Install AutoCAD Raster Design on a 64-bit operating system

You installed a 32-bit version of AutoCAD® 2009 or 2010 or other AutoCAD vertical product, such as AutoCAD® Map 3D 2009, AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009, or AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2010, on your 64-bit operating system. However, when you tried to install AutoCAD Raster Design 2009 or 2010 and link it with these products, you received the following error message:
No supported desktops for AutoCAD Raster Design 2009 were found...
Please Exit and Install a supported desktop before proceeding.
This error message indicates that the installer was not able to find a 64-bit application.
To correct this issue, you need to redirect the installer to look for 32-bit applications on the 64-bit operating system. Follow these steps:
  1. Copy the entire contents of the installation disk to a folder on the hard drive.
  2. In the root of this folder, locate the Setup.ini file and open it with Microsoft® Notepad.
  3. Under [SETUP], modify the line below as follows:

    Old line:  x64_IMAGE_PATH=x64
    New line:  x64_IMAGE_PATH=x86
  4. Save and close the Setup.ini file.
  5. In the root of this folder, run the Setup.exe file.
Note: The following is a known feature limitation of AutoCAD® Map 3D 2009 on 64-bit operating systems:
  • The Map Image Insert command (MAPIINSERT) does not work.
