I need to create autcadfiles form a server where autocad is not installed, only the has dlls like 'acmgd.dll' and 'acdbmgd.dll', the dlls are from autocad 2006.
The language I use is .Net C#.
Because we have different versions of autocad I need to be able to save the document to different versions.
Is there anyone who can help me?

How do you have files like acmgd.dll and acdbmgd.dll when "AutoCAD is not
installed"? Read your EULA: you're not allowed to copy the files to another
machine (except for backup purposes).

I think you can use a "headless" (no UI) AutoCAD through COM automatation,
but that's probalby not going to be very efficient on a server. The only
Autodesk-supported method to manipulate DWG files w/o AutoCAD is by using
RealDWG.

Well, you have to have AutoCAD - either the RealDWG package or access to
AutoCAD somewhere. If the latter, you can do something like setup a
dedicated workstation that either monitors a queue for "drawing creation
requests" or try to control it through DCOM.
