Problem Exporting Into DWG File





I am having issues exporting my Lighting plan into DWG files. The computer keeps coming back to me saying ¿The lie could not be open. Make sure you haven't got it open on another application"


However, all my apps are closed. The only things open on my computer is VW, Finder and now Safari.


Any suggestions?

@Alfonso I suspect the full error you are getting is an ODA Platform error.




This pops up when you try to export a Vectorworks file that has special characters in the name or file path such as / $ # @ ( ) etc 


It should only contain alphanumeric characters such as 1 2 3 A B C a b c _ - etc


Rename your Vectorworks file if it has any special characters and or rename the target folder, folder path if it has special characters in its name as well.
