Issue:

You have the next release of AutoCAD and you can not view your CADWorx models as solids and the CADWorx object enablers wont install.

Solution:

You must modify the registry settings path to the latest object enabler.

  • Close AutoCAD and all other Autodesk products
  • Open the Registry Editor
  • Navigate to: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\ObjectDBX\R20.1\Applications\CADWorxPlant]
    • Where R20.1 is the version of AutoCAD you need your object enablers loaded
    • If CADWorx Plant is not there you will need to add it by right click New --> Key
  • Add the following settings by right click New -->String:

"DESCRIPTION"="CADWorxPlant Object Enablers"

  "LOADCTRLS"=dword:00000001

"LOADER"="c:\\cadworx 2015\\plant\\support\\CADWorxPlant.dbx"

  • The loader path needs to point to your current CADWorx object enabler

  • Reopen AutoCAD and load a CADWorx model to test.

Notes:

  • You must first have the latest CADWorx Object Enablers installed.

  • Editing the registry can be very dangerous, and can cause permanent damage to your system. Please proceed with caution and only if you feel confident in your abilities.
