Get short-cuts - open

279 Views, 4 Replies

Hello Forum,

 

if you use AutoCAD's command "open", on the left side there are short-cuts. I want to retreive the names and paths of those shortcuts. How do I get them? I know they are in the registry, but the registry path is quite complicated and I fear the path will be different for other systems with other AutoCAD versions. Or is there some kind of logic to such a registry path of AutoCAD?

 

Thank you.

Ty for your reply.

 

the registry key that contains the shortcuts in 'OPEN' looks something like this for AutoCAD2009:

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R17.2\ACAD-7005:409\Profiles\<<Profile>>\Dialogs\AllAnavDialogs

 R17.2 means it is AutoCAD2009, which you can get with the code you suggested. But what does "ACAD-7005:409" stand for?

Try this one

Dim appver As Object = TryCast(My.Computer.Registry.GetValue("HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD", "CurVer", Nothing), Object)
        If appver IsNot Nothing Then
            MsgBox("you have " + "Autocad.Application." + appver.ToString() + " installed")
        Else
            MsgBox("Out of luck, sorry, use your old code instead")
        End If
