AutoCAD Map 3D saves your
options in one of three places, depending on the option type.
- Drawing options are saved in the drawing.
- User and installation options are saved
in the acadmap.ini file. On startup, AutoCAD Map 3D searches
for the acadmap.ini file first in the
current directory, then in all the directories listed in the AutoCAD Map 3D path,
and finally in the AutoCAD Map 3D executable directory. If it does not
find the acadmap.ini file, the program
creates the file in the current working directory.
- Multi-user options are saved in the binary acadmap.sys file.
The acadmap.sys file is located in
the AutoCAD Map 3D executable directory. After setting the multi-user
options, the system administrator should make the file read only
to prevent users from modifying or deleting it.
you uninstall AutoCAD Map 3D, acadmap.ini is also uninstalled. If
you have modified the settings in this file, you should save acadmap.ini prior to
uninstalling. If you uninstall and then reinstall AutoCAD Map 3D, you
can simply replace the newly installed acadmap.ini with
the saved one. Note that Map release
4 and earlier saved option settings in the ade.ini file.
If you uninstall release 4 or earlier and then install a newer release
of AutoCAD Map 3D, you cannot replace the newly installed acadmap.ini with
the saved ade.ini. Instead, you will need
to reset your options in the AutoCAD Map 3D Options dialog box.
