I have downloaded ArcGIS for AutoCAD and now need instructions on how to plug it in to AutoCAD 2020.

Thank you

I have successfully loaded build 370 into AutoCAD 2020.

Can someone give me some specifics on how to get it to "stick"?  When i close AutoCAD and open it again it is no longer there.  I know i can go back to Netload, and reload the .dll.... but i'd like to have it automatically load each time i open autocad.

The application comes with a launcher that you can find in your start menu. This launcher will open both AutoCAD and ArcGIS for AutoCAD loaded, while AutoCAD 202 isn't officially certified for the 370 release I believe the launcher should still work. In the upcoming 400 release, we will be automatically loading when AutoCAD launches, to alleviate this problem.

Another easy way to make ArcGIS for AutoCAD load whenever AutoCAD starts is to use either an ACAD.LSP file or a Script.  Each of these is outlined in the documentation for ArcGIS for AutoCAD.
