The Drawing Cleanup Utility was first made available for AutoCAD 2008 and AutoCAD 2008-based applications. People wanted to use it with AutoCAD 2007. So the Drawing Cleanup Utility was updated to also support AutoCAD 2007 and AutoCAD 2007-based applications.
Our most recent feedback is that you want it to work in side by side installations. Though the setup_2008.exe or setup_2007.exe only allow one install of the utility, Technical Consulting Manager, Chris Nailer, reports that there is an easy workaround. You can install it for AutoCAD 2008 and then use netload to use it for AutoCAD 2007.
- Issue command: netload
- Navigate to and open <InstallDir>
is by default: c:\program files\Autodesk\Drawing Cleanup Utility
- Issue command: labsload
- Use the utility as specified in the user guide.
The Drawing Cleanup Utility will run from now through November 30, 2007. Keeping up with customer feedback is alive in the lab.
