Mister ZWCAD Manager,
I have an AutoLISP program that works fine in ZWCAD+ 2015 pro. I tried to load the same program in ZWCAD 2017 (trial version) and I received the error message:
Error: unknown character #\ď
happened in: #


To understand that AutoLISP programs are no longer supported by the new ZWCAD version, or what?

Why would I buy a new version of ZWCAD as long as the latest version of your program is not compatible with its previous version regarding AutoLISP?!

Hi Dober,

The Dynamic Block can be read and edited in ZWCAD now.
And Tool Palette will be supported in SP1 soon.

As for others, they are in the plan. Thanks.

Hi,
ZWCAD 2017 supports AutoLISP, and is compatible to ZWCAD+ 2015.
We would like to help you to solve this problem, but first thing first, we may need to find out what could be the reason for that error, since the error is new to us. Do you have any clue about which parts of statements or functions could be the reason by debugging? Thanks.

Hi Jan, What do you mean by ZWCAD 2017 Standard? You mean standard version or a specific function?

Hi Jenny,

ZWSOFT_Admins - in the comparsion table (at the start of this topic) has written:

ZWCAD Classic / ZWCAD 2017 Std / ZWCAD 2017 Pro / ...etc

In the accordance with this table - I'm askig when will be avaiable ZWCAD 2017 Std, because now is avaiable only ZWCAD 2017.

Hmm ?

Hi Jan, Jenny is on vacation now.
Both ZWCAD 2017 Std and Pro are available, and you can download it from the official website. After you download it, you can use a Std or Pro license code to activate it. The ZWCAD version (Std or Pro) is dependent on the license (a Std or Pro code) you use to activate.
