I'm trying to change entity color by using the following code

C# Code:
    private static void Draw()
        {
            DxfModel model = new DxfModel(DxfVersion.Dxf15);
            DxfLine dxfLine = new DxfLine(MakeEntityColorByBlock(System.Drawing.Color.Red),
                new Point3D(-2, -2, 0), new Point3D(2, 2, 0));
            model.Entities.Add(dxfLine);
            model.ZoomExtents();
            DwgWriter.Write("test.dwg", model);
        }
        public static EntityColor MakeEntityColorByBlock(System.Drawing.Color a_color)
        {
            return EntityColor.CreateFromRgb(ColorType.ByBlock, a_color.R, a_color.G, a_color.B);
        }

the export going smooth and success, but when i'm trying to open the dwg file in Autocad, the line color ( layer color) is orange not red.
am i missing something ?

This is a limitation of the trial version.

Thanks Wout for your fast response.
Where can i find list of the limitation to be aware of. i'm afraid to spend time thinking i'm doing some wrong coding while it's a limitation :p

You see on the CadLib web page right under the download button it says this. It doesn't say anything else.
