BG-Map TechNote

Running BG-Map with AutoCAD 2006 on Windows 7

Updated 10/15/15

This document describes how to configure AutoCAD 2006 to allow proper operation of BG-Map.

Running older versions of AutoCAD under newer versions of Windows can lead to compatibility problems which prevent proper operation with BG-Map.  You can circumvent these problems by running AutoCAD and BG-Map in Windows Compatibility mode.

 

Configuring AutoCAD 2006:

 

Find the AutoCAD executable file acad.exe in the Program Files folder (Program Files (x86) if you are running 64-bit Windows.)

Right-click on the acad.exe file, and select “Properties.”

Choose the “Compatibility” tab.

Under “Compatibility Mode”, select “Run this program under Windows XP Service Pack 2”, “Run this program as an administrator” and “Change Settings for all users.”

 

Configuring BG-Map:

 

Right-click on the shortcut that you use to start BG-Map, and select “Properties.”.

Choose the “Compatibility” tab.

Under “Compatibility Mode”, select “Run this program under Windows XP Service Pack 2”, “Run this program as an administrator.”
