Thanks guys, yes and yes. The V19 platinum disk is not recognized on my new HP 8.1 laptop. I tried to do the manual auto-play, etc but can't get the system to see anything. I put the disk in my win7 desktop and it sees it and is ready to go.
After my aborted attempt at V19 install I went and put my 15 pro (build 24.5- is that 15.2?) on the new laptop and got the 'file corrupted' errors when saving as dxf. I uninstalled and am at a loss now
Thx for all the responses,
