How to modify the AutoCAD DWG Launcher…

Hi everybody… I had a couple of people asking this question the last couple of days…
“Even though I installed AutoCAD 2015, when I double click on a drawing it always opens in AutoCAD 2014 … How do I fix this?” 

The problem is that for one reason or another the AutoCAD DWG Launcher is set up to work in this case with AutoCAD 2014. 
Here is what you need to do the make it work: 
First please check that the DWG files are associated with the AutoCAD DWG Launcher. 
Select a drawing -> Right click -> Go to Properties
Go to the Registry Editor (Start -> RUN -> regedit
Look for the following key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\DwgCommon\shellex\apps\{F29F85E0-4FF9-1068-AB91-08002B27B3D9}:AutoCAD

Select the OpenLaunch key (right click -> Modify…) and change the software version to the correct one as this image shows...

You only need to change that key, but I modified the PrintLaunch key as well to keep consistency…  
After doing this just double click on any of your DWG files to confirm that it works as you expected and you are good to go…

I can’t open my InfraWorks Project…

If your InfraWorks Project no longer open or you are unable to work with it anymore, it is a couple of things that you could do to try to make it work again…
This is the default location of your Project Files:
C:\Users\USER_NAME\Documents\Autodesk InfraWorks Models
InfraWorks Projects have two components:
1. *.files folder (Project_Name.files)
2. *.sqlite file (Project_Name.sqlite)
There are two hidden .git file folders in the project that you need to look for:
C:\Users\USER_NAME\Documents\Autodesk InfraWorks Models\.files\.git
C:\Users\USER_NAME\Documents\Autodesk InfraWorks Models\.files\unver\.git

Select and delete index files in both of these folders.
If for some reason you can't delete these folders reboot your computer, it could be that some of the “git” processes are still running.
If after deleting the index files the Project still does not work; then delete both .gif folders.


**Important to know: Deleting the .git folders will result in converting the currently open proposal to be the master, and all other proposals including the master will be lost.**

Online Map Imagery in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015!

Hello everyone… This is probably my favorite new feature in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015… After you assign a coordinate system to your drawing, the Geolocation tab appears on the ribbon.
**You will need to sign in to Autodesk 360 in order to use this**
Click the Geolocation tab -> Online Maps panel -> Map type pull-down, and then select Aerial, Road, or Hybrid image.
After that the map will be displayed in the drawing.
You can now Clip the Aerial image on your drawing for a particular area and it can be print as well.

You can check this link for a complete list of New Features in Autodesk AutoCAD Civil 3D 2015...
