Rude install

Discussion created by Dale Dunn on Mar 9, 2007
A new irritation that I don't remember seeing before...

I allowed the installation manager to install 07 SP3.0 and now when I open AutoCAD there is a PDMWorks Workgroup splash screen and a menu with a single entry that launches the new SW Explorer. This is extremely annoying. I was never asked if I wanted to allow my AutoCAD installation to be altered.

For others who wish to reverse this intrusion I figured out that you need to remove the PDMWorks line from acad.rx, or delete it if that is the only line in the file. You can edit this file in notepad.
