i had autocad 2013 but it was infected with a virus so i was obliged to install 2012 version. problem is that all my files are saved as 2013 and would not open in 2012. any idea how to save all files at once to older version?

thank you

Do you still have access to 2013?  If so, I imagine a script could be set up to do this in bulk.

Patchy, I'm not that familiar with TrueView.  Will it create useable files in 2012 from 2013, or is it just a viewer?

It should be named true convert, but it's part of trueview.

It can convert 2013 to ealier versions in bulk.

Good to know.  Looks like the best answer to the OP question to me.

Hello

 

DWG TrueView 2014 (or 2013) can convert N DWGs in Batch mode from DWG2013

to DWG2010 or to DWG2007 for example ...

So it's THE solution !

What "virus" infected AutoCAD 2013 that you chose to abandon it instead of simply fixing it? If it hit 2013 it will hit 2012 on the same PC eventually... .
