How To: Install ArcGIS for AutoCAD with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 running on 64-bit Windows

Summary

Instructions provided describe how to install ArcGIS for AutoCAD Build 250 or 300 with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 running on 64-bit Windows.

Procedure

AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 is only available as a 32-bit installation. It can run on a 64-bit PC in compatibility mode. The current ArcGIS for AutoCAD setup does not allow users to install a 32-bit version of the software on a 64-bit PC.
To fix this issue, follow the steps below:

  1. Install ArcGIS for AutoCAD Build 250 or 300 64-bit version on the 64-bit PC.
  2. Install ArcGIS for AutoCAD Build 250 or 300 32-bit on a separate PC.
  3. Copy the contents of the ArcGIS for AutoCAD 32-bit folder to a folder on the 64-bit PC.

    Note:
    If there are any other Autodesk products on the 64-bit PC that need to run ArcGIS for AutoCAD, then do not replace the folder contents of ArcGIS for AutoCAD 64-bit.
