There are several causes, depending on your version of CADWorx.

Solution:

  • Undock your AutoCAD command line

  • Save, Close & Reopen CADWorx

Solution 2:

  • Right Click your CADWorx Plant desktop icon

  • Go to the end of the target line and add: /nologo

  • Press OK

  • Launch CADWorx


Solution 3 (CADWorx 2016):
  • Verify that the C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2016\R20.1\enu directory contains the following XML files.
    • CADWorxAssemblyPaletteSetting2016.xml
    • CADWorxEqiupment.xml (yes, there is a typo)
    • CADWorxLineView2016.xml
    • CADWorxPIDOpen2016.xml

    • CADWorxSpecView2016.xml
    • CADWorxDiscontinuityView2016.xml
