Transparent Toolbar Button images

To create a transparent background in the Button Editor for creating images in AutoCAD 2004 and higher. To do this you can use the Light Grey color in the lower-left corner of the swatch for AutoCAD 2002 and earlier, or the True Color 192,192,192 in AutoCAD 2004 and later.

Unable to load autocad 97 on windows vista


I don't believe Autocad will work at all on Windows Vista.

The only other solution I can think of is to download Virtual Box from http://www.virtualbox.org/

You will need to have an XP cd to install, and basically you will be installing an XP virtual machine, at which time you can then install Autocad 97 onto that virtual machine.

Hope this helps!

My plotter is recieving info. but takes forever to start plotting.


Try turning the nesting function off. This can save paper when you are doing high volume printing, particularly with smaller drawings but wil cause extreme delays if there isn't a steady flow of drawings going to the plotter.

My PC desktop is making a clicking noise


Assuming the 'clicks' are heard when you're on the net...it could be a page in the background updating its 'ad' or auto 'clicking' to another page (within the main page on a different frame). This happen alot on hotmail pages ads using 'Flash'.

You can turn the volume off while surfing until you need to listen to something & turn your volume back on. (I do)

Hope this throws some light on the issue
Good Luck!

I had a cad drawing and I was messing around with it and lost it tried recover and can't recover it. I had someone resend it to me and every time I get it it changes to a file I can't open it is white page...


Most CAD programs such as AutoCad have a history of recently opened files. In AutoCad go to TOOLS/ OPTIONS/ FILES/ Automatic Save location. There you should find a file with the same name but a different file extension such as .BAK (AutoCad back-up) You can set AutoCad to automatically save to any time period, such as every 15 minutes.

Make a copy of this .BAK file so you keep that unchanged, Then change the file extension of the copied .BAK file to .DWG. Then you should be able to open this file. A file with an extension containing the $ symbol needs to be recovered using the programs recovery tool, in FILE/ DRAWING UTILITES/ RECOVER

If you're using a different CAD program look for this backup file wherever the programs Autosave files are set to be stored.

One other possiblity is the file extesnsion is set by your computer to open with another program for some reason. Right click and hit "open with"

Let me know if this helps

I have my AutoCAD LT 2007 loaded on a PC which is now being replaced by a newer model and I need to find out if i need a new security code, etc to install my AutoCAD on my new PC. Serial No. is...


HI spe 1,

First off you might want to take the serial number out of your post via the edit command. its valuable.

Ok so down to business. The answer your looking for is yes and no, i know not very helpful eh?

Disclaimer: i am not talking about the terms of service of any company.

some software is a one time buy, you buy it and you can install it on as many machines as you like with the same serial number. Other software is a one time install then the serial number is used or "burned" on the internet via there website and internet connection making it unusable for a new install ever again.
I know that autocad's serial number will allow you to do a fresh install on a new system; now whether or not they want you to is another story. Please check out their terms of use for that info.

I hope this helps and if you have any other questions please feel free to post them

To fix the problem I redrew the componenet and deleted the offending file. I found that I could open the file with AutoCad LT but not AutoCad 2009 Mechanical.
