I received a drawing from a customer in what the properties say is version 2012. I tried to open in that version but to no avail. This is the error I get......
Close SolidWorks and then open 2012 SW RX and select as shown below
Which opens up SW - then open the file
If it's a drawing, try opening the assembly or part it's associated with and save. Sometimes that does the trick to refresh that first.
Worth a shot.
I forgot that one - works 99% of the time
If you only received the drawing, even if it opened it would be blank. They need to send the associated solid files as well.
If he didn't have the parts to go along with the drawing, I'm not sure if this error would hit first or barf up the "can't find the file, please browse and give them to me" dialog box first.
True, but the OP said he'd received the drawing...didn't mention the other files so I figured I'd throw that out there.
Try opening in edrawings?
