On one computer, I used to type "m" for move and "sc" for scale and it would work. I've recently been using another PC and it will not accept these commands. I have to type "move" and "scale". Anyone know how I can get it back to just using "m" and "sc". There's probably other commands that are behaving in this fashion but these are the only two I have tried. Thanks.
I took one from another PC that works but I still have the issue. I'm assuming you're talking about the acad.pgp in c:\program files\autodesk\mdt 2008\acadm\ ?
Copy the whole line above, go to the PC that works, paste in the command line, hit enter key
Whatever path it shows up, is where the ACAD.PGP you should copy to the PC that you want it to work.
Another reason it may not work is because an autolisp has taken over the acad.pgp commands during start-up.
Yes, the one that doesn't work. But you were right, the one that does work is pointing to a network share. I took the file in that share and put it in my directory, but it's still not working. Most likely because my Autocad is also trying to look in that share which has not been mapped in Windows yet (I have no network shares mapped yet). Which of the paths in the options is the one I want so I can repoint it to my own directory on my hard drive?
Likely you don't have to map to any folder because SUPPORT folder is the main one and I don't think anybody would remove its path.
Copy the ACAD.PGP to your SUPPORT Folder.
