AutoCAD 2008 is compatible with Windows Vista:
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/item?siteID=123112&id=9217791&linkID=9240617

Also, make sure your AutoCAD installation has the most recent updates:
http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/linkedsumindex?siteID=123112&id=2334430&linkID=9240618

Chances are, either your plotter is not supported by AutoCAD 2008, you do not have the proper drivers installed for your plotter, or the plotter is not supported by the manufacturer to run on Vista.

According to the company auto cad 2007 and 2008 was not mad to work on Vista. You will need to download autocad 2009 which will work.

Windows Vista does not support that program. you need to "upgrade" to windows XP or wait for windows 7 if you really need that program. That's all I can help you with. Please rate my solution.

I really need more info, like have you installed the Vista drivers for the plotter,if you have and you have run the plotter using other software, then try right clicking on the .exe file or startup icon, go to properties, click on Compatability. select XP(assuming the software is compatible with XP) or whatever OS your software is compatible with. This should take care of any non driver related issues.

Windows vista does not support this software with drivers, my recommendaation is to contact the web site of the autocad and see if you can locate factory drivers for vista, if they have the download available then it will work

IS the driver for the plotter installed? Can you plot using any other program? Is there a test feature in the plotter driver so you can test the plotter? What plotter is it?

Intel 845 Graphics driver is not working in Windows 7 what to do?


Hi

You need to obtain a windows 7 driver for it, or if one is not available then use a vista driver, make sure the driver is 32bit or 64bit depending on the type of your system.

if your windows 7 is 64bit, then you can't use vista 32bit driver. you have to use a vista 64bit driver.

Or if your windows 7 is 32bit(most are) then you have to use a 32bit driver, the 64bit wont work in that case.

1. PEN NOT LIFTING. HOW DO I ADJUST PEN LIFT 2.PAPER SKEWS TO LEFT 3. NEED SERVICE MANUAL ON SUMMAGRAPHICS PLOTTER HI7200


Installing Pens

Most types of disposable pens must be activated before using the for the first time. If you are installing a new disposable pen:
  1. Press down on the pen cap to break the internal link seal.
  2. Holding the pen with its tip pointing down, shake the pen to start the ink flow.
  3. Remove the cap and test the pen for ink flow on a scrap of paper or media before installing it in the plotter.
    Some types of pens require adaptor sleeves to fit the pen holders in the pen changer and pen carriage. Insert each pen into its adaptor sleeve, if required, before installing it.

Using the Pen Changer

You may find it easier to temporarily raise the pen changer arm to install pens. Press the widest part of each pen into the jaws of each stall in the pen changer. After installing all the pens that you plan to use, lower the pen changer arm until it latches into place.

Notice that the pen changer stalls are numbered 1 through 8 from right to left (viewed from the front of the plotter).

Note: Make sure that the pen changer arm is in its lowered position and latched into place each time you power on or reset the plotter so that the plotter will correctly change pens.

Operating Without the Pen Changer

For operation without the pen changer, position the pen changer arm in the raised position and install a pen directly into the pen carriage by pressing the widest part of the pen body into the jaws of the pen holder on the pen carriage. You can still produce multi-pen plots, if desired, by enabling the PEN PAUSE parameter--------------Online KeyThe Online key toggles the plotter between on-line and off-line operation. The mode is displayed with each key press.

The plotter is initally in the on-line mode at power-on. In the on-line mode, plotting operations are enabled. When media is loaded in the plotter and the plotter has been selected (see below), an on-line plotter begins executing plotting commands from the input buffer as soon as they are received from the host computer.

In the off-line mode, the plotter can still receive data into its input buffer if it has been selected, but plotting operations do not begin until the plotter is switched on-line. The plotter can be operated manually in the off-line mode using the following control panel keys:
  • Pressing the left or right arrow key moves the pen left or right.
  • Pressing the up or down arrow key moves the media in or out of the plotter.
  • Pressing the PEN SELECT key accesses a menu to select a given pen from the pen changer.
  • Pressing the PEN UP/DN key raises or lowers the pen.

Pressing the Online key during plotting switches the plotter off-line and suspends plotting.
Pressing the Online key again will cause plotting to resume at the point of suspension. ------------------Pen Up/Dn Key
The Pen Up/Dn key raises and lowers the pen when the plotter is off-line. If there is no pen in the carriage, pressing the Pen Up/Dn key causes the plotter to retreive the currently selected pen from the pen changer (if the pen changer is installed and is in the lowered position).

Note: After approximately two seconds of no pen movement, the plotter will automatically raise a lowered pen to prevent ink from bleeding on the media, until the pen is moved again. If the pen is not moved for the period set for the AUTO-CAPPING parameter , the plotter will return the pen to its pen changer stall. To restore the currently selected pen to its previous position on the media, press the Pen Up/Dn key or an arrow key. Pen Select Key
When the plotter is off-line, pressing the Pen Select key allows you to select a pen from the pen changer. After pressingPen Select, press the <-- --> keys until the desired pen number is displayed on the lower line of the LCD, then press the Enter key. The plotter will retreive the selected pen from the pen changer.

The Pen Select key is also used in the Configuration Menu,

Hp design jet 750c plus. while plotting auto cad drawing,i command it to plot black/white (mono) but it plots all in color instead.I selected mono button on the printer as well.


Your plotter driver needs to be set to either black or greyscale. The driver will overide the settings on the plotter unless you set up the plotter in manual. ie the pen thicknesses, colour etc are set in the control panel to manual. The driver takes priority always.

Incomplete plot from .pdf file - Hp DesignJet 1050C Plus


Was the plot originally done on a size D or E plotter.. A .pdf is generally not a good way to send a plot that has to be done to scale.. Can they re-send the plot in a hpgl format, or a format that you can use in another program, liks ACAD, and then print it through that program? This would provide you with some control, that a pdf document will not allow.

This is just a stab in the dark for me, but I am familiar with plotters in general, just not the many formats to print from..

**you need a good driver:
whilst ordinary printer drivers may treat plotters like very large, slow, desktop printers, our driver uses the native vector graphics capabilities of your large format plotter to render CAD and line drawings at maximum speed.
