acad trial version
« on: November 10, 2023, 04:59:11 PM »
I'm trying to get familiar with using VSCode for lisp development.  If I download the trial version of Acad can I use vscode after the trial period has expired?

Thanks.

Vs Code is free and is a separate product, you wonít be able to run your lisp after the autocad trial ends.
You can do this in ZwCad and GStarCad though, you just canít save the drawings files after the trial.
these both support debugging with Vs Code

So I won't be able to debug or test my code either.

That answers my question.

I'll look into ZwCad and GStarCad.


Thanks,
Mike

Bricscad has Blade very much like Acad VLIDE. So can write and test.
