AutoLISP without AutoCAD with ZWCAD 2008

ZWCAD 2008 Beta is now available. ZWCAD 2008 supports 80% of the Visual lisp functions. For more news see What’s new in ZWCAD 2008.

I could get some basic programs running like accdist.lsp but hatchb.lsp didn't work. I also got a complete crash when using vl-file-copy but this is beta and things like that can happen.

Below I've tried to open one of the sample drawings from AutoCAD 2008. The compatibility benchmark drawing BUDWEISER2008.DWG could not be opened at all for some reason.

After contacting ZWCAD Software I found out that ZWCAD could not provide the function to decrypt the files that have been encrypted. I removed the password from the drawing and tried again and found that there where some discrepancies. From what I could see in BUDWEISER2008.DWG there where at least 12 tests that failed.

 

Will Autodesk react on this and add some API support for AutoCAD LT?
