AutoCAD 2013 Support

I’ve just released OpenDCL 7.0 Alpha 4 with support for AutoCAD 2013. Even though this is an alpha release, not much development work has been done since OpenDCL 6 was released, so this is a very stable pre-release build that can be safely used in production if needed.

    I tried loading the OpenDCL 7.0 for AutoCAD 2013 msi on Windows 7 64 bit and recieved the fowling message:

    INVALID 1620

    This installation package could not be
    opened. Contact the application vendor to
    verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package.

    Can you give me some help?

    Thank you,

    @Joe, it sounds like your file got corrupted for some reason. Try posting on the discussion forum, as this blog comment area is not a good place to provide support. Make sure you include in your post the exact filename that you downloaded.

    Thank you Owen,
    We have web blocking software, so I “saved as link” thinking this would side step the direct download, however this probably was the reason for the file not working. I was able to download the file from my laptop and transfer it to my work computer. All is well in AutoCAD 2013 land.

    Thanks again,
    Joe D.

    Improvement proposal for dcl_DelayedInvoke function

    Dear Sir,

    I found the timer function is achieved by continually sending commands during the usage of dcl_DelayedInvoke, I hope you can make it better that the timer function can run independently, so it dosen’t affect the status of commandline.
