I've been running Autocad 14 in Windows 98, XP, and 7, but have not been able to run it in Windows 8. Has there been any luck with anyone able to find a way to run Autocad 14 in Windows 8?

AutoCAD R14 works in Windows 8 but you need to apply a compatibility setting to the main executable file or launcher when you're installing. Run it as administrator and set the compatibility to Windows XP or Windows 7. Windows 7 is not recommended, though. If you can't make it run , install a virtual machine using Virtualbox or VMWare with Windows XP attached and then you can use your application.
