Loaded drawings from GenCadd4 and now all new drawings

PostPosted by Kate » Fri Jan 13, 2017 4:16 pm

I loaded some old drawings off of an old computer done in General Cadd 4 and it has changed all my current plans in 12 to 4....even the demos which came with the software. Does anyone know how to switch them back? My plans and the environment look fine until I go to layers which it then becomes apparent. The file path is now GC4.

Kate,

I am not sure in what happened to your drawings. At first glance, If I were in your position I may think about reinstalling GCP12. It may correct your problem it may not. It might change some of your settings. Of course back up all your drawings. By reinstalling GCP12 I do not think it will make your situation worst but I am not 100% sure. Some one else out there may have a better suggestion.

Regards,

Kate,

This sounds like a Windows default program issue. Right-click on a GXD and find the "Open With" option, expand it, and make sure it is set to use GCP12.exe as the default program (there is a check box to "always use this program" to open this type of file).
