View Full Version : Unknown format

After upgrading Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 i cannot open one very important AutoCAD (dwg format) file. Getting 'Unknown format' error. I could open it before!

Any thoughts please?

Windows 10 installation includes removal of programs that are known to not be compatible. Maybe your DWG file opening application fell victim to that?

In AutoCAD there is a tick box in the purge dialogue to purge orphaned data, make sure this is ticked on.
Take a look at this link to see if it may be related: http://www.dwg.repair/

no specific experience with that but have had issues in the past with PS files when the suffix was messed up (though as you said I did nothing to change it). I manually reformatted the suffix and issue was solved. Hope it is something simple like that for you.
