    Default Some AutoCAD Software Not Yet OS X Mountain Lion-Compatible


    For those of you who use your Mac for work and are considering updating to OS X Mountain Lion, it might be useful to know that Autodesk recently issued a support document, outlining which of its products are not compatible with the just-released Mac operating system. The support document states the following:

    The following products are currently NOT supported on the Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) operating system:

    - AutoCAD 2013 for Mac
    - AutoCAD 2012 for Mac
    - AutoCAD LT 2013 for Mac
    - AutoCAD LT 2012 for Mac

    If any of these products are installed on Mountain Lion, undesirable side effects can occur, including issues with Installer re-start, resetting applications, cursor missing when printing to PDF, and more. Our engineers are working round the clock to support Mountain Lion for these products, however no support is currently available.

    Until such time as a service pack is available, we highly recommend NOT installing Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) on any machines where AutoCAD 2013 for Mac, AutoCAD 2012 for Mac, AutoCAD LT 2013 for Mac, or AutoCAD LT 2012 for Mac is required.
    As of right now, Autodesk has pointed out that a beta program which adds support for OS X Mountain Lion to AutoCAD 2012 and 2013 will be released in the near future. That being said, the company did not include any specific about a timeline or when exactly the beta program would be released.

    What this means for you professionals who use their Macs in the production environment is that it would be wise to refrain from updating to either software or operating system for now. At least until Autodesk confirm that everything is functional. Otherwise you’ll be stuck without being able to use the software you might need until further notice, until you get Windows installed, or until you seek an alternative machine to use Autodesk on.

    ...it's called beta for a reason. When you develop on a beta things Change sometimes so much that you have to rewrite half a program. Apple dropped Rosetta unexpectedly on lion. Don't act like devs aren't working on this. People like you irritate me cause you have no perspective and have never coded yourself. You can't just magically fix everything.

    I think it's funnier that it's autocad2009 for unix.
