AutoCAD (LT) opens drawing in new AutoCAD session

Troubleshooting

Last modified on 28 April 2020

Problem:

AUTOCAD (LT) is already open. Another drawing is being openend from Windows explorer (double-click) but this starts a new AutoCAD (LT) session and does not add the drawing to the existing session. 


Cause:

This has to do with the file extention setting for the DWG extention.

Solution:

  • Select a DWG file
  • Give a rightmousbutton click and choose Properties
  • Find the 'Opens with' part, Click the [ Change... ] button
  • Change the setting to the AutoCAD DWG Launcher instead of the Acad.exe / ACADLT.exe.
  • When the Acad.exe / ACADLT.exe is set a new session of AutoCAD (LT) will be started with every double-click. (A Double-click can be seen as a double-click on the Acad.exe /ACADLT.exe)
  • When the AutoCAD DWG launcher is set, Windows/AutoCAD will check for an active AutoCAD (LT) session and will append to this session.



Another method is to open a drawing from AutoCAD itself. Every newly opened drawing will be opened in the active session.
