What is this? "VLIDE.DSK File currupted"
« on: September 21, 2017, 03:28:18 PM »
I noticed in my Visual LISP Console the following message. Which hasn't affected anything but I was just curious if this was a problem for anyone else.

Code: [Select]
; User warning: desktop file corrupted: "C:/Users/Jon.Doe/AppData/Roaming/Autodesk/AutoCAD 2017/R21.0/enu/VLIDE.DSK"

That is the config file for the VLIDE.  Can you access this file?
Maybe compare or just replace with this one: http://www.geospecialling.com/index.php/2011/08/hacking-visual-lisp-ide-to-be-a-little-more-awesome/

I would use it but after I opened the .dsk file in notepad, I couldn't help but notice the specific configurations that might end up causing problems if I loaded it. I tried to reset my AutoCAD profile and I still get this desktop file corrupt error. Everytime I run vlide, the same 2 lisp files automatically open. Even after a profile reset. So profiles doesn't seem to affect vlide.dsk

You can just delete or rename it if you want and AutoCAD will recreate it.

Thanks! That's good to know. I can delete it.

Off the solution but handy info: Clearing "(*edit-file-history* "")" of "vlide.dsk" Works to clear it! Also, when needed, I go to my reg and clear my "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R15.0\ACAD-1:409\Recent File List" Else when a file listed is from a disconnected "thumbdrive" my A2K crashes.. Handy info
