I have a big problem with ZWCAD+ 2014 Pro version 2013.10.25(17150) same on other computer with another ZWCAD 2014.
When opening *.DWG files on server or hdd Im getting this:

ZWCAD Message:
Cannot find the specified drawing file.
Please verify that the file exists.

No matter if I double tap on file or browsing it with File>Open>
But if I copy that file on my desktop, then I can open dwg file. That is happening with a lot of files and dont know what to do now.

Any suggestions?

Helmut, This could be due to the UAC control issue, you could try the following solution:

Open Regedit

Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Find the EnableUA key and change it to 0.

Reboot.

Thank you for your replay.
Disabling UAC dint fix it, but I found out why is this happening.
Problem was with the path to file. If in the path is specific letters like "ā, ē, ī" then cannot open the file.
As far as I know, that is not a problem in ZWCAD 2017 versions.

Helmut,

Yes, ZWCAD+ 2014 doesn't support Unicode feature, so that could be the reason that the files cannot be recognized if the names contain some non English letters. And ZWCAD 2017 supports Unicode.
