reseller none of the current Autodesk products are supported in Vista. The versions that come out this spring supposedly will be the Vista compatible versions.

Yes I heard this every time a new version of windows has come out but yet it always seems that Acad will run on them.

Mason, I tried to send it to you and I received an error. Try this...http://www.dallasnews.com . You may have to register to read the articles...that is no biggie....just do it and you will have access instantly. Click on Business, then on the left side click on Personal Technology. Then look for the Vista article dated 1/26/07. That shoud do it. Shirley

OK Thanks
It was the UK launch today and theirs not a lot to be said for it other that they seem to be concentrating on the fact of what little it is compatible with and that's not a lot according to the BBC.

Running on Vista and being supported by Autodesk are two different things entirely. Yes, you may get the software to work, initially. Then all of a sudden something doesn't work. Don't call Autodesk for help because "they don't support it". I know this because I did Autodesk product support for a reseller last year and that is what the official Autodesk line is. That being said, your reseller's tech support may try to help you with a problem with an unsupported configuration, but they don't have to if Autodesk does not support your version on Vista. I now work for an architectural firm that wants to test Vista. We bought a new Dell Precision Workstation preloaded with Vista Business. The company runs ADT 3.3, ADT 2007, and Revit. We will be getting the 2008 versions of ADT and Revit pretty soon under our subscription. I will loading ADT 3.3, ADT 2008 and Revit 2008 on the Vista box to see if 3.3 even runs well enough to use it and if it conflicts with ADT 2008. I will try to post the results on this group.

I am running Acad 2004 on RC1 build 5600. So far two features do not work (ie Acad aborts) opening the layer manager and opening the load autolisp dialogue. Actually the abort occurs when I close either dialogue. Works fine using the command line.
