We have recently had clients and partners begin using AutoCad 2018 to produce their drawings. I am having issues with opening/referencing these files through MicroStation. I updated my AutoCad to 2018 and I am able to open the files with that, but with MS I get an "unrecognized file format" error when attempting to open, and nothing happens when I attempt to attach the files saved with AutoCad 2018. Is there something either myself, or IT, can do to get these files working properly through MicroStation once again?
You have to get Microstation CE

Or download a copy of free TrueView from Autodesk to convert dwg files to an earlier version.
