Saving as a DWG

Why does Turbocad 2017 Pro Plat not save architectural drawings as a DWG or a DXF all it does is crash the program. If I want to save it I have to take it to an older version.

I have saved several drawings as DWG without crashing, but they didn't have Architectural features, so I created one.

I had no problems either Saving As DWG, or Open Dwg.  Both files are included here.

Only a few of the Architectural features were used.  I did not add a Slab, Roof Slab or Roof, let alone the second floor indicated by the stairs, so you should upload your own TCW file for us to experiment if you want to track down the cause of the problem.

This hasn't happened to me for a while - with previous versions I found that moving the objects into a new drawing helped.
You could also try changing the version of dwg you are saving to.
