failure during opening a file ...

Recommended Posts


if I open a file, i got the following message:

This is an unrecognized file. It may be a VW File created with a newer version, it may be a very old MiniCAD file,it may have been created by another application,or it may be corrupted by hardware or system error. [Frown][Frown]

Does that mean this file is damaged? [Frown] Because it was drawn on the same PC a few days before!

THe used version is 11.5.1.

If it is really damaged - is there any known way to repair it?

Thanks for your help!

Kind regards,

Please send the file along with your vw information and OS to tech@nemetschek.net.

We will have one of our staff examine the file to see if anything can be done to fix the file.
