i am unable to open up a sldprt file in edrawings 2015. I get the error of unhandled exception and then it tells me there is an error reading the file. Not really sure why it is doing this
Do you mean any file or a specific one?
It will open an autocad .dwg file but it will not open a part file. I split the part using the split part feature so it has multiple saved bodies in separate part files. I was wondering if that could be the problem or if the part was too large and causing it to crash.
Create a simple block part and check if the issue is still there? If yes try reinstalling the eDrawings (make sure latest service pack). If not then something with the file. So try with another file with few split, like a block with two split bodies saved as separate parts.
