Custom Linetype not showing up on all computers

I created a linetype using a shp, however it is only showing up on my computer and not on anyone elses. Right now the .lin, .shp and .shx are all in a folder on a server where they can be accessed by anyone.

 

Is this something that I will need to make sure is actually on everyone's hard drive and not just the server?

 

Everyone else gets a "Bad Definition" error.

Right now everything is pointing to the hard drive. We currently have 3 computers with single licenses and then we also have a couple on a network. Should I have everything pointing to the server? I am new to all this customization and trying to figure the best way to get everyone on the same page...or at least as close as possible.

The standalone computers (no network connection) will need the custom linetypes copied to the appropriate folder on their hard drive. It should be obvious they cannot access the server.

 

We couldn't add to the support path to point to the folder on the server?

OK. I read that to mean those three computers were not connected to the network.

 

Do you have a custom .lin file for the linetypes or were they appended to the acad.lin file?

I have a custom .lin that was created with using a shape. I did not add it to the acad.lin file it is a stand alone. I just had someone try adding the path to support and it seems it worked. Now just to remember when I set up the other computers to add the path.

 

Thanks!
