I'm trying to open a .dwg file that a client sent me and I get this error. Is there any way around this?
Have you tried to open the file in another software, such as Draftsight?
Start DraftSight 2018 by itself. Don't load the drawing.
Type RECOVER on the DraftSight command line and the Open dialog is displayed.
Select your problem file and see if DraftSight can fix your issues (if any).
