Autocad Profile Problem

142 Views, 4 Replies

I was trying to create a profile and while doing this i think that the profile got corrupted. Now, I open AutoCAD and it goes to a white screen and it hangs there. I can close it but I do not have any options so I can change the profile back to the default AutoCAD profile. How can I have AutoCAD open again??

Try running AutoCAD from the OS command line and supply the /p switch and name the profile you want to load with.

On a similar note, create a desktop icon that uses the /p switch that points to a profile that does not exist (i.e. /p blah). AutoCAD will complain in a dialog box that the profile does not exist. Just hit the OK button and AutoCAD will build it with default settings. Then you can delete your corrupted profile and recreate it. Then delete the unnecessary profile.
