Errors in migrating AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011 to 2012

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I migrated my catalogs and everything in my AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011 to Plant 3D 2012. But I have an issue with the old custom catalogs which originally came from Plant 3D 2010. I migrated those edited catalogs from 2010 to 2011 and it works without issues but now that I need to migrate to 2012, I encountered errors and it cannot be open with Spec Editor 2012. I got this error when migrating to 2012.

Supporting content for these files cannot be found

Specs and Catalogs refenence supporting AuteCAD Plant 2010 content such as block graphics cannot be found. The catalog or DWG folder may have been moved or been erased.

– Specify AutoCAD Plant 2010 content folder

– Continue coversation without supporting content


And this error came out when opening catalog in Spec Editor 2012. How can I fix this?

There are certain modules in the new version of the software that are specifically designed for the purpose of migrating so that it can be done successfully.

By looking at the first error, I think that there is either something wrong with your AutoCad 2012 installation that it cannot find the supported content needed for the conversion or it has completely finished the compatibility support for AutoCad 2010.

You have to confirm the second fact from their website or through the documentation.

Once you are sure that it is present then try the following.

  1. Open the project or files in 2011, save them again in 2010 format if you don't have the original 2010 copy.
  2. After that, import that newly made or original files of 2010 directly to the 2012 version.
