I opened an existing file and it only shows a gray screen.
In the views it appears someone has turned OFF view 1. Look at the bottom left you will see 1-8 options, turn on 1.
This is typical for someone that uses ACAD.
At first it seems that was the problem. I clicked to turn on view 1. The drawing started opening, then I got this message:
Then this one:
Maybe try opening view 2 instead. Seems like the file may be corrupt. What if you open another file then reference this file to it. If that works and the elements look correct create a new empty file from s known good seed file, reference in this file and merge it to the new file. The corruption could be caused by non-visible elements in the file which should be filtered out during the merge process.
