Trick AutoCAD or Inventor to install in Windows 8

MS Windows 8 will be officially supported only in new versions of Autodesk CAD applications - in the 2014-family. But with a special, unofficial procedure you can install also AutoCAD 2013 or 2012, AutoCAD LT or Inventor 2013 in the new Microsoft Windows 8 operating system (both 32-bit and 64-bit).

So if you have a new notebook or desktop PC with Windows 8 and you don't want to wait for the compatibile versions 2014, you can use the installation and run method described in the Tip 9032 on and run the current version of your favorite CAD software today.

  1. Does this also apply for AutoCad 2010?

  2. AutoCAD 2010 will be probably too old for this (it was the first version compatible with Win7...).
