When I try to get into a drawing I am getting an error message-file decompression error:101. What does this mean and what may have caused this so I can try to avoid it in the future? The drawings are being created in Datacad 15. Can errors occur with version 15 when one user has windows XP and another has windows 7?

The message means that DataCAD encountered an error while trying to extract the compressed database from within the AEC file.

How many different files display this error?

Is the file stored on the local hard drive, across a network on another computer, or elsewhere?

If you send in a copy of the file, I can try to recover the information.

I had a sessions file so there was no problem retrieving the file. The files are on a server and are worked on with individual desktop computers. The question is whether or not there will be issues with drawings if worked on with computers with different operating systems in this case Windows XP and Windows 7. The problem came up after the drawing was closed out in Windows 7 and reopened on a different computer with Windows XP. The pc with Windows XP had issues with more than one file.

No, the operating system has no effect on this.

Also try emptying out your Datacad Temporary Files folder and move any temp files out of the job folder as well. Sometimes after a crash temp files can be left in there and Datacad gets hung up on the leftovers.
