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?
Reinstallation is the simplest solution.
You may want to be a tad clearer in the future regarding version numbers. It'll simply help get answers faster. Illustrator version 5 and version 6 are drastically different than CS5 (version 15) and CS6 (version 16).
