    Exclamation Unable to open regular AutoCAD 2007 from Mechanical 2007

    We all have Autodesk Mechanical 2007, but most of us use the regular AutoCAD 2007 installed along with it. However, one of my group can not get the regular version of AutoCAD 2007 to open on their machine. I assume there is a setting somewhere that is affecting this, so any of the Mechanical users out there have any ideas as to what it is?

    It sounds like a profile issue. Does a profile for AutoCAD only exist? You could export a profile from one of the other computers where it works to the computers where it does not. You could then create a shortcut to load AutoCAD Mechanical as AutoCAD by specifying the profile to use with the /p switch.
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    Look for a profile called <<VANILLA>>, that should do it.
