Error While opening autocad using process.start

 

Error:

 

 

Activation context generation failed for "E:\SI\ProArc\Main\Source\Engineering Client\Source\AutoCAD 2012\SI.Integrations.Engg.AutoCAD2012\AutoCAD 2012 - English\acad.exe". Dependent Assembly PPClientAssembly,processorArchitecture="x86",type="x64",version="2008.1.17012.4817" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

 

Please help me on this issue

 

Regards,

Raman

It looks to me like you are trying to start the Acad.exe from a location other than where it was installed. I think you should be starting this from the AutoCAD subdirectory in  C:\Program Files\Autodesk unless you have installed this in some other location.

Please post your code on how you are doing the process.start. 

 

Any reason why you would use this method to start AutoCAD?
