    Exclamation Navisworks Manage 2010 vs. AutoCAD 2008

    This is a heads-up to the folks here that installing Navisworks Manage 2010 appears to hose AutoCAD 2008's VBA support.

    Once I installed Navisworks my VBA code started returning errors on any layout's Block object. Uninstalling Navisworks restores AutoCAD's VBA support.

    Note that this issue does not occur with AutoCAD 2010. I have an active support case open with Autodesk.

    Symptom in AutoCAD:

    Running the following code in AutoCAD will result in an error once the code gets to For Each aObj statement.

    Code:
    Sub Test()
      Dim aLayout As AcadLayout
      For Each aLayout In ThisDrawing.Layouts
        Dim aBlock As AcadBlock
        Set aBlock = aLayout.Block
        Debug.Print aBlock.Name & ": " & CStr(aBlock.Count)
        Dim aObj As AcadObject
        For Each aObj In aLayout.Block
          Debug.Print aObj.ObjectName
        Next aObj
      Next aLayout
    End Sub

    Oh joy - that means another program to roll out. Although at this point it might be worth waiting around for the 2011 release...

    Some say beauty is in the eye of the Beholder... perhaps so, but I've only seen the disintegration beam.
