I installed Design Review 2012 on my machine (running Xp64bit) and was working all morning just fine until I tried to re-open another dwg file and this message now comes up.
I tried reinstalling the Design Review 2012 program, but it still has the same problem..
Thank you for the first post!
Please try below solution to see if it works for you.
Register the DWGImporter.dll manually.
1. From the Windows taskbar, choose Start > Run.
2. In the text box, type regsvr32 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Autodesk\Autodesk Design Review 2012\DWGImporter.dll". Press Enter.
This should successfully register the DLL.
Tried that, it come up with successfully loaded.
The message still comes up though.
Could it be a version bug? Im trying to open an AutoCAD 2011dwg file.
ADR standalone does not support view DWG file directly. It should work with AutoCAD or DWG Trueview to view DWG files.
Which application are you using for viewing DWG file in ADR?
If you've uninstalled either version of AutoCAD or DWG Trueview, AcCtrl or ipublish will be uninstalled. Thus, you will got the error message you attached when opening a DWG file in ADR.
I suggest you uninstall and then reinstall the DWG application(AutoCAD or DWG Trueview) to keep DWG import works in ADR.
Re-installing DWG Viewer 2012 fixed the problem, thanks!
A letdown of this program is the fact you can't directly open the DWF back in AutoCAD.
Would be nice if the markups came in on their own layer/layers that you could dismiss or turn off as edited them.
Trying to install ADF2012 and get the following error every time:
It says :the Following Failed to Install: DWG Trueeview2012 (ox643: internal erroe)
I am having problems with ADR 2012, I had the 2011 version and had no problems. When it up graded it installs fine but when I go to open the program it will just sit on the opening screen. If I go to my task menu it does not show that the program is running but it still has the opening screen on my desk top. I have uninstalled it and re installed it with no luck. Any suggestions? Thank you for your time!
Thank you for posting your problem here.
Our testing did not meet that problem before and we are not able to reproduce the error you've encountered now.
Your case shows ADR 2012 installed as normal but DWG Trueview 2012 install failed.
There is a new change for ADR 2012 installer:
It will check DWG Trueview 2012 installer as a bundle installation by default, which is not in previous release.
So we would like to know if you're really going to install DWG Trueview 2012?
-If not, you can uncheck the option "Also install DWG TrueView to open DWG files directly from within Design Review. " before install ADR 2012 bundle, and then continue to install ADR 2012.
-If yes, we suggest you uninstall any exist DWG Trueview application and try it again, or just install the application from:
Hope it will help you resolve the problem.
