I may having difficulty with a search for reference files, because I am being confounded by the redesign by Microsoft for the search engine in windows 7.
Since all my efforts so far to reliably get Excel to talk to my BricscCAD v14 have eventually failed, I am trying to nail down where the reference files are located. And especially to find if there were any duplicates. A search by Windows 7 search function using _file:bricscad*.dll **_ only shows one file, _bricscadapi.dll_ located in _C:\Program Files (x86)\Bricsys\BricsCAD V14 en_US**_
I had hoped it would bring up "BricsCAD Db 14.0" and "BricsCAD APP"
The .dll extension is actually a guess on my part. I don't know for sure what the file type for a reference in VBA should look like. Perhaps it is embedded in the bricscadapi.dll file. In VBA Tools/References menu, there is the option to browse for the files. It shows obj,.tlb,*.dll as the main file types. But, the pull-down file type menu, also allows .ocx and .exe.
I tried a search for _file:bricscad. **_ but oddly enough, it didn't find the file I found in my search with the .dlll extension. Perhaps a wildcard is no longer permitted in both the file name and the extension. A search for _file:bricscad* _ brought up many files, but only the main BricsCAD.exe program file and the _file:bricscad*.dll **_ I found earlier, had viable extensions.
What am I doing wrong? What should the file names for the BricsCAD references look like?
Sorry for the messed up formatting. Ignore the bold and italics. It is pretty much all random. Markdown doesn't seem to work properly, and there is no one "erase formatting" feature on the forum.
