    Default AutoCAD Bible 2008

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi all, I have a copy of the 2008 Finkelstein AC/LT "Bible"
    and I am having some concerns about the DVD.

    First off, if I try to install the trial software, I get the message "DWG Viewer location is not empty". Now I know that's because I already have a full version of the Map 3D installed, but will it interfere if I try to intall the trial software anyway?

    Second, I can't open the drawing files included on the DVD in either LT 2005 or in Map 3D. What gives?

    I really need to practice because I'm expected to do drawings in 3D within a few weeks at work!

    Thanks

    The drawing files on the DVD are likely in a 2007 dwg format. This explains why LT 2005 won't open them. What version of Map 3D do you have? You can convert the files on the DVD down to the 2004 dwg format by copying them to your hard drive and using the converter included in the free DWG TrueView

    If it were me, I'd avoid installing any other trial software or viewers from the CD

    Hmm, it may not be worth it then. The Map 3D version is 2009.
