I have a query,
My computer has Microsoft Office Visio 2003 installed into it. The other day I installed AutoCAD 2004.dwg file which could make it easier for me to make drawings from my computer.
However, when I tried to open it, this error message occurred.
What could have gone wrong?
Open CAD Drawing
Cannot open file.
The file may not be a DWG or DXF file, it may not be in a supported version of the DWG file format, or it may be corrupted.
Check the file and try again.
I will appreciate it.
I am unable to open AutoCAD.dwg file in my computer
Well there is a conflict between the files and the extension isn't compatible with the files you have saved. When you are saving a file of Microsoft Office Visio 2003 is not compatible with the file extension of the AutoCAD which is .dwg example would be autocadsample.dwg
When you are in AutoCAD the correct format should be .dwg as an extension while using the Microsoft Office Visio would be as follows: .vsd , .vss , and .vst
MicrosoftOfficeVisio.vsd, MicrosoftOfficeVisio.vsd and MicrosoftOfficeVisio.vst
Which is not really supported by that format and that disable to open the specific file.
To enable those format you need to install also The Microsoft Office Visio 2003 which there are 6 addons that make your auto cad format to open in Microsoft Office Visio format.
Those are the following:
Open AutoCAD Drawing
Insert AutoCAD Drawing
Export AutoCAD DWG
Export AutoCAD DXF
Convert AutoCAD Drawings
Convert AutoCAD Library
Save A Visio Drawing as AutoCAD file
To access those add ons simply follow this:
Select on Tools menu
Point the add ons
Click Run Add on
Select convert CAD Drawings or Convert CAD Library
Click the file you want to navigate to convert
Hope this works for yah now.
