Hotfix for users IE7 and Autodesk Design Review 2007 or Autodesk DWF Viewer 7.0

Since IE7 beta and the recent IE7 final release I was a bit worried that it took so long but here it is. See this post on Beyond the Paper blog or at Autodesk support site. "Autodesk has a Hotfix for Autodesk Design Review 2007 and Autodesk DWF Viewer 7.0 that addresses compatibility issues with Microsoft Internet Explorer 7."

Hotfix for AutoCAD 2007-based products - Closing Drawings

Been quite busy lately so I just installed this Hotfix - Closing Drawings - AutoCAD® 2007-based products may crash when closing drawings. This problem can also manifest itself while saving or plotting drawings.

JTB FlexReport is their solution to have better control on their network licenses based on the FLEXlm or FLEXnet technology. E.g. details on what users are using the product most or least can be reported on as well as graphical reports as seen below. This is done for applications like ARM, Rational Rose, SoldWorks, AutoCAD, MagiCAD, Novapoint, Mathcad, ProE, Matlab, ESRI ArcGIS, Intergraph GeoMedia, SpeechWorks and others.

JTB FlexReport has support for consolidating several version of one application. If you have Autodesk subscription you are allowed to have for example AutoCAD 2007, AutoCAD 2006 and AutoCAD 2005 available for the users as long as you don't use more licenses as you have subscription for. JTB FlexReport can group these licenses together in one graph.

(Code Search)

I tried the new Google Code Search and it looks promising including support for regular expressions. But it seems to not find things as I wish it would find.

Google Code Search

Does the code really need to be in an archive like zip?

Take a look at this search for some code I have in an AutoLISP file:

http://www.google.com/codesearch?hl=en&lr=&q=%5C%28vlax-ename-%3Evla-object+area&btnG=Search

It finds one in a newsgroup that is zipped. Why could it not find this file I wonder that is not zipped:

Another wish is that it could find code snippets on web sites and blogs.

Architectural Desktop 2007 Service Pack 1 released

ADT 2007 SP1 was made available for some days ago and I recommend to download the readme and see if it make sense for you to install it. It includes the AutoCAD 2007 SP1 as well so there is a lot of reasons why you should install it.
...improving upon a number of features within the product, some of which include, Construction Lines, Doors,Inserting DXF Files, Multi-View Blocks, Project Management, Properties Palette, Reference Keynote Legend, Roof Slabs, Spaces, Stairs, Style Manager, Tool Palettes, Windows while also addressing early customer feedback.

Performance is also improved in some areas. Project-based callouts will no longer make plot preview that slow. File open time has also been somewhat improved. This is true if FIELDEVAL is set to update when plotting or opening. The use of Project Standards will no longer have a significant effect on file open time.

Notice also the hotfixes:

Hotfix - Plotting to Raster Files Performance Improvement

Hotfix - Regenerating Drawings Containing Text
