NOTE: This hotfix should only be applied after installing AutoCAD MEP 2008 DACH Service Pack. This installation process requires you to manually copy/replace the template file - MEP DACH mm.dwt.

  1. Copy the file "MEP DACH mm.dwt" to the following directory (the old file should be overwritten):
      C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\All Users\Anwendungsdaten\Autodesk\ACD-MEP 2008 DACH\Template\

  2. If you have changed the default template location you must copy this file to the new location. Look in the registry for the following entry to confirm this location:
