One big difference between AutoCAD for Mac and AutoCAD for Windows is the extensibility support. With different operating systems certain languages are just not supported.
- [Instructor] One of the more complicated aspects…of moving an application from one operating system…to another is dealing with all of the outside languages…and protocols that tools in your application…may need to use.…For example, AutoCAD uses certain tools…that are inherent in Windows…and are not present in Mac OS X.…Most of these are programming languages…like .NET or Visual Basic.…This means that there are certain AutoCAD for Windows tools…that will not be brought to AutoCAD for Mac…due to the differences in the operating systems themselves.…
Currently, AutoCAD for Mac only supports LISP routines…and does not support visual LISP.…This means that some of the LISP routines…you've accumulated over the years may not work…in AutoCAD for Mac.…Typically, if a routine is not compatible,…you will receive an error when you try to load it.…So, let's take a quick look at loading routines…in AutoCAD for Mac.…We'll start by typing in appload in the command line…just like we're used to.…From here, we can choose our LISP routines…
