(2) Loading EasyGerb Inside AutoCAD 2000-20XX
Since EasyGerb is a plug-in for AutoCAD, so it must be loaded into the AutoCAD environment before it can be used. EasyGerb is installed into the folder (typically "C:\Program Files\NumericalInnovations\EasyGerb4\"). There is one EasyGerb ARX file for each version of AutoCAD. The EasyGerb file name indicates the release of AutoCAD that it has been designed for.
Please be sure to use the EasyGerb ARX file that corresponds to your version of AutoCAD.
