Hi Guys,

 

Our IT recently upgraded me to a new laptop.  They loaded it with AutoCAD Mechanical 2007, AutoCAD Electrical 2007, and Inventor 11.  AutoCAD Mechanical seems to work fine, but AutoCAD Electrical produces the error

Command:
; error: bad argument type: streamp nil
Command:  ; error: An error has occurred inside the *error* functionbad
argument type: streamp nil
Command:

whenever I select an Electrical function.  All other regular AutoCAD functions work fine while in Electrical.

 

I do notice that when AutoCAD Electrical first launches that the Electrical Menu Utilities do not load. It displays the error

AutoCAD Electrical menu utilities ; error: bad argument type: streamp nil

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Try to check if your current workspace has been set after launching, it should be set to ACADE&2D Drafting & Annotation as default. If not, manually set it.

Second suggestion is to check if acade.cuix file is loaded or not.

 

Thanks,
