Slideshow Script

I am trying to create a slideshow in AutoCAD 2011, where each slide in my slideshow represents a week during a project. I am trying to follow the procedure noted in the online help section for writing a script to initiate the slideshow within AutoCAD. I created the slides as described in the online help manual (each slide is titled SLIDE#), and copied and pasted the folliwng from the online help manual in order to get the script to run:


; Begin slide show, load SLIDE1


; Preload SLIDE2


; Let audience view SLIDE1

DELAY 2000

; Display SLIDE2


; Preload SLIDE3


; Let audience view SLIDE2

DELAY 2000

; Display SLIDE3


; Let audience view SLIDE3

DELAY 3000

; Cycle



I then amended the script above to include the entirety of my slide library for my slideshow (total of 47 slides), and ran the script in AutoCAD. When I executed the SCRIPT command in AutoCAD, a slide (week) was being skipped during the slideshow. Even using the example script in the help section skips a week in my slideshow.


Does anyone know why this would be? I am attaching the script that I created for my slideshow.

To amend my original post the slideshow will show slide1, slide3, slide5 instead of slide1, slide2, slide3, etc., in order.
