How do I print a message in AutoCAD 2005 without Autodesk.AutoCAD.EditorInput?

Hello again...sigh,

I'm using AutoCAD 2005, so when I add acdbmgd and acmgd to my C# solution as
references, I cannot use:

using Autodesk.AutoCAD.EditorInput;

As a result, I can't use the WriteMessage method for printing a message in
AutoCAD. How can I do it using AutoCAD 2005?

Sorry to ask so many questions. Maybe I'm totally off track here...

Search the ObjectARX discussion Group for a post by Jim Awe containing
MgdDbg which had classes for AC2005 Net interface.

.. sorry, don't have a link ..

WriteMessage is new in AutoCAD 2006. There was another way of doing this in
AutoCAD 2005. Something like CommandPrompt.Message or similar. BTW, if you
are new to AutoCAD I recommend that you use the COM interop assemblies
first. They are easier to use although in some scenarios they are somewhat
slower.

In case anyone is ever interested...

Autodesk.AutoCAD.ApplicationServices.CommandLinePrompts.Message("My
String");

Thanks again for your comments.
