Re: Anyone try Windows 8 Developer preview?

Respectfully, it does work as I have done it as well as others using this method.  Please understand that Windows 8 is in beta and is not a supported OS for Autodesk products.  If this process did not work for you, perhaps there are other details that are preventing you from installing the software or you are missing a key step in the process.  There is no guarantee that the application will install.  I am simply providing the method that worked for me after many trials.

The words "Developer preview" in the actual title not enough of a clue??

After fiddling with it some more and editing parts of the setup.ini code that were creating some problems, I did get it to install.

 

Unforunately, Autocad seems really buggy and unstable in the new OS, but I guess beggars can't be choosers.

 

I'm sorry if I jumped the gun earlier, because your fix does work with a couple adjustments.

No hard feelings - we're all here to help each other. I'm sure Autodesk will approve Windows 8 for a future release and these problems will be a thing of the past.

FYI, just tried on the Windows 8 Release Preview and was able to use the original steps to install both  Civil3D 2012 succesfully (content server for C3D didn't install but I don't use it anyway).

 

Civil3D 2013 installed without any problems.

It's not getting pulled, the Release Preview is pretty much what is coming out later this year to manufacturing. I didn't like it at first but as I've used it I've become used to it and they've made many changes in the Release Preview that weren't in the Developer & Consumer previews.
