Autocad LT 2005 and 2008 Upgrade

I have Autocad LT 2005 and Autocad LT 2008 Upgrade installed on my XP machine.
I am getting a new machine with Vista 64.
How can I get my software installed on the new machine? Edited by: cornddog8 on Nov 6, 2008 10:21 PM

Looks like you will either have to downgrade your operating system to 32
bit or upgrade your LT to 2009.  Vista 64 and LT 2008 don't look to be
compatible.

Interesting. I run it everyday on Vista 64.

As a 32bit software, yes you do. I think Brad was taking the high road,
assuming the OP wanted full 64bit functionality and not emulation.

Actually I was simply repeating what is on the Autodesk website. Civil 3D
2009 specifically mentions running it on XP 64 and Vista 64 in 32 bit
compatibility mode, but LT 2008 does not have the same note. That said, it
might work, I don't think they will support it if you run it in a manner
that is not per their specs. For example, people have gotten 2006 to run on
Vista, but Autodesk won't support that. They put out a patch for 2007.

Per Microsoft, for software to bear the Vista logo it must be compatible
with both versions, 32 bit and 64 bit. I think they only make exceptions
for stuff that gets into the nitty gritty of the system such as defrag
software, antivirus, and the like. So 64 bit Vista should be able to run
32 bit Vista capable autocad, but won't necessarily gain the advantages
that come with a 64 bit OS. 2009 has a distinct version for 64 bit use
to gain those advantages.

I think my real problem will be the 2008 Upgrade will require the older version (2005) to be installed before it will upgrade it. WIll the 2005 install enough on the Vista 64 machine for the 2008 upgrade to recognize it is there to upgrade? Or will I have problems I won't want to address?

I have not tried this for a while, but in the past
all I had to do was put the old DVD in the drive.  I did not have to
install it.

You have not had to do that since R2000i/LT2000i... .
