thanks I have them both downloading.
There are 2 links because they must both be downloaded, unzipped to one directory and then run the CAD.avi.bat file to combine the 2 files back into one file. It took a week for me to get these posted so download before they remove them from the sight. (free sight so they get removed on a regular schedule)
This video covers how to use Bobcad in a organized manner with some general usage that you may not get otherwise.
thanks I have them both downloading.
I am not able to open the files ,I get acsess denied.I put all the files in one folder and unzipped them to the same folder. Help needed please
You unzipped the files to one folder. Do you see the file called CAD.avi.bat?
If you do run that file. If you are running windows 95 or 98 there may be a file name issue. We may need to modify the names to get them to work.
If you can run that file it should create a another file called cad.avi
The new file cad.avi is the file to view as video.
I got it to view! Thanks! Good useful info!
It was weird downloading. First my AVG said the .bat file was a virus, so i turned off AVG. Then the .bat file wouldn't run, so I opened a command prompt from START, accessories, COMMAND PROMPT and dragged the .bat icon into it. ACCESS DENIED! Then I "right clicked" on the COMMAND PROMPT and in the menu clicked "run as.." and a requester came up. I unchecked the "protect my computer.........." box and hit OK. The COMMAND PROMPT appeared again and after dragging the .bat file into it, the proccess was completed and the new "combined file" was ready to "click and view".
There must have been an easier way....
Sounds like this is one of those XP things where they try to protect you from stuff you don't need protected from.
BTW: I have for several years been using NIS and NAV on this system. The files have been scanned and are virus free.
You may be able to turn off the XP protection and do the same thing but I do not know for sure. Mine is dissabled as I use Norton.
mine is doing the same as bloy2004 did ,I will keep working on it ,I also get the viruse warning from avg.
This video is one of those that Sorin makes working with Bobcad very handy. I watched this video 3 times the first month after going to class. It has some useful everyday tips.
Follow the tips Bloy2004 used if you have AVG. It has placed protections against running unknown batch (.bat) files to help protect unwanted programs from running. The Batch file is a simple command in dos. You can also run this command from the dos window.
Open a dos window from the directory you have the files located in.
Make sure the dos prompt shows the correct path to the files and type the command as follows
copy /b /y "cad.avi.1"+"cad.avi.2" CAD.avi
This is all the batch file does to combine the two files together. You may be able to copy and paste into the dos window.

The files downloaded and merged with no problems, but I had no video when I tried to play it (got a codec error message). I remembered this problem being referenced in another thread, so I went back to get the link to download the new codec. The link referenced ended up being invalid because the techsmith site moved some files, but I found the new link: http://www.techsmith.com/download/codecs.asp.
Everything works fine now, and I'm looking forward to reviewing.
I did finally get it to work thanks for the help
The files are no longer available on the file-sharing site
tjones, or anyone who still has that video, can you please upload the video again so that I can have access to it?
That would be tremendously appreciated.
