If you use EZScript-PRO on AutoCAD 2010, simply put the command RIBBON at the beginning of your scripts.
You can also put this ion the ACAD.lsp file.
This will always make sure that the ribbon does not 'dissapear' when a script is run from the command line.
Read this Lisp Routine Topic and thought if we could add Bind Xrefs and Explode to the mix that this could be powerful. But do we even have to open the drawing?
Have it run the lisp Routine; Bind Insert Xrefs, Explode, Purge All, Zoom Extents, then Save
Any Help on this topic

Refering to scottbolton's solution (message 7): This is a great tool. However I think if we could add 1 more function it would make it a super tool. Currently running this only opens and zooms to extents either the model or layout space the dwg was last saved in. I have dwgs that have multiple layouts that are saved wherever the last person who saved it was working at. If this could go to all of a dwgs layouts and model space to zoom extents it would be amazing!!!! Here is an individual dwg lsp I found for what I am describing. If there is a way we could combine the two it would be golden.
