I'm trying to export the layer states from a bunch of drawings using a script and Hurricane. In AutoCAD 2004, a dialog box asking for the file name keeps coming up regardless of the states of filedia and/or cmddia. The same script works fine in 2000i (it asks for the file name on the command line).

Is this a "feature" of 2004 and does anybody know the work around?
Does anybody know if it has been fixed in 2005 or 2006?

Does your script use the command "LMAN"? If so, try "-LMAN". Many of the newer dialog based commands use a dash before the command to produce a command line version of the command in lieu of the dialog box version. Maybe this is what the problem is here.

I use -lman to start the script because, as you point out, lman brings up the dialog box right away. For reference the script is"

-lman
s
CATV123
e
c:layers$FILENAME$.lay

where it runs into trouble is after the e(xport) it brings up a file save dialog box with the correct name suggested.

Hmmm. I get the same results as you. Looks to me like bug. I'll do a little more research, but it sure looks to me like AutoDesk has a problem here. I'm sorry to have been so presumptuous originally. I'll post something if I find anything, but it doesn't look good to me. I don't have access to 2005 or 2006, so I don't know if anything has been done to fix the problem. My expectation is that AutoDesk tends to multiply their bugs from release to release rather than to exterminate any of them, tho.
