One of the first questions that I receive is "Can Autocad 2014 be installed on Windows 8 ?". The answer to that is yes you can. AutoCAD 2014 can be installed on Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8. AutoCAD 2014 is the first release that supports Windows 8. Earlier releases of AutoCAD do run on Windows 8, but they are not officially supported. So if you are using Windows 8, you will want to upgrade to AutoCAD 2014 for support purposes.
If you are going to use AutoCAD 2014 on a touch screen device, you will want to make sure you enable the Display Touch Mode Ribbon Panel option on the System tab of the Options dialog box.
Till next time
P.S. Have you seen the new Autodesk Logo?
