I don't doubt that I could, if I could find the installation software.

The program is a freeware AutoCAD work-alike. I installed it, and thought nothing of it. I use it for my model railroad projects. It was too good, though. The developer was bought out, and now it's a commercial product. Nobody else seems to have archived the installation software, either.

The problem is reinstallation. I've looked at current alternatives, and they are all lacking. Most are limited to 2D. Few maintain AutoCAD's command line interface.

Lesson learned - if free software is too good to be true, archive the installation software :-).
