When I see an error like this, I look at any lsp (vlx) I have made that is being loaded either at the beginning of a session or during. I have made an error in entering code and this error comes up. Make a note of when this error happens and look at any lsp routines you have done that may be loading just before you get that error. This usually helps and after digging into it, I find the error, change it and no more "Malformed string on input" error. Just a thought.

Hi KOBI1912,


Refer to your Issue No. 2, we've had the same problem with the catalouge DB, Autodesk is aware of this bug and we were told that will be in the next hotfix or sp1.


Hope this helps. :smileyhappy:
