How to automatically remove Autodesk 360 icon in AutoCAD 2013 file dialog boxes

AutoCAD 2013 came with the new Autodesk 360 icon showing up in the places list in file dialog boxes like the open or save as drawing dialog boxes. If you as a CAD Manager wants to remove it automatically from a lot of machines it can be done. To manually remove it is easy, just right click on any of the icons in the places list and you can remove, add or restore. If you have a network drive or folder location it is even possible to add it too.

I’ve updated the RemIcons.lsp AutoLISP code so that any of the icons Autodesk 360, Buzzsaw, RedSpark, Point A and FTP can be removed or added. There is also a VBScript sample included. The icons History, Documents, Favorites and Desktop can also be removed but I’ve not included that in the code. A tip is to look in the registry (where R19.0, ACAD-B004:409 and <<Unnamed Profile>> needs to be changed depending on AutoCAD version, vertical and profile): HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R19.0\ACAD-B004:409\Profiles\<<Unnamed Profile>>\Dialogs\AllAnavDialogs

    Jimmy, do you know of a tool that will let you COPY these shortcuts from one app (Say AutoCAD 2012) to another (Say Civil 3D 2013). If you set up some custom shortcuts in one version, it would be nice to easily copy these to another version.
