Autolisp Routines not staying active

182 Views, 3 Replies

We have been upgrading our company computers to Inventor 2010 and with that comes autocad. Some of our users are not ready to change over to Inventor and are still using the autocad. The problem is we can not figure out why the lisp routines will not stay active from file to file or when you close down the program and restart the program. We have never had this problem before. Any ideas?

 

I currently have to do the following steps every time I open a file:

Tools

Load Application

Select the Files

And click Load

 

I have to do this every time I open a file.

 

This is getting really old.

Any help is greatly appreciated!!!!

Thanks,

Mike

Appload, add the lisp to startup suite.

Hi,

>> or when you close down the program and restart the program. We have never had this problem before. Any ideas?

Yes there are ideas ... so much ... but there is not so much info given. :smileywink:

What LISP-files are these? Self written or from a developer?

How are the functions from the LISPs startet? Via menu-buttons or per command-typing?

What message do you get when you start such a function?

 

Very interesting is your info "lisp routines will not stay active" ... does that mean you can start functions of the lisp and one minute later (without closing the drawing or AutoCAD) the functions gives error-messages?

 

additional some words for feeding GOOGLE:

- ACAD.LSP ..... within this file startup-definition are placed, for example what LISPs should be loaded with AutoCAD

- ACADDOC.LSP  .... here is defined, what LISPs should be loaded with every DWG-open

- MNL-files .... parallel to menu-files placed, also for loading functions or LISPs

- _APPLOAD ... command to define tools to be automatically loaded

 

HTH, - alfred -
