    Default Drawing Compare Utility not loading in AutoCAD 2009

    Have you installed the Drawing Compare utility from the Subscription Tools?

    I tried and get the error:

    Setup was unable to detect any target applications for Autodesk Drawing Compare 2009.
    Any ideas?

    Thx

    You have installed 09, right? Looks like it needs it, but I'm not entirely sure.

    Using ACA 2008 I've installed the 2008 drawing compare module without a hitch, but Brenda is correct that the 2009 module will only install on ACA 2009 (or MEP 2009 in your case). Have you looked in the subscription centre to get the 2008 version?

    If you are on 2009 then I'm not sure what the problem is

    PS: Any chance a moderator can move this thread over to the MEP forums as the Drawing Compare Utility isn't available to Vanilla Acad subscription holders.

    Thanks

    Ah there in lies the rub. The Subscription Center for my non-upgraded (Is that a word?) 2008 automatically takes you to the 2009 Version... good old Autodesk.

    I will now smack myself in the head stating a great Homer'esk... Doh!

    Thanks for the help!

    Thumbs down Re: Drawing Compare Utility not loading in AutoCAD 2009

    This is getting funnier by the minute.

    I open a Support Request through Subscirption to find out where they store the 2008 Version of the Drawing Compare Utility.

    They say that they can't find the 2008 Version either.

    Then they say:

    On your Subscription login page, click the link in the upper right corner for "Subscription Help" and ask about the availability of the MEP 2008 Drawing Compare module
    So I do.

    The answer I receive from Subscription Help is that they don't deal with techincal support of their web site and I should send a Support Request through my subscription service.

    Is Autodesk run by Micro$$oft?
