advanced rendering for AutoCAD
I have encountered a problem in AccuRender 4, which I hope someone can help solve. In order to place "exterior" light sources, I need to open the Contents browser. But when I click on Contents, I get the message "This file must be present to allow the IExtractIcon interface to work". I have no idea how to fix this. I did a complete un-install and re-install of AccuRender, which did not solve the problem.
This has made it impossible to do Interior renderings using interior lighting, because it tells me that exterior light sources are required to do interior lighting. Because Contents won't open, I can't (edit) place exterior light sources.
I've also noticed that placing ceiling wall-washer lights doesn't show the illumination. The lights themselves show, but no lighting effects. I tried lowering the lights .5" below the ceiling, thinking that the ceiling itself might be interfering, but that didn't solve the problem.
Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.
