DWG files in a browser using VV

168 Views, 14 Replies

When I click on a WWW link to a DWG file all I see is a tiled VV icon in the browser window. However if I click REFRESH numerous times it seems to load it about 1 in 20 times. Is this a BIG BUG noone but me seems to have seen?

I need the ability to view DWG files from a link on a WWW browser - if VV won't do this successfully can any recommend another free plug-in or viewer as we want to use DWG files with MS Tahoe when it is released.

I have exactly the same problem. Voloview will only display this hideously ugly tiled VV icon. Hitting refresh very rarely works. The only way to have it actually display the drawing is to re-install voloview - which only works the first time.

We have tried numerous methods of instantiating the control - all with the same result. Attempting to load drawings into voloview itself directly after downloading will often (but not always!) result in the application simply crashing with no message.

I have also tried having voloview open in the background while trying to launch a drawing in the browser. This results in the browser and voloview both locking up.

I am running windows 2000 IE 5.5., although we are experiencing the problem on other platforms as well.

I need a solution, or an alternative control ASAP.

Are you using IE? IE5.5? IE5.5 + SP? On Win2000? I
seem to have the exact same problem.

I would like to see a sample html file or any other
method you used of instantiating the control.

I am having the same problem on Windows 2000 with
IE 5.5 and the latest updates from the Microsoft site. I never knew refresh
would get it to load. I will try that and see if I have the exact same
problem.
