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

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

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.
