I have Autocad 2000 installed on a Win98 machine, and would like to install on Win2k. However when I insert the CD and open the folder on the CD, it says E:\AutoCAD is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. When I install on Win98, it says it can be installed on win 95, 98, or NT 4.0. Is there a registry hack I can do to make Win2k install autocad?

ok lets try creating a shortcut on your desktop to the setup file. right click on this shortcut and got properties. there should be a compatabilty tab. go there and select win98. now try and run the setup.

I have checked around and you should be able to run this with no problems. (googled it).

let us know how this works for you.

OK, I got it to install, but I did it by copying the contents of the Install CD to my 98 machine, making a zip file of it, burning to CDRW, copying to 2k machine, unzipping, and sending shortcut to desktop and choosing compatability. I'm not sure if I needed to do the compatability or not, but I did it anyway. I was able to install an old win98 simcopter game to my pc using compatability also...Thanx for the info
