Really simple example i am stuck on, just trying to get started.

I have a .net console application referencing the trial assemblies. In proj.cs I have added :

TargetFramework>net5.0-windows</TargetFramework>
<UseWindowsForms>true</UseWindowsForms>

I think this is required in a console application as it was complaining System.Windows.Forms not found.

In the program.cs:

C# Code:
DxfModel model = null;
model = CadReader.Read("C:\\a\\b.dxf");  // faults here with object not set to an instance.

From what I can see CadReader.Read is a static method and the b.dxf file exists.

I expect I am doing something really dumb, can someone help?

Thanks,

Chris

Hi,

For the Windows version of CadLib you indeed need to set TargetFramework to net5.0-windows in the project file.

Can you reply and attach a zip file with the DXF file? All files are confidential and only you and me can see them.

This particular one was originally created by LT55 laser template software which defaults to R14. I opened it in DraftSight and saved it as 2000 version. Maybe this has started the problem. I will also try opening the original.

Hi,

I'm not able to reproduce the problem. Can you zip your project and e-mail it to wout@woutware.com?
