Jeff, I have the revit structural suite 2012. Revit, Autocad, 3ds Max, showcase, sketchbook plus design review and dwg trueview. I still have Autocad 2010 too.

Thanks for this.

Note the heading for the middle column has a typo: "Recent Document List found the for selected product" (Say it aloud if you have to.)

Posting an updated version of the program. Thanks to Ralph L., who located the problem with the code not working on some computers. This version should now function correctly for all users.

Jeff,

 

Firstly, thanks for the tool to get rid of the .dst files.

 

Secondly, I get an unhandled exception error when I click on Autocad Raster Design 2013.


After I have started the programme, I get a list of the autocad based applications I have installed.

 

One of the applications listed is Autocad Raster Design 2013. When I click on it I get an unhandled exception error.

 

I have attached the error text.

 

If I click continue your programme continues, Autocad Raster Design 2013 is selected in the autocad based products, with nothing showing in the Recent Document List. If I then click on another autocad product, the recent documents list is populated as expected. If I again click on Autocad Raster Design 2013, I get the same error.

 

 

If this fixed your issue, click on "Accept as Solution"

I suspect that is because Raster Design is not an actual standalone product with its own set of "recent files", even though it shows up in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD.

Thanks, Andrew, for letting me know about this. RK is likely correct, as I don't have ARD to test with with. I'll make adjustments to the code to omit ARD from the list.

Hi Jeff,

I was trying this on a machine running windows 8.1 and I get an Unhandled exception error.

I tried to Continue with no luck. Any Ideas?

 

Update, what it did do was delete my .dwg files, not the .dst files. Sorta the reverse fo what I wanted it to do...

@msanders, thanks for posting that. That's the first time I've seen that error with this program. And you say it removed the drawings from the list but no dst's? I will admit that I have not tested this under Windows 8.1, nor under Mechanical. I will be able to do the 8.1 testing tonight or tomorrow. One thing in your image that makes me wonder if it could be a part of the problem...the file it was on when it threw the exception has a "." in the path. What happens if you select just that one item in the list of DST's?
