Error exporting IDW to DWG

40 Views, 4 Replies

When exporting IDWs to DWGs in IV6 SP1, I get "Error Saving DWG File - Make Sure AutoCAD is Running." I get this error whether AutoCAD is running or not. The DWG seems to save OK, but I'm tired of seeing this error. Anybody else see this?

We noticed this same error. It seems to appear only if you specify anything
less than AutoCAD 2000 as the format. Our Router software currently requires
Acad R14 so it looks like upgrading has just forced us to
do more, as now I must open each AutoCAD file exported and save as to r14.
You may note that yes, your FIRST sheet acad file is OK, but if you use
multiple sheets, that is the only one that will be exported.



Any AutoDESK people reading this, please feel free to verify and hopefully
fix this issue. My employer
currently has no plans to upgrade our Router software.

Could you please change your login name to something that doesn't contain Autodesk in it?
Many of us have our readers highlight Autodesk posts, and it makes you appear to be from
Autodesk.

Kent, sorry about that. I did not realize when I added the news server to
Outlook
express that the default username it setup was the same as the news server
name.
It should be different now I hope, as I changed it to something else.
