There are two components to Wirebond: the ACS Libraries and the actual Wirebond
program itself. The basic installation directories are shown below:
C:\ACS Package Tools
+-- acslib.vlx | +--wirebond.vlx
+-- acs.key examples
Download the acslibXXX.exe self installing .exe
I normally put this in a temporary directory called: temp. acslib requires a password but no keycodes.
Download the wirebond101.exe self installing .exe
Again, this file goes in the temp directory.
Download the hostinfo.exe program
Execute hostinfo on this 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:
acslib password : mustard
wirebond password: ketchup
!#ACS SDFDSFf SDFSDsG TYRSGds SDFSDFf SDFDSFs SDFSDFf GHJGDfd H
Make sure AutoCAD is not running....
If you run the install while AutoCAD is open, the Install will be unable to
add the Wirebond menu to AutoCAD.
Execute the acslibXXX.exe
This will install the acslib libraries and make a registry entry so that Wirebond knows where to find them. The password is required but no keycodes are needed.
Execute the wirebond101.exe
Paste in the long key code string when requested to do so.
- Start up AutoCAD and load a lead frame drawing.
You should see a Wirebond pulldown. Click on it
and the Wirebond options will be available.
