I had been working on a file for a few days without any issue. Then, I came in this morning and can't open the file without getting the error listed in the subject. This same error now happens to the .bak file and to the autosave files from almost a week ago even though I have succefully opened a backup file within those dates just yesterday. It's like out of nowhere this whole project is no longer able to open. I have tried reinstalling ASD with no change.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This same error occurs when trying to open with Design Review or DWG TrueView. I also could not get the DWG to DWF converter to install on my 64 bit computer. Is there any way to recover these files? What would have made all of them bad files over night? It just doesn't make sense.
Wish I could, but I'm dealing with proprietary information and can't risk it. I am going to try the old fresh install of windows and see what happens.
The same error is actually dicussed in a german autodesk discussion group,
You also find a sample file (DWG 2013) which produces the error.
Made with AutoCAD Architecture 2013.
Already tested on serveral computers - always the same error.

I just experienced the same problem. Lost a week's worth of work. Is there anything I can do? Recover doesn't work on the .dwg, .bak. or .ac$ files either.
Any solutions? Same problem here. Files in backup are partially broken. We can open them, but copying every element to a new file reproduces the crash. Copying a single, simple element will work, but the dwg-file has a size of 3MB. We use AutoCAD Mechanical 2013 on Win7 64bit.
Has anyone determined the cause / solution for this issue?
I have 28 workstations, we just rolled out 2013 and received the first error like this today.
Thank you in advance for any information that may prevent further issues.
