View Full Version : Globally set-up standard information across AutoCAD installations

Does anyone know what file in the AutoCAD 2005 directory controls the registry settings? I have over 100 computers in our network and need to find the one file that controls all the settings. In Revit it's a *.ini. I want to change one file and apply to several computers in our network. Revit makes it very easy with the *.ini but AutoCAD 2005 doesn't seem to have a clear cut file that controls such settings. I know about the *.arg but I don't want to apply profiles just basic settings. I know that 2005 uses a lot of registry key changes. Any help would be great. Thank you.

There is a lot of data under - C:\Documents and Settings\User-name\Application Data\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2006\R16.2\enu\.......... but, for actual registry settings, I'd suggest you first try exporting a suitable acad profile to a .arg file. This the same as a .reg file and may be applied for any user on any machine.

There is no "one" file that controls all AutoCAD's settings. Perhaps if you told use what you wanted to control we could help you further.

I want to be able to control mapping and user controls. All of our CAD content is located on our server. Our computers are mapped to that drive.

"Mapping" and "user controls"?
Do you mean the AutoCAD support paths? AutoCAD's support paths can be controlled via the ActiveX interface and some code placed in Acad.lsp.
And I have no idea what type of "user controls" you are talking about.

AutoCAD support paths! And user settings.

I'm with John... Export a good profile, place it in a central location, and have everyone import and use that profile.
