You only have layer base visible in the Pspace Base, see Attached, whatever layer you want to see you need to check first in the viewports Property >> ViewPort >> Visible Layers

As an addendum to this,
I can only create viewports if the object is in layer 0 and not on it's own layer.
If I then move the object to another layer some of the Objects in the viewport disappear from paper space, then when I make another layer visible all the objects in that paperspace disappear except the dimensions which were placed on the drawing.  This is quite random, because the second time I tried this all the objects disappeared.
I am also getting most peculiar dimensions in paperspace, 76.04mm for a 50mm rad. and 15.21mm for a 10mm dia hole.

Anyone got any ideas what is going on?

TC21 Pro.

That is because of your Security setting or similar, you dont get acces to change the extension name  .exe
Are you running windows as Admin ?
It will not help if you only can change the filename and not the type of file as is where.OLD should go.

Hi.  Any chance you could post a little gif or png image of the icon,  (jpg can distort small images).  also is it on a palette, one of the toolbars or a warning dialog.

Offhand I cannot think of such an icon, but maybe others can.

Hi Torfinn, On my install of that update if I change the file name as suggested it just blanks the popup window and moves it behind the Turbocad start page. The file name does not end in .exe, but does not matter if I add .exe.OLD or just OLD. Any suggestions as it's surprisingly annoying. Thanks, John

I had to Uninstall my  Turbo cad 16  and installed Turbo CAD 19 and 21  Now can not open all my old files.  I can NOT save them as a DWG file as i can not open them!  I no longer have the Turbo 16 program.  can any one help me?  I have attached my file. If anyone can open it and save it as a DWG file or better as a Turbocad 19 file and send it to me I would be very happy.


Did you attach the right file? There's at all nothing in the drawing.
