Additional Comments

The following error message appears while installing: "Setup cannot register the following self-registering files: C:\windows\system32\MTSTACK.EXE;C:\windows\system32\COMDLG.OCX;C:\windows\system32\COMCTL32.OCX" I think if this could be solved everything would work.

HowTo / Notes


­by NSLW on (March 26th 2009)


    1. Use recent version of Wine(tested with Wine­-1.1.17)

    2. Download winetricks by following command


    3. Install required components by following command

sh winetricks corefonts tahoma

    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 )
    5. navigate to your AutoCAD R14 CD and run

wine setup.exe

PlayOnLinux way

You can install your AutoCAD R14 using PlayOnLinux (some kind of gui for Wine). I think it's the easiest method because script will tell you step by step what to do. To do so you'll need:

    1. PlayOnLinux

    2. POL Helper plug-in

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