It is always a question that is very difficult to answer yet one asked by many: does application xyz work with progeCAD. All we can say without the package in front of us is probably yes, yet most likely no. What I mean by that is that the application itself is most likely written with one of the api's we support, such as AutoLISP or SDS (our form of ADS). It is a given we can't run the ARX software yet but that is coming, and if the company which develops the software in question has heard of, and has made the necessary changes to their install routine, then the software can be installed and will run. That is usually the problem, these installers all look for acad.exe and use that information in their install process. However our software is has the name icad.exe which most installers don't see and the result is that they can not be installed. It is usually a simple task of renaming that file and perhaps some others to get the product to install but without official help from the developers of said software we can not tell if the software will completely work or not.
