This week we rolled out new laptops at our company which have AutoCAD Architecture 2013 when we were previously using ver 2010. I support these laptops, but I am not a CAD user myself, so I am looking for some help on interpreting a report such as what I pasted below. Is this normal activity, something to be concerned about, etc..
"He is getting an error message that there are 33 errors in the drawing when he opens up the two projects that he started this week. We are thinking because it is referencing in a drawing that was done in an earlier version of AutoCAD. He can still get into the drawing if he closes the error message out so it is not a huge issue, but wanted to let you know as well"
All help appreciated!- John
Newer versions of AutoCAD tend to find problems that older versions ignored: try to run AUDIT and/or RECOVER on all the files separately to fix them, QSAVE each, and see if the problem goes away.
Remember, you can't truly fix a reference file from the top file unless you go through RECOVERALL command (your user may not be aware of this), you must fix each alone to ensure the issue is dealt with correctly.
I agree with Dean. Make sure you have the service pack installed for AutoCAD Architecture 2013 and then use RECOVERALL on the drawing. Here is the link for the service pack:
