Unable to open past saved files

Begining yesterday, I am unable to open any of my saved drawings from the home page of Solid Works drafting. I get the following message box:

Solid Edge 2D Drafting ST
Cannot open file. Make sure the file is the correct type and version for the application and that you have read access.

Like I said this began yesterday. Has anyone got any ideas?

Wayne,
Were you able to resolve your issue. There are problems with the newsgroup. I am finding out that I am not getting all the messages.

Re: Unable to open past saved files

Gday fellas
I have just started getting the same error. I imported a dxf file into solid edge on the managers pc, edited it and saved it out as a dft. When I tried to open the same drawing on my pc i get the same error, yet I can open the drawing on the foremans pc. Is it a config issue?

Send the file to me and I will check it out.

Re: Unable to open past saved files

I believe the software versions on the pc's were slightly different. There were some option under the applications button on the managers and the foremans versions that were not on mine. I uninstalled and redownloaded then reinstalled the software. The applications options were there and it all works nicely again. We can draw, save and edit from any of the pc's.

I also am getting the same error occasionally in SE 2D ST5. Out of about 20 files saved, now 2 of them will not open. I have tried to open them on another machine running the same program version (105.00.01.015), but get the same error. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Unable to open past saved files

Can you send one of the files. I will have it checked. Email it directly to me.

Re: Unable to open past saved files

Hi I am very new to solid edge. I have downloaded the program and when I try to open a .dwg file to mark up the electrical drawings, I continually get a message "failed to open document" message. Are .dwg files not able to be opened and edited with Solid Edge?

Re: Unable to open past saved files

DWG files can be opened with Solid Edge granted they are saved to a AutoCAD 2012 version or earlier. Solid Edge currently cannot open AutoCAD 2013/2014 version files.

Thanks,
