I can open a files from PW into ProjectWise Integrated AutoCAD 2016, however when I go to xref in a new file, the folder bar from PW is blank. We have a batch plotting tool, which has the same issue when trying to open files from AutoCAD on the PW server.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled all AutoCAD versions and PW, but I'm still having the same issue.
Ensure that you’re using the latest PWE so that it has the current ACAD integration, also when you are reinstalling ensure that PWE is installed after ACAD
Thanks JROD, but I have uninstalled and reinstalled both ACAD and PW with the latest versions and I'm still having the same problem. PW was installed last. Any other suggestions are welcome.
If you haven't already, you can download and install the ACAD/C3D integration module found on Bentley download center, look under "Projectwise Explorer Client". The module should relate to the Projectwise version you are using. if you click on the module in download center it will show some information about pre-requirements, I believe the latest module is 10.00.03.520 and it requires PWE 10.00.03.140+.
Hope this helps
According to the version support matrix AutoCAD 2016 has been supported without an add-in since version 10.00.01.25. Any version after that should work without additionally installing anything.
Make sure you install AutoCAD before ProjectWise Explorer. Then when installing ProjectWise Explorer make sure Integration is turned on for AutoCAD 2016 options.
