Unless you can get it to run in Windows NT or Windows 98 Compatibilty
mode then no there is no hope of getting R14 to run in Vista. Vista is
at least two Windows OS kernels adavnced from the Windows versions
that R14 was completely compatible with.
I doubt the AutoCAD 14 is compatible but for a very realistic price
you could upgrade to progeCAD 2008 Standard or Professional and get
AutoCAD compatibility for about 1/10th the price of AutoCAD. Free 30
day download available at http://www.icadsales.com/index.pl?id=3909 .
progeCAD uses AutoCAD DWG files, supporting versions
2.5 through 2009, and has a command set about the same as AutoCAD.
Includes 3D surfaces and solid modeling, and is compatible with most
of the file types of AutoCAD including linetypes, hatch patterns,
menus, etc. Input and output to PDF.
