Hi, I have and issue when opening a drawing from our server in acad 2011. A pop up window comes up saying that I have to load language packs. I googled it and the most likely issue is that it is acad.vlx virus.
I have 8 other acad PC's running fine with 2011 and with the same drawings. I formatted the drive, and loaded
XP and all updates. I loaded acad 2011 fron new DVD. Same issue. Scanned all files with uptodate AVG and
MAlwarebytes-no infections. The acad site says that I have to edit the acad20xx.lsp file which I searched for and is not on the hard drive. And delete the acad.vlx file which is not on the drive. My folders show all hidden files.
Please let me know if any of you have run into this situation and how to solve this problem before it effects the other PC's or drawing files on the server.

Thank You, Randy
