XREFSTATE System Variable
« on: May 22, 2012, 08:17:55 AM »
I was attempting to troubleshoot some performance issues I've been having using process monitor.  I noticed that AutoCAD 2013 is constantly checking for an XREFSTATE System variable, that according to the help documentation is stored in the registry. however, process monitor is reporting this variable as not found.  So that leads me to a couple questions:

why is it constantly checking the status of the variable
why is the variable not located within the path it is looking for.
Is this a bug?

Can anyone else confirm if this is happening to them?

Here the same.

According to the documentation it is a variable but AutoCAD says it's an unknown variable.
The conclusion is justified that the initialization of the development of critical subsystem optimizes the probability of success to the development of the technical behavior over a given period.

Given the variable name, and that it is constantly checking, sounds like a change in how AutoCAD notifies a user that one of their XREFs has been modified, no? Just a guess.

according to help, it is there as a variable to determine if the xref palette is open or closed, it is stored in the registry.  it can also be used to change the state of the xref palette.

Does this polling still happen when the core console is running instead of the full-UI application?
