I have been given a DWS file that was created in ACAD. If I try and open a DWG 2007 file that the same company sent me and use the DWS file I get an error;
An Error occurred while loading DWG settings.........
I have added the DWS file
Anyone know why this would not work in V8i SS1
These are two different DWS files. In AutoCAD, a DWS is a DWG file that contains layer, dimension style, etc that are used as standards for projects. In MicroStation, a DWS file is a user preference file that stores DWG open/save settings. You probably meant to use the standards DWS file in a DGNLIB, instead of a DWG settings file.
Don thanks for the update. However, if someone gives a MicroStation user an AutoCAD generated DWS file, how do they use it. How can you get its content into a DGNLIB file.
