I have to ZWCAD+ 2014 Pro before and recently install the ZWCAD Mechanical. Can I know if there is any default setting or priority as the if I open a dwg file from my folder, which software will open the file ?

Hi, you need to set ZWCAD Mechanical as default program to open dwg drawing by Windows configuration.

Please take reference of this post:
How to set ZWCAD as the default CAD software to open DWG files?
http://www.zwsoft.com/forum/thread-2823-1-1.html

For ZWCAD Mechanical 2014: from installation path such as C:\Program Files\ZWCAD MECHANICAL 2014 ENU\Zwcadm > select "StartZwcadm_Z_ENU.exe" as default program to open dwg file.

Did you mean you can't open/save dwg drawing by clicking open/save button or pressing keys ctrl+o/ctrl+s ? Only the command work?

Yes.. when i press save or open button, no prompt going out, such as how to select a folder or anything else. now, when i press save or open button, there only can do on the command work.

Hi, the problem didn't happen on my side. Please try with the latest version, which you can download from here: http://www.zwsoft.com/zwcad/ZWCAD_Mechanical, its version number is Verum=2013.10.31(17416). You can check your current version number by inputting command VERNUM. If your current version has already been the latest version, please try to resolve the problem by re-installing ZWCAD Mechanical.
