    ArcGIS for AutoCAD

    cad-coordinator
      I have been playing with getting ArcGIS set up in AutoCAD 2012 for two days now.
      Here are the steps I use:
      1. Run CAD as Administrator
      2. Type "NETLOAD"
      3. Select ArcGIS250 "dll" file.

      The ESRI/ArcGIS250 window pops up and then disappears, but it is nowhere to be found. I am runninbg AutoCAD in Classic mode, I have switched back to Drafting and Annotation mode as well, and am not able to find the tools to utilize ArcGIS. I am really at a loss... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

          Hi Sam,

          If you netload when AutoCAD is in Drafting and Annotation mode, you will be able to view the ribbon. You can then switch to Classic and back to Drafting and Annotation mode and still view the ribbon.

            So I take it that ArcGIS for CAD is not available in Classic view then?

              Hi Sam,

              The commands will still be available, so you can create a custom menu.

                I am using Autocad 2011 on Windows 7 32-bit with Carlson Software installed.  I re-enabled the ribbon, which is currently blank.  Used the netload command, and all went well, but I have nothing in the ribbon.  Since you mentioned the commands are still there I tried one.  esri_identifymap and got no map services found.  What I need are a list of commands available after installing this addon.  I've browsed the help file, and found a few, but not all of the command available in the ribbon.  Could you tell me or point me to the place where I can find these commands.  I have looked in cui and they're not there.  Any help or info would be appreciated.
