Hi

Is a vanilla copy of AutoCAD installed alongside Architectural Desktop and
can it be run on its own. This can be done with machanical.

Thanks

I'm running both at home. I do drawings for a
custom window manufacturer (sort of shop drawings) and I use plain vanilla
AutoCAD (well...I sooped it up just a bit ;-) ) for these drawings. An when I
want to play architect, I use ADT3.3. No problems. Even have VIZ3i running
fine.

Ahh.......now you want my dirty little secrets,
huh!

I'm part of the Autodesk Developer Network, so for
a small, phenomenal fee each year, I get ALL of Autodesk's software. I did a
totally separate install of both programs.

 

However, I think you could create a profile which
would disable loading of ADT software, pull out the AECARCHX menu, and create a
template file that uses no ADT objects or other "stuff". You could then use this
profile when launching Vanilla AutoCAD from the desktop (use the /p option; you
could call the profile Vanilla e.g.). You can probably even change the icon
appearance.

I'd set up a profile for vanilla AutoCAD as opposed
to loading another copy of the program


Hope that helps,
