What works


The program loads until the GUI appears and the program menus are shown.


What does not

The GUI however is not responsive, and the window contents are empty (white). After a short while a Gui message box from Autocad says:

"Fatal Error: Unhandled Access Violation at 0x0"

The same message gets recorded in acad.err

To get to this point I ported all files from an existing 98 installation, and had to create symlinks in Program Files/AutoDesk/AutoCad2000 for all files in Common Files/AutoDesk Shared. Otherwise the resources were not found. In addition, I had to symlink/add dlls in C:/windows/system32, ported again from the 98 system (among these, msfc42.dll, ole32.dll, msvicrt.dll and others).

Workarounds

What was not tested

running wine setup.exe since I did not have the installation CD with me. However, I am asking the interested party (the engineer), who has the original software. Then I will update my report.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
­

­by NSLW on (March 26th 2009)

Installing

    1. Use recent version of Wine(tested on Wine-1.3.9)

    2. Download winetricks by following command

 wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

    3. Install required components by following command

sh winetricks corefonts mdac25 tahoma win2k

    It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components

    4. Change Screen Resolution in Wine configuration by typing

winecfg

    Then go to Graphics tab and change Screen Resolution from 96 to 108

     (workaround given by )
    5. navigate to your AutoCAD 2000 CD and run

wine setup.exe

PlayOnLinux way

You can install your AutoCAD 2000 using PlayOnLinux (some kind of gui for Wine). I think it's the easiest and cleanest method because script will install AutoCAD with service packs in separate prefix automatically. To do so you'll need:

    1. PlayOnLinux

WARNING
Do not use Wine 1.1.19 because in this version there is a regression which causes toolbars to be mis-sized.
