XP Desktop Shortcut for ADT2004 - How to configure?

46 Views, 3 Replies

There has been discussion about saving back to R2000 with a
save option. I tried to configure my desktop shortcut to A2004
today but, (unlike other programs), I can not change the
target specification on ADT. Is there any trick to unlocking
the stuff that sets the template and the profile?

I have administrator rights.

I have set up a Shortcut that has the following in the Target

"C:\Program Files\Autodesk Architectural Desktop 2004\acad.exe" /p
"Vanilla"

When you first run it, it will create a profile called Vanilla. This will
cause only the Autocad 2004 to be loaded.

I hope that this helps.

Thanks so much Norman.
In windows 98 I had been used to just copying a shorcut and then modifying
it but that seems not possible in Windows XP.

Regards,
Doug
