I've been working away for months now on SW2008, happily sending e drawings to all and sundry when I get a call from an old customer saying he cannot read the e drawing I sent. Thats because you have e drawings 2007, I am sending an E drawing 2008 file - upgrade - its free. Can't do that he says - corporate IT, blah blah blah. OK I say, I'll send you a self executing E drawing instead no problem.

Now in previous versions I am sure there was a Publish to E drawing command in the file menu? In that you could choose to save an executable e drawing. Just noticed in SW 2008 its gone. Furthermore in the save as E drawings options there is no option for executable. Hmm.

What you do now is open the E drawing in E drawing application then Save as executable there.

Now thats not a problem but what was wrong with the old way?
