Installed Architecture 2014 on a new computer and tried to migrate settings from 2013 after initial 2014 install and not able to do so. Running Windows 8.1 which I loath When trying to migrate I get a dialoge stating that autocad higher that 2000 needs to be loaded on computer.
2013 is installed on my old computer. The 2014 install is on a new computer "Fresh Install". I tried to use the migrate app loaded on the new computer when 2014 was installed.
On the 2013 machine when you execute the migrate program you select export and it creates a "zip" file that contains the pertinent autocad data for the migration. The migration process works the same as it did in 2011 going to 2012 and going from 2012 to 2013. When migrating before it prompted you to select the location of the "zip" file and the program did the rest and in the end my architecture desktop looked as it did before.
Migrating settings only works between AutoCAD's on the same computer. Exporting and importing settings is not migrating. Please have a look at this article on our web site:
Your best option is to install AutoCAD Architecture 2014 on the old computer in trial mode, migrate settings to it, then export those to ZIP and bring it to the new computer and import it.
