I have a .dwg file that cause AutoCad 2009 to crash when I attempt to open it. I think that the problem is a missing or 'orphaned' X Ref, but I can't open the file to 'unload' the X Ref. What can I do to open the file or recover the graphics? Best regards Phil

Thanks for your response.

To fix the problem I redrew the componenet and deleted the offending file. I found that I could open the file with AutoCad LT but not AutoCad 2009 Mechanical.

Opening dwgs in autocad


In the past the fastest way to fix this is to go directly to the file and try to open it. It is possible that file or database has been corrupted. In some instances the file type dwg is not associated with autocad and the application hangs because it is looking for .dwg as an associated file type to autocad.

Let me know if you need further clarification.
Good luck!

Opening dwgs. in autocad 2004


Try rebooting your computer, then relaunch AutoCAD. If your .dwg file will not open then open the backup file. Sometimes the .dwg file goes crazy and the backup file will save your life, most of the time. Also make sure that your machine has enough memory to run AutoCAD. Memory is either your best friend or your worst enemy when working with AutoCAD. I hope this helps.
