Installing Architectural Desktop 3.3 on Windows 7

I'm retired, doing wood working. I use ADT 3.3 to model my projects. I get a fatel error message when loading, twice. It validates in the beginning of the loading and proceeds.

 

Is it compatable with the operating system, or is there another problem?

I was having the very same problem.  After a long night and early morning of searching for solutions, I finally found one that works for me.  Windows 7 has an XP mode available for download at:

 

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx

 

It can be a little diffictul to follow all the steps to get the XP mode installed and working, so be patient and be prepared to search google for more info.  Once installed, you can operate AutoCad 2002 ADT3.3 from a virtual XP platform right on your desktop....AWESOME!!!  You will have to find your CAD files on your harddrive and save them to a shortcut to the XP virtual desktop.

 

Hope it works for you.  All the best.
