    How to open .dwg file in Illustrator 6?

    artracer Community Member

      I am unable to open .dwg files  in Illustrator 5 & 6 on my new Macbook Pro (OS 10.7.4). I get an error message "the plugin cannot be initialized for the lack of the initialization file "ADINI.DAT"." This computer  had AI transferred using Apple's Setup Assistant.

       

      I can open the same .dwg file on an different MacBook Pro in both AI 5 & 6 (the AI installation here was by disk).

       

      It looks like I may need to remove & reinstall AI on the newer computer. But before I do that I'm wondering if there's an easier way. What do I need to do to be able to open .dwg files using AI6?
