Autodesk does not support AutoCAD 2013 on Windows 8. I would hate to run a CAD program rewritten for the Metro UI!


Sorry, but your last answer is useless, doesn't matter what you like or hate. Fact is, AutoCAD 2013 can be installed on Windows 8, but it doesn't work when you use it, it closes constantly, so your article is misleading/false (I would not use the word fake, however).

True Autocad 2013 working on Windows 8, but having several problems. Hope they fix them. I got it just as hobbiest, but for such an expensive program they will have to give support for Windows 8 faster than you think.


O autoCad nao funciona no windows 8.
ele é instalado mas acontece um monte de "fatal Error" impossibilitado que ele seja usado


You must edit setup.ini and add line IGNORE_FAILURE=YES in "[DOTNET4 KB...]", "[DOTNET4] and "[DOTNET4LANG]". On Build 8400 works fine.


Can you give detail as to where and how you edited setup


autocad 2013 working under Windows 8 RTM but not lisp support :(


Hello everyone!
I'm installing autocad 2013 on windows 8 RTM with changing setup.ini file.
But on start autocad shows fatal error Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0000.
Has anyone an idea to solve this problem?


Did you install the .NET 2.0/3.5 feature add-on first?


Do you mean - instal .NET Framework 2.0/3.5 drivers before autocad installation?


Open the setup.ini
Search for the .net section (it begins like this: #============= DOTNET Begin ===============)
Paste "IGNORE_FAILURE=YES" without the brackets after the first voices (dotnet4kb..., dotnet4 and dotnetlang.

Setup will then work on win8.


I had the same problem and was stumped. I got a reply from Autodesk CER. They sent me to download the Maintenance update for 2013. Here is the readme http://updatesdl.autodesk.com/updates/files/AutoCAD_2013_and_AutoCAD_LT_2013_SP1.1_ENU.htm


AutoCAD runs smoothly on Win8 build 8400 after installing the 2013 Maintenance update.


how to download the above mentioned 2013 maintainence update?

All of a sudden I got this window when starting AutoCAD:

"AutoCAD Application has Stopped working.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.

Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I'm using v2013 on a desktop with Windows 8

I have been using the program since I got this new system in November without a hitch

Today I had to uninstalled AutoCAD and re-installed it and it worked good.

After I closed it and went to open the application again I got the MESSAGE again

This sucks - I use AutoCAD everyday for business
