REVCLOUD Doesn't Work

416 Views, 4 Replies

REVCLOUD has stopped working on my AutoCAD Electrical 2012 installation. It also does not work when I launch without Electrical. When I click on REVCLOUD, I get "Autoload Failed". If I run APPLOAD or add it to the Startup Suite, I get "ACET-ERROR-INIT" when I try to use REVCLOUD. I have verified that the EXPRESS folder (the location of REVCLOUD.lsp) is in my Working Support File Search Path. I do have a custom menu from a customer loaded, but I'm not sure if that's when this problem began or not. I have also tried running a repair installation, which indicated it was successful, but did not correct the problem. Any suggestions?

I dont believe you need Expresstools to run Revcloud anymore.  It's an internal autocad command.  Type .Revcloud (with the period at the front of the command) and it should work.  If it does, then you need to have whomever does your setup of Lisps and shortcuts examine what is overwritting the internal command.

Thanks for the tip, but that didn't work either. I still get "Autoload Failed".

The error message is specific to ExpressTools normally: since this is a core command, did you by chance "migrate" from an older AutoCAD version when you installed 2012? Or did you try and force-install an old Express Tools package?


What is DEMANDLOAD set to?

DEMANDLOAD is set to "3" (but Autoload fails regardless of setting). I did not migrate from an older version; this was a new installation of AutoCAD Electrical 2012. I may however, have previously had AutoCAD LT 2004 and/or a third-party CAD package installed, but if I did, I unistalled them before installing 2012. I have a fairly-new hard drive, so I don't recall whether these packages were installed on them or not. I do know that this is not a problem for others who had previously had LT 2004 installed.
