Command Not Found

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Error Message

When running ArcCAD the following error message is returned:"Command Not Found"


One or more of the support paths are not listed, resulting in the application not finding the path to the specific support files.

Solution or Workaround

Check the file support search paths.

The following is a good example of what is listed in a typical file support search path:

c:\AutoCAD R14 or c:\AutoCAD Map 3.0
c:\autocad14\support or c:\autodesk\cadmap3\support
c:\autocad14\fonts or c:\autodesk\cadmap3\fonts
c:\autocad14\help or c:\autodesk\cadmap3\help
c:\autocad14\bonus\cadtools or c:\autodesk\cadmap3\bonus\cadtools
c:\arcad14\bin or c:\arcad14\bin

The directories listed above might be slightly different to your workstations and clients as it is dependent on where AutoCAD R14 or AutoCAD Map 3.0 and ArcCAD 14 were installed
