I have downloaded a DWF file. I am running OS Windows XP and Autocad 2008. I tried four time to down load Autodesk Design Review 2013 and failed everytime. with message 0x2. My guess is this software is not compatible with XP.  How do I open and save a DWF file in DWG?

Can't convert DWF to DWG (It was made so you use it for information same as PDF)

Want to see the DWF , drag and drop it into your drawing area of autocad and follow the promts.

What then Autodesk Design Review Does? It just allows one to open th file? I saw online some softwares for conversion. I was afraid to download these softwares for obvious reason. Why this partuculat extension is created? Anyway, thanks for the information

I don not have AutoCAD in my Laptop. If I installed the AutoCAD in my Laptop - will I be able pull up a AutoCAD drawing for review or mark-up? I sometimes need access of the drawings when I am on the road.

Autodesk Design Review or Autocad for your laptop?

Sure you can install autocad if your license is still good.

I have a license for one station. I do not want to buy another station for in frequent use. I am thinking of Drawing Reviewer. What is the difference between  Design reviewer and True view? I have true view to convert DWG files of recent version to 2007 version that I use.
