How to change the profile setup from Architecture to vanilla version in AC2008

I have prepared some drawings in Autocad2008 and sent it to an engineer. One of the engineer is able to open my DWG drawings in eDrawing viewer or with AutoCAD 2013 LT Trial without an error but another, however another engineer who tried to open the drawings in Autocad Mechanical 2012 and he was getting an error "93 errors were found in the drawing file during open. Would you like to cancel this open?" and in the bottom most pane it is showing warning as "Entity type is mapped to non configurable layer".

          Now after some R&D we found that we provided drawing files made via the Architecture version of AutoCAD and not the Mechanical version. And now we need to change the profile setup in the Architecture version to the vanilla version and save the file as AutoCAD 2010.

                            Please let me know how can i change the profile setup in the Architecture version to the vanilla version in Autocad2008.

I'm not sure I follow: you have 2008, how do you plan on saving the file to 2010 format?

Any version 2012 will find errors 2008 cannot find or even know about: this has nothing to do with ARCH or ACAD profiles sadly, 2012 is just better at detecting issues than 2008.

 

Simply put, you shipped an AEC-content file to someone that did not need it: you can use -EXPORTTOAUTOCAD command to remove these and create plain-AutoCAD files. In 2008 or 2012 or LT2013.

 

See this article about how to create/load separate profiles:
