    Question Windows Updates

    Does anyone know if there is any truth to the rumor that the Windows xp SP 2 is not compatible with Autodesk produts from 2000 to the present? Thaks in advance for any heads up on this rumor

    Hi

    Please note I've *moved* this Topic (Thread) from the CAD Management Software Forum to this one as I feel this particular Forum is a more appropriate place for such Topics (Threads).

    Thanks, Mike

    The new SP2 just released for XP was installed last week in our office. Both LDDT and Map 2k5 are running with fewer problems than with SP1. I don't know about 2000 or 2002, but even old r13 runs without problems. It was a pretty long install, but well worth the trouble for us.

    Here is a site the list programs that might have problems with the new windows firewall, and that you might have to open some ports.
    Some programs seem to stop working after you install Windows XP Service Pack 2

    A snip-it from the list.
    Program
    AutoCAD 2000, 2002, 2004

    Vendor
    Autodesk

    Ports
    21

    Default exception
    See the documentation

    Notes
    Needed to browse projects using FTP viewer (File Open dialog) when remote FTP host has Windows Firewall enabled.


    Here is a list of programs that might have problems with SP2. There isn't anything about AutoCAD
    Programs that may behave differently in Windows XP Service Pack 2
