Re: Which OS with ACAD 2002 ?

We have very few problems with Win 2000 and moderately current machines (p3 400 Mhz to p3 1Ghz and adequate, not over abundent Ram (528 Meg)

I've been using AutoCAD 2002 with Win98SE for a year now on a Sony VAIO Laptop with no problems ever with AutoCAD. I sometimes get other problems but mostly with an IE6 and Adobe PDF conflict caused most certainly by IE6. OK I do mostly 2D stuff which is not processor hungry. (PII, 255mhz 64MB SDRAM) in the VAIO.

We have NT on all our older machines, XP on anything new.

Have you tried to do a "clean" reinstall of everything, including the OS?

Getting back to the original question of Win2000 vs. XP, most reports are that they are pretty close to equal in stability. I chose 2000 over XP for other reasons related to licensing and freedom from onerous MS restrictions.

Which is why I still run Win98SE and it works OK for me.

I run under Win 2000 & XP home with no problems ever. But at least with Win 2k, I don't have to call the 'Devil' to get running again if I ever do crash.

I run AutoCAD 2002 and Autodesk Land Desktop R3 under Win 98 SE with NO problems. Except one:
Sometimes Autodesk Land Desktop R3 crashes when I use the 3DORBIT command in large drawings (IMHO this is a bug in OpenGL video 3D acceleration driver). I have found the trick against this kind of crashing: I'm just save my drawing before use 3DORBIT. In 99% cases this trick works fine.
:)
In all of other situations AutoCAD 2002 and Autodesk Land Desktop R3 work PERFECTLY !!!
P.S. IMHO the funny stories about bad luck of Win 98 SE and AutoCAD 2002 occur from the crooked hands and bad knowledges of a computer usage.
LOL
