I have installed the last version of Autodesk Review (12) and I would open the dwg file by Autocad 10. This does not appear possible, because it call for DWGtrueView. I have observed that in the Option there is not the label for dwg setting, as (I think) in the case that DWGtrueView is installed. However, this is not the case, despite once it was installed and then removed. Do you know how is possible to open a dwg without installing also DWGtrueView? Thank you in advance.
P.S: I have already attempted to reinstall Autodesk Review, but the problem remains..
Thank you for posting.
The issue you encountered may caused by:
Thank you for your answer. I tried to follow your suggestion by installing dwgTrueView, but I encountered another problem: when I launch the program a fatal error message occurs that it requires a video resolution higher than 1280x720. I have 1920x1080 (and the big characters are setted). I have Win7 63bit installed. Thank you again for you support.
I did not meet that error before, are you using DWG Trueview 2012 64bit installer?
You can download it from (make sure to choose 64bit version):
Yes, I tried both the last versions (12), in the first time the 64bit and then the 32bit as well. With the last one, the error message remains, but it seems possible after some time to open the file, that appears strongly incompleted.
Incidentally, I have read in the discussion groups that a similar error message have been registered by some other users (maybe for different causes?). Any suggestion? Thank you
I cannot reproduce it since we do NOT have test machine with 1920x1080 screen resolution right now.
This is a DWG Trueview installation issue, I will forward the problem to DWG Trueview experts, stay tuned.
I remained tuned but no answer from your colleagues trueView experts.. Do you have some possibility of insisting with them a little more? Thank you in advance, Giordano
DWG Trueview expert have not replied to me yet.
Could you please leave an email adress so that I can keep you in that email loop?
I realized that the problem is origined by the setting of character (as I said, given my very high resolution, I have "big character=150%). Removing this setting, the DWGtrueView is launched without message error about the required resolution. However, I suspect that some directX problem occurred (I had the version 11, while trueView install 9runtime), because later it was not more possible to come back to the original setting. In particular, the Notebook changed all the type of characters to a "very basic" format and the ClearType option does solve the problem. Despite I tried to increase the dimension of character to 160 and even 180% the characters remains relatively small and thick. Consequently I restored the PC to the safe point before the DiectX installation and all is now again ok.
