Drawing file is not valid

When attempting to open AutoCAD 2008 .dwg files with DWG TrueView 2008, I am receiving a series of errors, beginning with, "Drawing file is not valid." The series of error messages is shown in the attached .pdf file.

The files that are reported missing (i.e., AecBaseenu.dll) are in fact present in /Program Files/DWG TrueView 2008

Older AutoCAD .dwg files (2004) open properly.

I uninstalled and reinstalled DWG TrueView 2008 three times, with no change in the error messages.

Please let me know how to fix.

Thanks

I got the error message "Drawing file is not valid" when I opened it with
AutoCAD 2009. Perhaps the drawing file is not valid?

Here is one more. Would you please try it? If it does not open, I will go to the source.

Thank you.

Wetland Delineation Data.dwg opens fine.
34 errors found when you run AUDIT.

ALTA OR KOHLWEY.dwg is not a drawing file.
It's just a file filled with zeros that happens to have a
.DWG extension.

All my .dwg files from that batch open properly on two XP machines but do not open properly on two Vista machines. I suppose the first file that I sent to you could have been corrupted during the transfer. For now, we are using XP machines when we need to run DWG TrueView. Maybe an automatic Windows update will fix it overnight. Thanks for your efforts.

I just installed DWG TrueView and I'm not being able to open my AutoCAD files. I'm getting the error: "Drawings file is not valid" Any ideas on how to fix this problem? I'm using AutoCAD 2008 & Windows XP.

Thanks

It's not recoverable. Time to look for your .bak file, rename to .dwg and
use this.
