The M-Color product line is a landmark tool that has been used by countless companies and has produced a lot of value for their customers over the years. However, M-Files‘ focus has shifted from the world of AutoCAD and architecture to the document management needs of businesses around the world. With this shift, both the financial resources and effort needed to maintain and support M-Color no longer meet the requirements they have set for themselves and they must focus their efforts on their core business.
The decision to sunset M-Color was not easy, but M-Files feel at this juncture, it is the right one. On behalf of M-Files and Microsol Resources, we wish to thank you for all your efforts and hard work with the product to achieve all the success it has had over the years.
This announcement affects the entire M-Color product line.
Effective immediately, M-Files will no longer sell new licenses or support renewals of M-Color. We understand that there are a substantial number of customers still using M-Color, and we do not wish to leave them without a transition period. Therefore, M-Files has produced one more version of M-Color for the AutoCAD 2023 release.
This final version of M-Color does not require a license code to run. This will allow our customers to keep using M-Color while they adjust their business for the change.
M-Files will respect all existing support contracts by continuing to provide technical support until the end of the current contract term. However, we will not accept renewal orders for the contracts for subsequent terms. If you have any questions on ongoing support contracts, please contact M-Color support.
The end of support for M-Color at M-Files does not necessarily mean the end of the product. Should a suitable partner be found to continue the development of the M-Color application, we are open to transferring the rights to the source code and thus enabling the current and possible future customers to continue using the product with future versions of AutoCAD as well.
The following version does not require a license to run:
AutoCAD Web allows users to access AutoCAD score commands and fundamental drafting capabilities on the web. It is a cloud-based solution for CAD, which allows you to view, edit, create and share drawing from your browser or mobile device without the need to install software on your computer.
Don’t forget, the AutoCAD web and mobile apps are part of your AutoCAD subscription entitlement!
Currently, access to the full features of AutoCAD on mobile is available through the subscription to the Premium or Ultimate tiers of the AutoCAD mobile app which also comes as an entitlement to AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT.
Access to AutoCAD on the web is similarly available with the subscription to AutoCAD or to AutoCAD LT but is also available through the web app program. For $100 yearly, AutoCAD Web makes it easier than ever to work anytime, everywhere on any device.
Autodesk launched the AutoCAD web program in July of 2020 to help customers adjust to the changing pandemic work situation by providing free access to the features of the AutoCAD web app. As we have all adjusted to the new normal, the web app program has concluded, and AutoCAD web is in its place. As a result, the new AutoCAD portfolio will consist of AutoCAD Web, AutoCAD, and AutoCAD LT. Access to AutoCAD one web and mobile will now be available as part of a subscription to AutoCAD Web. or as an entitlement under AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT.
AutoCAD Web provides additional functionality beyond what is available in DWG true view and other free Autodesk DWG viewers. For automation, customization, and best-in-class 2D drafting and design, AutoCAD LT remains the offer with the most features and capabilities.
The AutoCAD web app is supported by the following browsers on Windows or Mac:
For the best performance, it is recommended to use the latest version. Minimum processor: Intel® Celeron® CPU N3160 @ 1.60GH
Note: AutoCAD isn’t currently supported if you are using Firefox with private browsing. Firefox with private browsing prevents the use of service workers, a technology that is needed to internally communicate between the AutoCAD engine and the AutoCAD user interface. If you wish to use private browsing, you can use Google Chrome in Incognito mode.
