ArcGIS for AutoCAD and version 2014

The last time I went to the hardware store I saw two different sets of twins, and the night before twins at our basketball camp. 

AutoCAD historically makes major changes to AutoCAD every three years.  You will notice that applications like ArcGIS for AutoCAD list support for AutoCAD in spans of three years also.  The latest version of ArcGIS for AutoCAD 300 Sp1 includes two of those three year spans namely 2010-2012 and 2013-?.  Since 2014 wasn't released when this newest version was built it is not listed explicitly as supported. I use ArcGIS for AutoCAD on 64bit AutoCAD 2014.

How did you get it to work? I just tried using it on 2014 and it errored out.

If you have both versions on the same system the desktop launcher will try to launch the last version of AutoCAD that you used. You will need to download and install the correct 32bit or 64bit AutoCAD 2013 then launch your AutoCAD 2014. From then on it should just work. There is also a chance the first time you try to add a Esri Map you'll get some ugly error... just ignore it and try again, then everything just works.

so how do you find it after it loads? I load it with a .lsp file and it says loaded but there is no splash screen and i cant find it on the toolbar at the top?

Using .LSP to NETLOAD the application is certainly a fine way to do it. If you are running 64bit AutoCAD 2010-2012 you may need to get a patch to see the menu. Contact me directly and I can see that you get it. Otherwise be sure that you have downloaded and installed the correct version for the combination of your operating system and version of AutoCAD. Hope that helps.
