Re: changing destination location of lisp routine

I saw your use of setcfg and looked it up on my 2007 help and this is what I found.

I also have the 2009 help and behold, it says the same thing that 2007 shows.

I did find the location of the acad2007.cfg file - Local Settings/Application Data (XP).

Since I never used this function, I did not know the true extent of what it does.

Thanks for clearing it up for me.


I have used vl-registry-write, etc. but to this day these type of programs are still being developed.

Yea, I hear you, DCL coding can easily be 2/3 total code lines in a LSP file...

But one has to realize the answer is the easy part, it is the user input part that is not as easy,

since so many things can go wrong due to improper input, if not careful on the developer's part.


We plot to PDF and DWT. I would have to place interface in a (plot) reactor if I am to develop what

I have shown earlier (but, man, everyone would be "on the same page" over here if I do develop this...).

Reactors are not in the foreseeable future here. I will continue to collect examples found on this board.
