i have architectural desktop 2007 installed with windows 7 and i have the same problem
my taskbar and sdi are set to "0"
in windows 7 explorer does not have "tools" or at least i cant fnd it
i found my folders options but when i pick what program to open dwg files i only see autocad.exe
where do i find the autocad launcher? what is the file name?
thank you for your help!
hi, thanks for the help!
the directory acshellex does not exist and the file aclauncher.exe does not exist on my computer?
i even looked in my old 2006 disk since the double click worked there but i couldnt find aclauncher on the cd either?
i was reading another post talking about how the only way to edit dde in the registry and how they control how file types open in windows 7 is with an application called "file type doctor"???
ive read a couple of different methods on how to fix this but i dont seem to have those tabs, directories or files? is this a windows 7 thing? or because im running autocad in "administrator mode" since its got compatability issues with windows 7?
for your help!
Here's my question...... Why?..... I think the launcher only appeared once I installed Trueview but I could be wrong... But why does the "AUTOCAD Application" not work.. Now you have to Check SDI, Taskbar and mess with Windows folders options and the associated launcher applications, Before u just ran Single or multiple dwg mode... I thought it was supposed to get easier with upgrades... and to add to it all SDI is not in the user documentation or in the System variables. I remembered it from a while back but could not remember the name... Aggggh very annoying... Sorry had to go on a rant.
For me, I had to go to Control Panel: Programs: Default Programs: Set Associations, and then I scrolled down to dwg, selected it and hit 'Change program...' at the top. Evidently when I installed the Inventor trial version on my computer it changed my setting from AutoCAD DWG Launcher to AutoCAD Application, so I changed it back. That's it!
