I have a lot of 2006 and earlier Cad programs that I hope will work by dual booting with XP Pro. I hope to clone the HDD fromthe old IDE to SATA drive
I have the Autodesks disks too but I don't know if Autodesk will even honor or provide the numbers needed to reactivate them since there so old.
Then there is another problem you need to consider....Are these programs compatable with Windows 7?
I was planning to wipe the IDE and give the PC to my Grand daughter but if the above does not work I'll just keep the XP Pro PC and buy another for her.
