Ver 3.65.7158 does create the 90.1 baseline case correctly.

Hi all,

Thanks for the responses.

After some testing, it seems that

-          Ver 3.64 - can open ACAD 2010 files saved from ACAD 2013/2015

-          Ver 3.65 - cannot open 2004/2007/2010/2013 files saved from ACAD 2013/2015  (this causes the Teigha error)

-          Ver 3.70 - can open ACAD 2013 files  (but, for some reason, is missing the 90.1 compliance option)

So, back to 3.64 for this project.

I suspect that AutoCAD 2013 is too new of a version for the version of eQUEST you are using. Try saving the AutoCAD file as an older version, then load that into eQUEST.

Has anyone, by chance, seen this before?

This msg appeared the first time I tried to load an autocad 2013 DWG file.  I've since tried saving it in other formats, eg DXF, and all eQuest will give me is a blank Custom Building Footprint screen.
