Being Prompted to Open the “Install” Drawing on Every Drawing

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

If you are being prompted by Design Master to open the “Install” drawing every time you open a drawing, you have accidentally set one of the installation VLX or DES files to load each time you run AutoCAD or BricsCAD.

AutoCAD Solution

To fix this problem in AutoCAD:

  1. Type APPLOAD at the command line.
  2. Press the Contents button in the Startup Suite area of the Load/Unload Applications dialog box.
  3. Remove any files from the list related to Design Master. It is typically one of these files causing the problem:
    • hvac-loadInAutoCAD.vlx
    • elec-loadInAutoCAD.vlx
    • plumb-loadInAutoCAD.vlx

BricsCAD Solution

To fix this problem in BricsCAD:

  1. Type APPLOAD at the command line.
  2. In the Load Application Files dialog box, look for one or more of these files:
    • hvac-loadInAutoCAD.des
    • elec-loadInAutoCAD.des
    • plumb-loadInAutoCAD.des
  3. For each of the above files, uncheck the AutoLoad setting.
