I think this is the last AutoCAD 2013 Autoloader enhancement to document now. Its more of an incremental enhancement than the others …
We strongly recommend that you set your plug-ins to load on demand (usually LoadOnCommandInvocation), rather than on startup. This is so a customer who has installed lots of plug-ins doesn’t see a huge slowdown in AutoCAD startup times. That wasn’t so easy for LISP apps – until now. Here’s an example of how you set a LISP module to load on command invocation:
<!-- LISP demand loading example -->
<ComponentEntry AppName="ADN_MINESWEEPER" ModuleName="./Contents/Windows/mylisp.lsp" LoadOnCommandInvocation="True">
<Command Local="TEST" Global="TEST" Description="Simple LISP demand loading example" />
Which is exactly the same as you’d do it for ObjectARX or .NET.
