does autocad civil 3D 2013 work with windows 8 64 bit

I can open the program and import a file .dwg however it closes as soon as any commands are done. 

Hi Jason,


You are trying to know if you can run AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 on a Windows 8 64 bit computer.


According to the AutoDesk website the program is compatible with Windows 7 operating systems. Check out this link from the support website.


However, if there is a need, you may still install the same on Windows 8 in Windows 7 comaptibility mode. Here`s how you do it.

  1. Right click on the setup file (the setup.exe file for the program) and select Properties.
  2. Now click on the Compatibility tab and check the box which says Run this program in compatibility mode for.
  3. Select Windows 7. Click Apply and OK.
  4. Now right click the setup file and select Run as Administrator and follow the normal installation procedure. Check to see if it helps.

Also see this link for more information. Do reply if you have more questions. Thank you.
