Converting acad to vw


I was sent an autocad file that I need to convert to vw. The problem is that I don't have autocad anymore. I've downloaded the autodesk review thing, and the dwg trueviewer, but neither seems able to export as .mcd, only to other versions of autocad. What do I need? Can I actually do this?

I'm using vw 11.5, and it is unable to just open the file.

Try the Import DXF/DWG optin from the file menu.

I think that VW11.5 will import up to Autocad 2002 (or 2004) format. If the file is in a latyer version of AutoCAD, you will either have to ask the sender to save it as an earlier version or find someone with a later version of VW to open it and save it back to VW11 for you.
