   used for spooling of jobs and creation of ports. 
    This can be any driver however a tcp/ip port should be used. 
    Other port types might produce unusual results and are therefore 
    not supported.
2) Remove all previous versions of the RP-GL/2 HDI Printer Driver. 
Note: This includes previous versions of RP-GL/2 HDI Printer Drivers 
for other versions of AutoCAD.

   system.

-1 Start -> Settings -> Control Panel

Note: This will only be visible if AutoCAD has already been installed.

    click Next.
