I am using Autocad 2008 w/ SP1. I tried to run the Scale List Cleanup Utility downloaded from the Autodesk website. I got this error message when I ran it: "This application has failed to start because acdb17.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I tried to re-install and it did not help. Why am I getting this message and how can I fix it?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Is the cleanup utility EXE in the correct folder? I recall it needs to be in a specific folder, same as the AutoCAD EXE file I think (it's been a while...).
Thank you for your reply.
I tried what you suggested but could not find the acdb17.dll fileon my computer. in fact that is the error report I receive when trying to rund cleanupscales. I found an acdb17.dll file on the AutoCAD website at
However, this seems to be for AutoCAD 2007. Do you know if I can use it for AutoCAD 18?
why do you need this utility?
Start command _-SCALELISTEDIT and then option _RESET and that's it .... or am I missing something?
