Double clicking over a *.dwg file

Postby CMS Inc » Thu Apr 20, 2017 5:58 am

Some operating systems that run multiple applications able to run *.dwg files may face issues to properly pop&run CMS IntelliCAD by direct DWG file double clicking located at a Windows folder or Windows desktop.

Make sure you to uninstall CMS IntelliCAD , reboot the system and reinstall CMS IntelliCAD again.
Then, right mouse click on top of a dwg file and select > properties > General tab > Press "change" button > click "more apps" > browse to the end of all options and select "Look for another app on this PC". At this point browse for icad.exe at software edition version located, by default, at C:\Program Files\CMS

When I try using the 'double click' method for opening a drawing I receive an error message:

"There was a problem while sending the command to the program"

Intellicad opens in the background, with no drawing loaded, and if I double click on the drawing again it will then open in Intellicad.
