FAQ 2-2: AutoCAD Error: Invalid attempt to access a compiled function definition. You may want to define it using defun-q

 

Your AutoCAD has a S::STARTUP routine that is defined using 

(defun S::Startup() ( your stuffs here ) )

You can simply fix this error by adding a -q after (defun, as shown below

(defun-q S::Startup() ( your stuffs here ) )

Use Windows search to search  your AutoCAD and customization folder for *.MNL, *.LSP files that contain the string S::STARTUP.

 

 

If you install your AutoCAD in the default folder, most of the time your will find S::STARTUP in these files.

 

AutoCAD 2002

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2002\Support\acad2000.lsp

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2002\Support\acad2000doc.lsp

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2002\Support\acad.lsp

 

AutoCAD 2004

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2004\Support\acad2004.lsp

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2004\Support\acad2004doc.lsp

C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2004\Support\acad.lsp

 

Once find the *.LSP or *.MNL file containing  S::STARTUP, edit it using any text editor, change

(defun S::Startup()  

to

(defun-q S::Startup()  

by inserting a "-q", save the change.
