Warning message "…sqlite not found" when opening a model

Product(s): SewerGEMS, WaterGEMS, StormCAD, SewerCAD, CivilStorm, WaterCAD, PondPack, FlowMaster, CulvertMaster
Version(s): Varies


When trying to open a model a message appears stating "…sqlite not found."


When selecting a drawing file (eg. *.stsw or *.wtg) to open a model, the database file (eg. *.stsw.sqlite or *.wtg.sqlite) should be located in the same directory. The file names should also be identical.

What are the drawing and database file extensions for the version I'm running?
