  1. Does anyone know if windows 2000 pro and autocad 2000 are compatible? I am looking to upgrade a client's network but I can't do even a proposal till I know with reasonable ertainty that it will work. I would appreciate direct emails if anyone has a definitive answer (ie past successful experience). Thanks. email to jw@lectrys.com

    I have used Windows 2000 and Autocad 2000 together in the past. The solution was unstable though- I can't say if that was a result of the Windows or the AC2000 or what. There were other quirks that lead me to believe that it was machine related, and not a direct incompatibility.

    I note on several webpages that the system requirements for Autocad 2005 still allows Windows 2000. For that reason I highly suspect the two are compatible.

    Also see http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/item?siteID=123112&id=2865811&linkID=2475323 for the direct requirements. I see mentions of Windows 2000, but never a direct "yes" or "no." http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic16125.html indicates it's been used on XP Pro, and http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=2523151&linkID=2475161 shows that Autocad has release at least one patch for Win 2000 used Autocad 2000, but they still do not officially support it. I think however you'll be safe.

    Hope this helps.
