Autodesk Civil 3D 2007- ADMS 2008 Support Patch

In a continuing effort to provide high quality products, Autodesk has released the Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 - ADMS 2008 support patch. Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 includes the Autodesk Data Management Server (ADMS) 5 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 includes the ADMS 2008 version. The ADMS 5 and the ADMS 2008 cannot be installed side-by-side on the same machine. This support patch will allow you to connect to the ADMS 2008 from Autodesk Civil 3D 2007 (with Service Pack 3 installed), allowing you to upgrade to the new version of the server independent from your upgrade to Civil 3D 2008. However, applying this support patch does not allow you to use AutoCAD Civil 3D 2008 drawings with ADMS 5.

This Readme contains information regarding the installation and use of this support patch. It is strongly recommended that you read this entire document before you apply the support patch to your product. For your reference, you should save this Readme to your hard drive or print a copy.
