If you retrieve this message here is how you fix it: Autocad 2014: an executable file was found outside the specific trusted locations . what do you want to do? Make sure this file comes from a trusted source and does not contain malicious code. Load- Do not load. Fix: Open Autocad: Tools>Options>files>trusted locations click Add and point it to the path below. So in this instance it would be C:\AutoCad Automation Tools\sample You need the folder not the file name. Then restart AutoCad and you shouldnt be prompt with it any longer. Alternative: Turn off Secure loadins, this is not recommended. From options>System>Executable file Settings then select load from all locations with displaying a warning.
