I have a user that is getting an error when opening a file sent to him by
someone creating an original dwg on a Mac. The file does open, but the
formatting and layout is incorrect.
The error says :

The NLS files required to convert the text entities and symbol table names
in your drawing from code page mac-roman to ANSI_1252 cannot be found or are
not installed in your system.
AutoCAD can try to convert text entities and symbol table names using the
default system code page; however, this might result in a loss of

To install the missing NLS files, double-click the Regional Settings icon in
the Windows Control Panel.


I don't know how the regional settings in Windows control panel will do
anything. It is set correctly for my user. Did the original creator (using a
Mac) have some settings in his regional settings set incorrectly?
A search of Microsofts site says to install NLS files in windows 95 or 98
for Mac's for similar problems.
The file name is Cp_10000.nls, but I can't locate it anywhere.

This was posted over ten years ago and no responses?  I am getting this error today (running Windows 7 64 bit and AutoCAD 2008).  Is there a sollution to this problem?
