Applies to: AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, AutoCAD Map, AutoCAD MEP

The current version of the Hardware Certification Database is 18.1.0.2. If the local version of your database is older than the current version, then your database should be updated.

You may need to update your database if:

  • You have new graphics hardware.
  • You have a new driver version for your graphics hardware in the graphics hardware list.
  • The status of your graphics card has changed in the database, e.g., the Status has changed from Supported to Certified.
  • Autodesk or the graphics hardware vendor has resolved issues with your graphics hardware.

Update Instructions

NOTE: You must have administrative privileges and have the user account controls (UAC) disabled on your Microsoft® Windows® operating system to complete the update process.

For AutoCAD® based products:

1. Execute 3DCONFIG command.

2. In the resulting dialog, click on "Check for Updates".

3. If a new version of the graphics card and driver database is available, you will be able to update it.

4. If a newer driver is available and you would like to install it, click on the "Get Download Info" button.

You will be taken to the AutoCAD Certified Hardware List page with all the available drivers for your card displayed.

5. Review the drivers, download the latest certified driver by clicking on the corresponding blue arrow icon.
