    Hi all. I try to open published *.dwg files from intranet portal. Then I
    click the URL the Internet Explorer launches and start to download file. Then
    AutoCAD launches but it hidden from the user until the whole file been
    opened. There is way to see it in Task Manager but to the user it looks like
    IE “hangsâ€. If AutoCAD prompts to open addition files or wait another action
    from user it appears behind the IE’s window and I need to use Alt+Tab to
    switch to AutoCAD window. Some users lose all patience and closes IE without
    waiting. Is this way to launch AutoCAD in foreground while opens published
    files via URL?
    This behavior not only with AutoCAD files but with other files too.
    IE 6.0 SP1
