Add or Remove Features

You can add or remove AutoCAD features at any time. For example, you may have chosen a Custom installation option when you first installed AutoCAD, but now you want to add features that you did not install originally. Or you may no longer need to use all of the features that were installed originally. You can add or remove features by using the Add or Remove Programs dialog box.

To add or remove features

  1. In the Control Panel (Windows), double-click Add or Remove Programs.
  2. In the Add or Remove Programs dialog box, click AutoCAD 2008, and then click Change/Remove.

    The AutoCAD Installation Wizard re-opens in Maintenance Mode.

  3. Click Add or Remove Features.
  4. On the Add/Remove Features page, select a feature to install or uninstall. The icons to the left of the selections give you an indication of the action that will be taken.

    - indicates a currently installed feature or a feature that was you want to add.

    - indicates an originally installed feature that is chosen for removal.

    NoteIf you need to revert to the AutoCAD features that you selected in your original installation, click Cancel.
