Image Manipulations Improvement Hotfix
This hotfix resolves several image-related issues in the following ways:
- Accellerates plotting to raster file formats including bitonal CALS or TIFF files
- Removes pinstriped lines when plotting drawings with large, slightly-rotated images when using HP plotting devices
- Repairs the displaying and printing of image frames when the IMAGEFRAME system variable is set to 0
- Accellerates the plotting of drawings with attached MRSID images
Description of Problems
- Plotting drawings to most raster file formats, especially bitonal CALS or TIFF files, is slower in AutoCAD® 2007-based products when compared to previous versions of the same applications
- When plotting drawings with large, slightly-rotated images attached, output may appear with pinstriped lines. A preview of the drawing will not display these pinstriped lines
- When the IMAGEFRAME system variable is set to 0, the image frame is sometimes displayed and printed
- Plotting drawings with MRSID images attached is slow

To install the Image Manipulations Improvement Hotfix
NOTE: You must have administrative privileges on your Microsoft® Windows® operating system to complete the installation process.
This hotfix should only be applied after installing AutoCAD 2007 Service Pack 1 or Service Pack 2 or corresponding service packs for other affected products.
- Close all software applications.
- Find the product installation folder; for example C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2007.
- In this folder, right-click the AdImaging.dll file and select Properties.
- Click the Version tab and confirm the file version.
- If this file is version 18.104.22.168 or higher, then proceed with this installation.
- If this file is less than version 22.214.171.124, then you must first install AutoCAD 2007 Service Pack 2.
- If this file is version 126.96.36.199, then this hotfix has already been applied.
- Rename the affected original files.
- In the product installation folder, right-click the file AdImaging.dll and rename it AdImaging.bak.
- In the product installation folder, right-click the file AdIntImgServices.dll and rename it AdIntImgServices.bak.
- In the AutoCAD driver installation folder (for example, C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2007\DRV), right-click the file raster9.hdi and rename it raster9.bak.
- Double-click the attached file ACAD2007SP2_IMAGE_PLOT_MRSID.zip. Browse to your AutoCAD 2007 installation folder and extract the files to the following folders:
- Extract AdImaging.dll and AdIntImgServices.dll to the product installation folder (for example, C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2007)
- Extract raster9.hdi to the product driver installation folder (for example, C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2007\DRV)
- Verify the versions of the replaced files.
- Right-click the new AdImaging.dll file and select Properties. Click the version tab and confirm that this file is version 188.8.131.52.
- Right-click the new AdIntImgServices.dll file and select Properties. Click the version tab and confirm that this file is version 184.108.40.206.
- Right-click the new raster9.hdi file and select Properties. Click the version tab and confirm that this file is version 220.127.116.11.
NOTE: To remove this HOTFIX, delete the new AdImaging.dll, AdIntImgServices.dll and raster9.hdi files that you downloaded to the product installation folder and restore the files you renamed in Step 5 to the original names.
