Solution

Applies to:

Legal-Aid 2000 to 2010

 

Symptoms:

Legal-Aid is not installed correctly. When typing "Legalaid" at the command line, the following (or similar) error messages appear.

  • Unknown command
  • Macro not found

Solution:

Legal-Aid is not installed correctly and must be manually installed as follows:

 

For AutoCAD 2000 through 2010 (AutoCAD 14 users, skip to next section below):

  1. If Legal-Aid has not yet been installed on the computer, do so now by running Setup.exe from the Legal-Aid CD-ROM .
  2. Add the Legal-Aid installation folder to the AutoCAD support path as follows.
    1. Start AutoCAD and type "options" at the command line.
    2. In the options dialog, click the "Files" tab and then open the "Support Files" folder.
    3. Click "Add" and then "Browse", and browse to the folder where Legal-Aid is installed.
    4. Now close the dialog box.
  3. Now add the Legal-Aid lisp routine to the AutoCAD startup suite as follows:
    1. At the AutoCAD command line, type "appload"
    2. In the Startup Suite section, click the "Contents" button.
    3. Click the Add button and browse to the Legal-Aid installation folder.
    4. Now select the Legal-Aid lisp file for your version of Legal-Aid. For Legal-Aid 2008 users, select "la2008.lsp", for Legal-Aid 2007 users, select "la2007.lsp" and so on. (Important: Do not select any *.dvb or *.exe files).
  4. Shutdown, then restart AutoCAD

 

For AutoCAD 14:

  1. If Legal-Aid has not yet been installed, do so now by running Setup.exe from the Legal-Aid CD-ROM.
  2. Add the Legal-Aid installation folder to the AutoCAD support path as follows:
    1. Start AutoCAD and type "preferences" at the command line.
    2. In the options dialog, click the "Files" tab and then open the "Support Files" folder.
    3. Click "Add" and then "Browse", and browse to the folder where Legal-Aid is installed.
    4. Now close the dialog box.
  3. Close AutoCAD.
  4. Open NotePad and look for the file "acad.lsp". It will be located in the main AutoCAD directory or sometimes in the AutoCAD/Support directory. If you can't find it, that's okay. Move on to the next step and we'll create it.
  5. Add the following line to the file in Notepad. If other commands are present, then add it to the end. (load "legalaid.lsp")(princ).
  6. Save the file and restart AutoCAD. If you are creating a new file, save it in the main AutoCAD directory as "acad.lsp".

Important: Do not use acad2000.lsp, or acad2000doc.lsp. These files are used by AutoCAD and should not be changed.
