Hi,

 

are you sure that you run AutoCAD 2014 on Mac? I only know AutoCAD 2013 for Mac (OS) currently.

 

>> im having problems opening drawing which were created in autocad from older additions

And what problems are these? Do you get any information, any exception, any error message?

Have you tried command _RECOVER to get those drawings opened-with-repair?

Hi,

 

>> it just does not open

Start AutoCAD, then start command _RECOVER and select the drawing you can't open, does that work now?

Have you tried multiple drawings or just one?
