I notice if I double click a dwg extension then MSCAD2005SP1.3 opens OK. Closing the drawing then closes MSCAD also. If MSCAD is already open and I open a drawing and then close, MSCAD stays running. This has happened on both PC and Laptop - new and old. Its the only application I have known that does this. Is this how its s'posed to operate?

That is not quite the way my copy works here.

If I go to My Computer and locate the DWG of choice and double click on it - the program starts up and the drawing opens as expected. If I exit just the drawing, the program remains open and allows me to open another drawing from inside the program.

I do not know of a way to change this to do what you are describing (or to change yours to do what mine does here).
