AcCoreConsole + Read-Only Drawing

280 Views, 1 Replies

I'm trying to use AcCoreConsole to open a drawing for processing.  I do not know ahead of time if the drawing is in a read-only state.  When opening a read-only drawing, AcCoreConsole will ask if I want to open the drawing read-only, but this breaks my code execution because AcCoreConsole doesn't execute the provided script until an answer has been provided.  Is there a command switch that will allow me to bypass the read-only question, or specify that the drawing should be opened read-only?

Sorry, This is a known behavior and has been already been logged in our system.


As a workaround, you can create a batch file that first checks the drawing file attributes and makes it write enabled and then invokes the accoreconsole.


Hope this helps.
