View Full Version : v2000i Copyclip Problem
4th Mar 2008, 12:02 pm
Last December I found a link, whilst looking for the answer to another problem, to an Autodesk patch that cured the copyclip/pasteclip problem I had on my v2000i. One of my colleagues has the exact same problem (sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't) but I now can't find the link in your forum. The only things I can find now seems to be for 2007 converting back to 2000, whereas I just downloaded this into my AutoCAD and I've never had a problem since. Can someone point me in the right direction again please.

I found service pack 2 for 2000i but nowhere in the read.me file does it refer to a fix for copyclip/pasteclip. Was it incorporated in the first service pack? There didn't seem to be a hotfix either. You specifically remember one solely for 2000i?

It was not service pack 2 as I already had that. Hand on heart I can't say it was for 2000i specifically, but I do remember being routed to the Autodesk site.

OK. Well there is a patch for those who use 2007 and do a "save as" back to R14 or 2000i. Is that what you're looking for?

Take a look at this:

You probably installed DWGGateway (http://www.dwggateway.com/).
I used 2000i from 2000 until August, 2008 and this is the only thing I know that will open later versions right in AutoCAD 2000i and it keeps the Copy/Paste and Wblock working.

Sorry I've been tied up. We're stuck in v2000 as our in-house software doesn't work on later versions. We have no control over what version dwg's people send us. It's not a transparent copyclip problem, it's just on some dwg's copyclip & wblock won't work. I have installed DWGGateway on my machine, but I had downloaded the copyclip patch & solved the problem before I did that. I'll try installing it on my colleagues machine & see if it works. Thanks for all your help so far.

Rather sadly installing DWGGateway doesn't cure the copyclip problem, however, my colleague is now able to open v2007 dwg's, hoorah! I'm still convinced that I found the answer in this forum. I'm begining to wish I'd done the other machines at the same time as I did mine. Hindsight is a wonderful ability.

Once they are back saved with out the Hotfix on the later version, they are corrupted and will never copy/paste or Wblock in earlier versions. You will need the original file.

My machine, which has had the patch I described, seems to copyclip anything now. the CADmen upstairs have to ask me to copyclip certain things on my machine after that everything's hunky dorey.
