Autodesk® Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler
The Autodesk® Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler is a freeware application that allows object data created in Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3 to be accessed outside the Autodesk Architectural Desktop environment.
Note #1: The Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler has two available installers, MSI and EXE. The MSI installer uses a smaller setup file; it's quicker to download, but requires a previous installation that used the Microsoft® Installation wizard. The EXE installer uses a larger setup file; it takes longer to download, but does not require a previous installation that used the Microsoft Installation wizard. If you download the MSI installer, and it does not work for your application, download the Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler executable installer (9.58 MB).
Note #2: The Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler cannot be installed on a system that has either AutoCAD Architectural Desktop Release 2.0 or AutoCAD® Land Development Desktop Release 2.0 installed.
Note #3: If you are installing the Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler on AutoCAD® 2000 or AutoCAD® Map 2000, you must have Microsoft® Internet Explorer 5 or greater also installed.
Note #4: The default installation of 3D Studio VIZ R3.0 and Release 3i automatically installs Object Enabler version 2.0. This version of the Object Enabler must be uninstalled before Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler can be installed.
Note #5: If a drawing includes architectural objects from a previous release of Autodesk Architectural Desktop, and it is saved from an Autodesk application with the Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3.02 Object Enabler installed, the architectural objects are converted to the newer versions specific to Autodesk Architectural Desktop 3 and 3.3. After conversion, the architectural objects can only be opened as proxy graphics in previous releases of Autodesk Architectural Desktop. To avoid this situation, use the appropriate Object Enabler version to open these drawings.
