I am trying to open a drawing from the command line,
i have FILEDIA = 0, CMDDIA = 0. after typing OPEN or
using OPEN in a script the dialog box opens using AECOPEN.
SAVE works fine this way, but not open.
I have run out of ideas on how to open a file without that dialog box
Thanks for any help.
Make sure the LayerManager palette is closed, and possibly also the Properties palette, otherwise you will likely get into a circular Unhandled Exception issue and need to end the task in Task manager.
Use the ".OPEN" command. Note the period preceding OPEN....this tells it to use the Origianl command, not the one used to redefine it by LDT.
