Release 15, Version 15.0
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).
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.
still need to try with the installation procedure

1. Use recent version of Wine(tested on Wine-1.3.9)
2. Download winetricks by following command
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
Then go to Graphics tab and change Screen Resolution from 96 to 108
(workaround given by Sheaff)
5. navigate to your AutoCAD 2000 CD and run
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:
