pay that's how frustrated I am. At first I was getting the 2 typical errors Mem_heap and so on. I downloaded the new dll file and dropped and dragged it into the property to replace the old dll file that was listed here. Now, Im getting a message
AutoCAD application is not working. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly
Please help me. I'm guessing I need to uninstall the program, and reinstall 14 but then what do I do? I'm trying to get this up and running before work tomorrow.
I too joined this group to say thanks, as I no longer get the Mem errors. However, it doesn't recognise my dongle. I noted when I installed AutoCAD an error message about "HP printers" came up. It was difficult enough finding a new computer which had a parallel port (no laptops - I had to get a low spec desktop PC). I think Vista looks great, but a shame it doesn't work with most of my existing applications.
