AutoCAD Translation Issue

N/A

I just downloaded Solid Edge 2D and I am trying to open an AutoCAD file. I keep getting
"Translator failed while opening selected AutoCAD file."
Any ideas, or am I doing it incorrectly? It's just a 2D .dwg file, nothing fancy.
Thanks in advance.

Depends on what version DWG file it is. If it was written with ACAD 2007 or
2008, then it is a good chance that it is a 2007 DWG file format which
cannot be read with SE 2D V19. You would then have to wait for SE 2D V20.

Yep, it's a AutoCAD 2007 file. Thanks
