Help please. I need to click on a toolbar button, which brings up a 'Load' explorer window. The file type I need to load is an .arx file.
(FYI, when loaded, this .arx file adds a tab to the autocad window tray, which when clicked, brings up another window. This final window is a calculations 'spreadsheet' that counts and dimensions the rectangles I have already drawn.)
A normal Load window only allows dwg files or similar to be opened. So how do I open a window that allows me to search All file types, and therefore locate this .arx file, to load it?
It use to happen with no problem but since i recently had to reinstall AutoCad 2007 Lite after a software problem, this command is no longer in the system, and the guy who programmed it is no longer around.
Bit of a macro novice here, so go easy!
In order to load arx-file into AutoCAD you can use one of next method:
1. Command _ARX with options _LOAD
2. Command _APPLOAD
3. Lisp-function (arxload "path-to-arx-file" ["error message"])
I've tried entering those commands in the command bar but it doesnt recognise them.
When I customise the toolbar button that I've set up, I need to put the macro command in after the <^C^C^_> What is the command that tells it to open an explorer/load window, which includes the option to open all file types (including .arx files)?
Im using Autocad Lite 2007, and have been loading this ARX file for years until I had to reinstall the program.
Previously, when it worked, I clicked the icon, and up popped a window (like an explorer window) that enabled me to search for the arx file, open/load it, and that created the extra tab on the autocad tray at the bottom of the screen. Its the code that made that window pop up that is now missing.
Neither of those codes worked. Maybe its not a "load this arx file" code that I need, but a "Pop up an explorer window to search for all filetypes" code.

It is unsupported and prohibited Autodesk hack. IMHO this is not a place where you can discuss it.
