CadTools Tips and Tricks / Speeding up commands in AutoCAD
« Last post by Architec on October 17, 2021, 10:02:37 PM »
Hi everyone!

I have found a nice and easy way to speed up almost every command in Cadtools for AutoCAD. I have talked with Lars about the possibility to implement it into the code itself, but it is not that easy, so it has to be done manually. But it is really easy and by my experience, it can speed up a command up to 10 times!

So after starting executing a command, that actively updates or communicates with the AutoCAD viewport (drawing object on coordinates, slope lines, sweep analysis, extracting block information, and so on) just trigger right-click menu in AutoCAD (for me it is the either long-press right button if no objects are selected or just right-click while anything is selected). It will stop AutoCad to update the viewport and speed up executing commands.

That is all. It is really that easy to do (I wish it was that easy to implement to the code too  :) )

I hope it will help you in your work with CadTools  ;)

Have tried to unregister and the register the DLL-file after removing the registry key?

For 64 bit:
Regsvr32 /u "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MSCOMCTL. OCX"
Regsvr32 "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\MSCOMCTL. OCX"

For 32 bit:
Regsvr32 /u "C:\Windows\System32\MSCOMCTL. OCX"
Regsvr32 "C:\Windows\System32\MSCOMCTL. OCX"

Hi!

Have been trying to start the CadTools and managed to find an older portable version (1.1.736) which starts just fine.
But with the latest portable version (1.1.748) I get the same 372 error.
Is it possible that inbetween this two versions you changed the mscomctl.ocx version? I don't really know what version is included in this portable one that can start (1.1.736).
Would be nice if I could run the latest version, but if not, have you got any older portable versions available for download somewhere?
Anyhow I did donate yesterday and got this version registered today so thanks.

Cheers, Karlos

Thanks for that info Lars.
I did try to delete those subkeys in the registry (although I only had 2.2 subkey and no 2.0 subkey), but that did not change anything.
Don't know, might be related to the fact, that I'm running this virtualised inside VirtualBox, although I can't see how, but who knows.
Thanks for your help so far.

Cheers, Karlos

Probably yo need to get rid of all previous keys pointing at wrong version in the registry. Unregister the ocx file an then search for the file in the register using regedit.exe. and remove hat information and finally register the correct version.

Make sure you take a backup of (export) the registry before starting

This link might be helpful when searching in the registry for the 2.0 subkey (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib{831FDD16-0C5C-11D2-A9FC-0000F8754DA1}\2.0)
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-US/office/troubleshoot/access/access-crashes-update-ms16-004
Delete the subkey described in Method 2 then use Method 1

Be sure to backup your registry before you begin. You also might need to reboot after editing.
