I am in receipt of some SAVE AS files from Vectorworks: DWG and DXF from each of the above releases. When importing into a empty AEC file ( SE) in Windows 7 DataCAD closes after a few seconds of importing. I wonder if there are tricks or tips from anyone that I may employ. While trolling this board it seemed that perhaps I should try importing directly from the VW file without using the SAVE AS..... I will try that.

You might try running the DWG/DXF through AutoDesk's DWG TrueView and save it back out before importing it into Dcad.

There are other Acad clones that you could try as well, but most (if not all) of them require payment - but I don't believe DWG TrueView costs anything.

Good luck!
