Re: Remove .DST's from Recent Documents list

Jeff -

I would like to add my thanks to you for this tool also.

Unfortuntely, it just defies logic that we even have a need for such tools though. 

Why can't Autodesk just FIX this?

Hi guys,

 

I downloaded and ran the tool on my PC, but when I go to run on another PC it fails to launch and displays a dialogue box saying "AutoCAD Recent Documents Manager has Stopped working - Windows is checking for a solution to the problem...."

 

Has anyone else come across this error? Any suggestions how to get around it?

 

By the way, we are all running the same PC's. Z400's with W7 x64.

I too got this message trying to open the program. I also have Win7/64. If there is a way to open this program I would love to know it. I use the sheet set manager all the time and my list of recently open docs does not have a single dwg on it!!!

Make sure to unblock the zip file before exttqcting the dll by looking at the zip's properties. Also, the dll needs to be run from a local drive, not over the network.

I've unblocked and running locally but with no luck. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

There may be an issue if you have anther Autodesk product installed which has not had any drawing opened yet. I thought I'd addressed that but it may still be an issue. I'm at Autodesk University right now so can't offer much more than that.

Jeff, Indeed I have autodesk products on board that I've never opened. I'll try your suggestion and will post back in the future. Enjoy AU! Thank you. Gary A.

OK, I did make some changes to the code after the one I posted to this thread. I posted it elsewhere and forgot to add it here. So here is the updated program, and should be the one that works even when it encounters uninitailized Autocad programs & profiles.

 

Hopefully this solves the errors reported above.

Jeff - just tried the new tool and an extra message "a problem locating initialized autodesk applications was encountered exiting" comes up before the other message of the program has stopped running. So still no luck for me.

Ok, I will try to track that down when I return from AU. What other autdeak products do you have installed?
