I can not get Hurricane to open AutoCad and run the newly created script file, it creates the script then it opens AutoCAD and that is it.
I then have to run the script by going to tools and run script.
I am running AutoCAD 2010 and windows 7.

Hi Neil,

Have you checked the F2 window to see what commands have been called (if any), please post the results here.

Thanks

Hmm.. I see nothing strange, other than a number of extras being loaded in.

Please confirm your AutoCAD executable is properly specified in the Hurricane Tools Options Config tab.

Also, ensure that you haven't added any switches to the same screen (make sure they are blank).

Confirm your script is simple to start with (till you get things working)

Confirm your batch output path is into the /SUPPORT/ directory.

Is this after a system upgrade? or did is start doing this out of the blue? Have you installed any other Add-ons recently?

I may need some screen shots, or a remote session to diagnose anything further.

Thanks

Here is some code from the script file, and this is a new install and as far as I know this never did work after I installed the program.

Strange, everything looks fine...

Another thing to try is a shortcut on the desktop with the /b switch and the path to the hurricane.scr file.

Hurricane simply uses the [autocad.exe /b hurricane.scr] syntax to launch AutoCAD and the script (at runtime). Nothing fancy going on.

If the script isn't running when Create and Run is clicked, it's most positively something else that is interrupting the load (menus, ribbons, other lisp etc...).

Currently hundreds of people running that version, and even AutoCAD 2011. Is this the only computer this isn't working on?

Thanks,

Hurricane for AutoCAD

I was able to get it to open AutoCAD and run the script by going into the shortcut and in the compatibility tab click on run this program in compatibility mode for windows XP (sevice pack 3).
It did the first drawing and then stoped, I can get it then to complete all the drawing if I keep typing in resume.
I have done a cut and pater of what was in f2, and attached the short cut change.
I am running windows 7 on a 64 bit laptop.
I am not sure if this helps you or not.

I was checking with some of our people in our other office that are using Hurricane as well, and they pointed out that is I am using startpoint which, renames the open command, and removing sharepoint should fix my problem.

I am trying to get a hold of my autoCAD and Sharepoint support people to get a hand with this.

Let me do this first and if that still does not work I will get back with you.

Sorry for the hassle for it looks like one of our 3rd party programs are the problem

I have now uninstalled sharepoint and hurricane works as expected.
