Virtual memory monitor gadget for AutoCAD

Autodesk releases its first Windows gadget.

Use the Autodesk Performance Monitor to gauge the virtual memory utilized by running versions of AutoCAD and AutoCAD-based vertical products.

The Performance Monitor is a Windows desktop gadget that provides a color-coded status bar indicating the level of usage of virtual memory by AutoCAD products (AutoCAD 2009-2011 and some verticals). When large amounts of virtual memory are in use, the running process may become unstable.

For obvious reasons this will only work on Vista and Windows 7 systems.

Free Download of Performance Monitor for AutoCAD via Autodesk Labs (in a limited number of countries)

Test comments:

The location after installing the gadget was half way outside the screen.

Using the Close drawing button did close the drawing but put AutoCAD in a Not Responding state.
