VLX File unable to load
« on: April 29, 2019, 01:13:21 PM »
Hi,

I have a VLX file (attached file) to load on AutoCAD but the issue is that every time I  try to load the file it just says: "Unable to load ....VLX file".
Please I would like to solve this problem. The password for the VLX file is "romatelo" (without quote marks).

Thanks in advance.


EDIT (John): Removed attached VLX. I apologize, but until we determine if it is safe for others to download/run I cannot allow it to be posted. Please post the source code instead.

Do you have the source code for the VLX file? Sorry, but you should not post "compiled" files (most people here will not download them).

Sry about that. It has been a while since I made my last post. What do you mean with "source code"?

No problem.

The source is the file you used to create the VLX from. The one with all the "(defun foo () " type code in it.

Put another way: did you create this yourself, or did you download it from somewhere?
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

try {GreatPower;}
   catch (notResponsible)
      {NextTime(PlanAhead);}
   finally
      {MasterBasics;}

I download it from youtube it was a video (spanish language) to make location plans and a grid UTM coordinates and so on in AutoCAD.
I really would like to create that kind of Autolisp routine. I am afraid it wouldn't help so much the way I put it here :(
But some one could guide me to develop that kind of routine lisp? I really appreciate it so much.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately without the original code used to make the VLX file you'll need to contact the original author for more guidance.
