Hi,
I've just seen the Autodesk press release from February 12th with the info that AutoCAD Map 3D 2009 is "Citrix Ready".

Is this also true for AutoCAD 2009?

Thanks,
Peter

Does anyone happen to know if they fixed the licensing problem that resulted from using AutoCAD in Windows in Boot Camp?

Can CAD LT 2009 be converted into the classic CAD view?
If so how can I do this?

Thanks

Ed

Hi,

Is AutoCAD 09 compatiable with AutoCAD 04 LT? Errors?

Hamish,

I am not certain on what you mean by "compatible" but you can read LT 2004 DWG files with AutoCAD 2009. If you need to read 2009 created files in LT 2004 you can save in the 2004 DWG format. You should be fine.

Hello, I was wondering if AutoCAD 2009 uses the same file format as '07, and '08, or do you need to convert the files to be backward compatable.

Paul,

AutoCAD 2007, AutoCAD 2008, and AutoCAD 2009 all use the same DWG version and no need to convert between.

What are the key differences between AutoCAD LT 2009 software and AutoCAD 2009 software?

Both AutoCAD 2009 software and AutoCAD LT 2009 software programs use the same software architecture and technology, and both create files in the same native DWG file format and the DWF file specification. But AutoCAD 2009 provides additional capabilities in the following key areas:

* Advanced customization with LISP, ARX, and VBA
* Action recorder
* Conceptual design
* 3D visualization and rendering
* Network licensing
* Sheet set management
* Presentation graphics
* CAD standards management

Thank you for reading Between the Lines blog.

Can Acad2009 run without Visual Studio 2005?
Can we instead use Visual Studio 2008?
If not where can I download VS2005 version? i am having troubles finding it.
Thank you

Adam,

I am not sure what you are referring to unless it is for the AutoCAD SDK ObjectARX development in which case I would suggest asking Kean on his blog http://through-the-interface.typepad.com/.

Thank you for reading Between the Lines blog.

Hi,
Can this new version of AutoCAD color 2D drawings as easy as Sketchup of even Paintshop? If this is possible on this new program, how do you accomplish this?

Is there a memory allocation adjustment in 2009? I keep getting "out of memory" errors when opening a drawing that I never got with 2008. - I have a new computer, so I know there is plenty of memory to run the software. Thanks.

Joyce,

It sounds like a possible corrupted drawing if it is a specific file. I would suggest running RECOVER. It is hard to be certain with limited details but if RECOVER does not solve this please email me a Zipped DWG file and more details at shaan@autodesk.com and I will have a look when I get a moment although I will be traveling this week in Atlanta Georgia.

Best Regards,
Shaan

Shaan,
I know that it's not a corrupt dwg. It happens after I've opened 3 or 4 dwgs in this project. There are quite a few viewports in each file. The issue I have is that I can go back to 2008 - on an old slow computer - and not have this problem.
Thanks for your response. I'll let you know if I get things resolved.
Joyce

Joyce,

Thank you for more details. It could a number of things even the resources of your system or something loaded, a driver, or feature or change that was not in AutoCAD 2008. Does it only occur on this one system? Have you tried running in safe mode to rule out many drivers?

Shaan

Is Autocad LT 2009 compatable with Autodesk 3D Max, as somebody told me I would need Autocad 2009 to import plans etc.

Cheers

Jim,

Both AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT can save DWG files that can be imported into 3ds max. I hope that answers your question.

Can AUTOCAD 2009 be converted into the classic CAD view like AutoCad 2006? I am used to autocad 2006 interface and i am finding difficult to use autocad 2009.
If so how can I do this?

Kalpit,

You can simply change to the AutoCAD Classic workspace. Also I posted on this blog recently about how to make current AutoCAD look retro like R12 if you wanted. This way you get the productivity and new features of a new AutoCAD, yet look like it always has.
