Anyone using LT 2007 or newer?
Tried installing 2000 LT on a new 64 bit laptop and obviously, it didn't work.
I've read some negative reviews of LT 2014 but from the people I've actually spoken with, the issues were related to working with older files. Some have suggested going with LT 2010.
Any experience with either version? Thoughts? Recommendations?
Does anyone have a full version of 2007 or newer laying around that they dont need?

Frank I purchased a new laptop and it's running Windows 7.
2000 LT is 32bit and my new PC is 64, in turn it doesn't work.
Fishboy's question is very is a good one and quite relevant. There are so my aspects of ACAD, generalized questions get you generalized answers.
My biggest challenge is dealing with other progams and applications that accompany ACAD files.

I use it for 2D construction drafting.
LT is all I need. For example 2000 LT does what I need it to do and really wouldn't need to upgrade if it were not for my new hardware and OS. That and I have had some issues recently with files sent to me that were created with newer versions.
Well currently you can still purchase the programs outright and register.
Haven't heard of any complaints on 2014LT to amount to anything. I do believe 2015 is out now.
There is a trick to get 2000 running on Windows 7 64-bit, are you running Windows 7 64-bit Home Edition?
If you want to use LISP like on full AutoCAD Bricscad is cheaper than AutoCAD LT.
Does this mean you won't be posting anymore of those hilarious GIFs of yours?

Im running Win 7 Pro 64 bit. Run virtual XP 32bit?
What is draftsight? Do you use it?
I use Draftsight at home, I use AutoCAD 2011 all day every day at work. Draftsight is just like AutoCAD for the most part.
Pro should run AutoCAD 2000 LT, there is a trick to installing because the installer is 16-bit. Look on the Autodesk discussion groups, several are running older AutoCAD on Win 7 Pro 64-bit.
AutoCAD has a free dwg. converter you can download. It converts them to any version, the last time I used it. It's been a few yrs since I've used it though.
The only thing I remember about LT 2000 it doesn't read the symbols & fractions in the text like the newer versions does. They will show up as question marks.
Looks like there are quite a few changes over the past 15 years but I needed to get up to speed with the latest and greatest anyway. It's going to take some getting used to but I've been working with it for a day now and have had zero problems.
From a cost standpoint it seems expensive but in reality it's trivial, relatively speaking. I have estimating software that costs me monthly what this program costs annually from a subscription standpoint.
It has a 30 day trial as well.
