  1. Thank you for sharing it. But asked what version to use with Autocad. I now use the 2007 version to help me.

  2. Hi there,
    how to export “Resource Files” from file without GUI? I’m curious that nobody is asking for command line feature. I suggest you to also add option for manual playing selected file. Now it’s automatic played which is not acceptable if somebody is working with infected file. Think about it a bit. Thank you.
