ACADE 2011 "Locate File" error

Everytime ACADE 2011 starts up it keeps giving me a "Locate File" window.

The File:

C:\Acade 2011\AeData\Proj\608661\608661-03.dwg is not fouind at the defined location, or in the project folder for project 608661.  Click OK to locate manually. 


The drawing IS in the directory!

I click OK, locate file and have tried the Open, and Locate buttons, but I keep getting the same error on strt up.  I have even tried oipening the drawing and saving, but sane error. 


Any ideas?

Hi Nathan,


Remove the drawing from the project.  (right click on the drawing select "Remove")

Then readd it. (right click on the Project and Select Add Drawing)


should solve the problem.

That fixed it.  I had tried this before, but the project was not active.  After making project active and doing what you said... everything ok.
