HI,How can i open Auto CAD files Read Only (Externally) ...Any Sugguesstion
You would have to find the file using Windows Explorer and remove the read-only attribute. Instructions can easily be found on the Internet. Are you on a network? Does someone else have the file open?You could open the file as read only then do a "saveas" under a slightly different file name.
There are multiple options to do this - see the tip:http://www.cadforum.cz/cadforum_en/qaID.asp?tip=2063
