Please help. The acadlt.pgp of my AutoCad LT 2013 is missing. It was working perfectly fine until yesterday. When I about to use the AutoCad again today, I could'nt use the shortcut commands / aliases anymore. I already search for by the AutoCAD program by following the guidelines and even searching it manually, still I could not find it so that I can edit the acadlt.pgp. Please help. Thanks

Run a repair, or search your original install media for it.

The english version for a 64bit install is located here:

D:\x64\en-US\acadlt\Aclt\Program Files\Root\UserDataCache\en-us\Support

All support files are under your Windows Profile, most likely hidden folders, probably why you cannot find it.

 

In LT2013, at the commadline, type PLOTTERMANAGER. When Windows Explorer opens up as a result of typing that command, go up ONE folder until you are in the ENU folder, then open the SUPPORT folder and that is where your PGP resides in that session of AutoCAD LT.

 

If none is there, AutoCAD/LT stores spare copies in the folder:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD LT 2013 - English\UserDataCache\Support

 

Just copy what you need over (don't move it).

How convienient... I recently just did a post about how to show hidden files. This will allow you to navigate to one of your support paths...

http://autocadtips.wordpress.com/2012/12/10/how-to-show-hidden-folders/

 

If the goal is to navigate to the support path that is inside of the "AppData" folder, here's how:

Shown below is the user name folder with hidden folder not being shown. ( My user name on my computer is "Trog" yours will be something different...)

Support Path 1.JPG

 

While you are in this folder, simply press the ALT button,

You should now see some buttons appear along the top of Windows Explorer

  • Click "Tools"
  • Click "Folder Options..."

Support Path 2.jpg

 

Click the View tab to make it current

In the list, scroll down and check the toggle next to "Show hidden files, folders, and drives"

Also - while you are in this dialog, you might as well make sure that the display of file extensions is turned on... (shown below)

Support Path 3.JPG

 

After you close that window, you should now see the AppData folder kind of faded. The faded folders are "hidden" folders that you can now browse to.

You can also navigate to the AppData folder by clicking the Windows start button and then type %appdata% into the search prompt

Support Path 4.JPG

 

Shown below is the overall AutoCAD support folder path that is shown on my computer.

Your acad.pgp should be in here...
