Visio 2016 - Unable to open AutoCad files

    Question

  • Hi,

    I am using Visio 2016 but unable to open AutoCAD files of type .dwg in visio 2016. Auto cad files are of 2013 version. I tried all the methods.

    1. open Auto cad files as ->'other files' in visio

    2. open Auto cad files in visio from Addons ->visio extras->convert CAD drawings

    The results are the same. I get the following error

    'cannot open the file. The file may not be a DWG or DXF file, It may not be in a supported version of the DWG file format, or it may be corrupted. check the file and try again.

    I am able to open .dwg files in other tools like Micro station (Bentley) but not in visio 2016!

    can someone help me urgently please?

    Regards

    Udaya p

  • Hi Udaya,

    Please try to save the AutoCAD file as an AutoCAD 2007 .dwg or .dxf file before opening it in Visio 2016. Then confirm if the issue can be fixed.
