View Full Version : IGESOUT Error - cannot find a dll or other file
2006-05-12, 07:31 PM
I get the following error while performing an igesout:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\MDT 2007\igesout.arx cannot find a dll or other file
that it needs.

Please note I have *moved* this thread from the CAD Mgmt. General (http://forums.augi.com/forumdisplay.php?f=119) forum to this one, as I feel this particular forum is a more appropriate place for such a topic.

I have since compared the files that are in 2006 vs my copy of 2007.
Everything seems to match up. The files and locations match.
All the support folders are listed so Acad can find the files.
I have attempted to copy some files from another computer into
my install. Has not fixed the problem.
I am really stumped.
Igesin will work, just not igesout.

With an Inventor MDT subscription, here is a response I received from Autodesk:
Since AutoCAD does not ship with any Iges translator, and the translator is part of the Mechanical Desktop license in your Inventor bundle it cannot be run from AutoCAD. This is different in this release from prior releases.
In order to use the translator you will need to launch either AutoCAD Mechanical or Mechanical Desktop.

I was able to use the iges translator in vanilla AutoCad for the 2006 release.
Is there a way to programatically get the 2007 version to do an iges translation?
Otherwise, I will have to open my copy of 2006 everytime I want to do an igesout.

So I decided to load my current profile into MDT so that I could use
the igesout command in my daily workings.
MDT will not save into earlier versions of AutoCad, ie 2000LT.
Leaves me a compatibility issue with sharing Cad files.
I cannot win. Kudos to Autodesk.
