Set up AutoCAD Electrical for multiple users


You can manually move any shared files to a new central location after installation by using normal Microsoft Windows operations to cut or copy and paste from their local location to a central shared location. These shared files are located by AutoCAD Electrical as long as they are placed in the AutoCAD Electrical defined path (such as in the project's subdirectory), the path given by the AutoCAD Electrical environment variable, or AutoCAD search paths.


We recommend that you create a backup of your information in another location and remove the shared data from your local drive to ensure that the data is being located correctly.
