I have acad 2009 running in both win7-64 and in the xp-mode-32bit. I don't recall any serious issues with either install process - may have had to 'run as administrator' for the win7 install. You may have a problem with the xp mode install itself...
Unless you have reason to do it, avoid using xp mode. There is no hardware graphics support at all, so the cad interface is really clunky. I have had to do this because autodesk refuses to allow us to install a 32 bit version on a 64 bit OS (which should work fine), and I need 32-bit acad to interface with certain Bentley products. Such are the joys of moving to 64-bit
AutoCAD 2009 was not designed to run in Windows 10 (Windows 10 was released after AutoCAD 2009) and inevitably you will run into issues such as random crashing out, slow startup problems, text scaling issues, etc.
Old topic but I'll hope it will help those struggling with activating LT 2009 under Win 7. If you have updated to IE10 or later - remove those updates. ad32lw.exe will function if Win7 has default IE8.
If you modify the shortcut to load a certain profile instead of the autocad default profiles, this will solve the problem in AutoCAD Architectural and other verticals. Saves you loading the profile manually every time you open Architectural
I am using autocad 2010 and I wanted to change the bacground color of the model space to black. I tried to follow the instructions you posted under background but the display tabs shows nothing. All it says is to select component, which i am not able to. please help.

Carlos, what exactly is missing? It may be that the drawing contains proxy objects. These could be new object types from later releases, or special objects created in vertical variants of AutoCAD. You can install object enablers for some of these objects, which you can find at:

NOTE: Nested external references (xrefs) may produce excess scales. To correct this problem, install AutoCAD 2008 Service Pack 1 or corresponding service packs for AutoCAD-based products. The Scale List Cleanup Utility repairs files affected before the necessary service pack was installed.
While the above-described manual method of AutoCAD transfer is free, it can be very exhausting and time-consuming as you not only have to install the new instance of the program on another device but you also have to take care of moving documents, customization files (blocks, linetypes, plot styles, pattern files, and special CUI files), and other associated files.
Prior version support is the new thing for the 2009 productswhen it comes to network licensing. When new licenses are generated for subscription customers the license file will allow the current and three past versions to run.
Freewheel. Share DWF files on the Autodesk Labs Project Freewheel Web site using the ShareNow plug-in: (Available in English only) Find: Find text. Locate text in an open file within Design Review. Find Parts in an assembly. Quickly identify a specific part in a complex assembly. Rotate 2D sheets prior to adding markup. DWFx is the new default file format for Autodesk Design Review 2009. Team members using Microsoft Windows Vista can view 2D DWFx files without installing any software. Enhanced user interface allows more user customization. Palettes can be grouped, docked, and pinned. Create customized layouts that best suit the needs of your team. View 3D flexible components published by Autodesk Inventor. Batch Print functionality no longer requires a separate downloaded plug-in.
After publishing a sheet set to DWF or DWFx and I try to open it right clicking on the plot tray icon and selecting View DWF file I get the following error in Design Review 2009: "Your current version of Design Review does not support files of this type".
Annotation Scaling - A drawing that contains a large number of anonymous blocks and copies of annotative entities created in AutoCAD 2007, or an earlier release, opens slowly in AutoCAD 2009. (Fixed in Update 1)
Version 11.4.1 of the FlexNet license manager that ships with AutoCAD 2009-based products is backwards compatible and will administer licenses for the Autodesk 2008-, 2007-, 2006-, 2005-, 2004-, and 2002-based products as well as products from other vendors. 57600ACD_2009_0F is the FlexNet feature code for AutoCAD 2009. The registry hack to change from SLM to NLM will not work completely with AutoCAD 2009 so if you have a standalone installation you need to uninstall completely before installing the network one if you also want the cascading functionality to work.
Make sure to install dictionaries as feature if you select a custom installation. Even if you don't need multi-language dictionaries you will get an annoying error message every time you want to create or edit text. "AutoCAD Message - Unable to find main dictionary. Could not start speller."
Installing from Dual CD/DVD ROM Drive Systems Installation fails if you attempt to install AutoCAD 2009 installation discs in different drives of a dual CD/DVD ROM drive system. You must use the same disc drive in order to complete the installation process. HTML Help Fails When Launched from a Network Drive You cannot launch the Help System from a network drive. A "Page Cannot Be Displayed" warning is displayed. This limitation is a result of the Windows Security Update #896258 from Microsoft.
Running a Network License Manager on Microsoft Windows Vista When starting the network version of AutoCAD 2009 on a Microsoft Windows Vista workstation, you may encounter licensing error -15 if the license manager is running on Windows Vista (FLEXlm server version 11.4.100). Do the following: Install the latest Service Pack and updates for Microsoft Windows Vista. If you continue to encounter errors, do the following: On the Start menu (Windows Vista), click Control Panel Network and Sharing Center Manage Network Connections, right-click on Local Area Connection. Select Properties. Uncheck Internet Protocol 6 (TCP/IPv6). Click OK.
FlexLM License is Created in Two Locations The FLEXlm License Finder dialog box may not display upon each launch of AutoCAD 2009 for non-administrative users who are using Windows Vista 64-bit. This is becuase the license server path information is stored in the HLKM\STOFTWARE\Wow6432Node path, which is not accessible to non-administrative users. To fix this problem, replicate the license server path information stored in the above path to go to the HKLM\software\FLEXlm License Manager path.
Remote Access Applications It is not recommended that you use any type of remote access application in conjunction with AutoCAD 2009 when it is configured to use hardware acceleration. Most remote access applications cannot support hardware acceleration, which can cause general display failure and instability. If you need to use remote access applications, disable hardware acceleration or use the /NOHARDWARE command line switch to start AutoCAD 2009 in Software mode. Hardware Certification Database To download and install the latest hardware certification XML file, visit the Hardware Certification website at -graphicscard.
The Customer Involvement Program involves you directly in telling Autodesk The commands and features that Autodesk should focus on The commands and features that are hardly ever used The most common problem areas The hardware typically used with AutoCAD Note. You can start or stop your participation in this program at any time. Access to the controls is available from the AutoCAD Help menu. In network installations, your system administrator can choose whether to make the CIP program available or not. To turn the CIP on or off Click Help menu > Customer Involvement Program. In the Customer Involvement Program dialog box, click a level of participation, and then click OK.
You should verify and update your graphics card driver to optimize AutoCAD 2009. Use the following procedure to identify your current graphics card driver. To identify your graphics card driver Start AutoCAD 2009. At the Command prompt, enter 3dconfig. In the Adaptive Degradation and Performance Tuning dialog box, click View Tune Log. Review the 3D Device section for information about your system's graphics card driver and driver version. If you find that you do need to update your driver, visit -graphicscard to find a certified driver for your graphics card. If you do not find one, visit the graphics card manufacturer's website. Note. If the graphics card manufacturer does not have an updated driver, check the system manufacturer's website. Companies like IBM, Hewlett Packard, and Dell often supply their own system drivers. 2b1af7f3a8
