Solved! Go to Solution.
The link provided there does contain the information you need, but basically what you have there looks fine to me, except you need one more key "MANAGED" = 1 DWORD
After adding "MANAGED" dword with value of 1.
It is working very fine.
Thanks for the through the interface link on this topic.
I have not installed 2011 yet, since none of my users have, but I can't imagine the functionality is gone. I certainly didn't here anything about the method for Demand Loading changing.
If you are certain you are looking in the right place
\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R18.1\ACAD-9001:409\ (the 9001:409 part is different for the verticals, and/or languages)
and you don't see Applications there, I would try adding it yourself.
I just perused through all the comments on Kean's old post, and one person specifically asked if there was a difference in 2011. This was keans reply:
The Registry key AutoCAD looks under has changed from R18.0 to R18.1. Otherwise everything is the same, and should work similarly.
That said, there was one other comment that might apply, that is to make sure you have Copy Local set to false for acmgd.dll and acdbmgd.dll. (I tend to set it to false for all AutoCAD references)
I looked thru Kean's post also and found the post you refered to. However, he does not give the name of the new registry key. I found a key named "AutodeskApps" under R18.1 and added the entries there but still no autoload.
I suppose he wasn't explicit, but I'm pretty sure he just meant that the version part (R18.1\ACAD-9001:409) had changed to reflect the new version info. I don't think he meant they changed anything else about the path.
The AutodeskApps key you mention is present in 2010 and earlier, and the information I see there is not the same structure as the demand loading keys.
I am assuming through all of this, that your .dll functions as expected when you Netload it?
From the comments on the TTIF post, I see that you can NOT have the demand loading entries in both HKEY_CURRENT_USER and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, you haven't done that have you?
