There are two parts to BondgenPart I - a SKILL program called apd2aif that reads the APD database and writes out an AIF file. This program runs inside of APD. It must be installed on the machine that runs APD.
Part 2 - a program called Bondgen that reads the AIF and draws your bond document. This program is an VB/VLX that runs inside of AutoCAD. It must be installed on the machine that runs AutoCAD.
I. Installing APD2AIFDownload the apd2aif104.exe self installing .exe
Download the hostinfo.exeprogram
Execute hostinfo on your machine - it should return a hostid such as 0x56ab78000
email the hostid and a request for password and keycodes.
You will get an email back with the password and the keycodes:
password: munster keycodes: !#ACS SDFDSFf SDFSDsG TYRSGds SDFSDFf SDFDSFs SDFSDFf GHJGDfd HMake sure APD is not running and then execute the apd2aif104.exe installation program.
Supply the password when requested. This will enable you to continue past the password screen.
When asked to enter the keycodes you were given, paste your keycodes into the box for the keystrings.
The apd2aif SKILL installation program does the following:
Copies Program Files
Copies the SKILL, .exe and support files (about 900 KB) to the directory you have
selected during the install. By default this directory is
Creates a registry entry
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ArtworkConversionSoftware\apd2aifwith the following keys:
InstallDir = C:\Program Files\apd2aif (or wherever you installed) Version = 1.02 (the version installed) Release Date = October 21, 1999 (release date)
Updates (or creates) the SKILL initialization File.
APD reads upon start-up a file called apd.ilinit which is normally located in the <cds_inst_dir>\share\pcb\etc\skill\ directory. The install program will add lines for initializing apd2aif. If the file does not exist it will be created.
Updates the APD Menu.
APD reads upon start-up a file called apdlayout.men which is located in the <cds_inst_dir>\share\pcbtext\cuimenus\ directory. The install program will add lines for the apd2aif menu item.
POPUP "APD&2AIF" BEGIN MENUITEM "E&xport AIF...","skill (apd2aif)" END
II. Installing Bondgen[Remember, Bondgen must run inside of AutoCAD so it is installed on the same machine running AutoCAD.]
There are two components to Bondgen: the ACS Libraries and the actual Bondgen program itself. The basic installation directories are shown below:
C:\ACS Package Tools -----------+-----------------------+ | | Acslib Bondgen | --------------+ +-- acslib.vlx | +--bondgen.vlx +-- acs.key examples | +-- demo1.aif +-- demo1.tec
acslib password : mustard bondgen password: ketchup bondgen keycodes: !#ACS SDFDSFf SDFSDsG TYRSGds SDFSDFf SDFDSFs SDFSDFf GHJGDfd H
When asked about licensing options, select Hostid - then paste your keycodes into the box for the keystrings. This will install the bondgen program and update the autocad menu files.
