In order to fix issues with your 64bit AutoCAD LT 2014 running on Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10, you need to follow these easy steps…
NOTE: These steps do not bypass normal Autodesk licensing/authorization, you should expect to use your own serial numbers in the normal way.
- Make sure all previous installed versions of AutoCAD 2014 are uninstalled first.
- Obtain your copy of the Longbow Converter here
- Start the Converter tool
- Pick the 1st tab named “AutoCAD 32bit Installer Converter“
- Using your mouse, right click the tab text “AutoCAD 32bit Installer Converter” so that it changes to “AutoCAD 64bit Installer Converter“
- Next, using the “…” button, select your AutoCAD installation CD and follow the instructions presented by the Converter tool user interface.
NOTE: If the Converter does not recognize your because it is a single self extracting exe downloaded from Autodesk called something like AutoCAD_LT_2014_English_Win_64bit.exe, simply run the exe, it will ask to unzip to a folder inside of c:\Autodesk, make a note of the folder for later use (we’ll refer to it from here as c:\Autodesk\AutoCADLT2014), now click OK. Wait until all of the files have extracted, when they do, the AutoCAD LT 2014 setup will automatically launch – simply close it and move to the next step.
- Once you have completed the AutoCAD installation process…
- close the setup program then start the Converter software
- Select the 3rd tab “Old AutoCAD Program Reviver”
- Using the “…” button, pick the newly installed C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD LT 2014 folder
- then click “Fix Old Program“
- Next install the AutoCAD LT 2014 sp1 from here
- Now you can happily run your AutoCAD LT 2014 64bit on Windows 10
