Trying to re-install R14 on Vista Home, here is this error message:
16 bit Windows Subsystem
C:\Windows\SYSTEM32\CONFIG.NT. (. This required system file is missing. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.
R14 worked fine since some days ago, but I think after some Vista Updates it ended working..
Did you ever find a solution for not being able to insert Raster Image - I have the same problem and just cannot figure out what to do... I've done as described above and below in the thread - changed all the permissions, downloaded and replaced the file - so it looks as if the program is running - but just the thing about inserting the image...
Have been reading all the threads and believe I need the SH31W32.dll - The thread way above with file attached is not working, does anyone have it?
Is this all I need to fix the two problems -mem_bad_pointer ans smartheap error handler messages.
Hi Ninja I did as you said with the sh31 file it let windows vista run my autocad 14.When I open the program it gives me a registry will not re-new error message but I close it and cad runs fine so far.When it installed I had an error one the vb and hp printers.But I am very happy now the program works now.
Thanks Very Much
Image command restored! Hope this helps someone. I am running AutoCAD R.14 on Windows Vista Home 32bit, and it seems successful so far. I renamed the SH31W32.dll file located in the AutoCAD root directory, replaced with the modified download from Ed S. post dated 5-14-07 on this thread and did also loose my "Image" command. My fix for this was trial and error in that I opened AutoCAD R.14 and restored down the program window in order to see my Windows Desktop. I had placed an image file in the form of a .jpg on my Desktop, which I then attempted to drag-n-drop onto my drawing screen as a test. An error will occur at first, but once you cancel this first message the "Image" command should be restored from then on.
I see that there are several links to a new version of Sh31w32.dll but...none of these links work for me. Is it possible to get a new link from a member or even have the new file emailed to me. Thanks everyone.
Forget it folks - just managed to get the file.
Well done to all concerned - I am now up and running in Vista.
