Probably like a lot of old Turbo Cad users .. I'm loathe to change ! My old Dell Laptop; Microsoft XP and Turbocad V14.2 Pro have served me well for many years... that is until the Laptop finally gave up. I purchased a refurbished HP Laptop loaded with Windows 10 but my local Computer shop has loaded a program that allows me to view as Windows 7. [ I just hate Windows 10 ] All seemed well, previous programs on the Dell ( Microsoft Word, Excel and others etc.) downloaded on to the new Laptop. The TurboCad V14.2 pro was also loaded .. however, an immediate warning appears " error occurred while file reading. Probably the file is corrupt" It asks if you want to continue. By saying "yes" drawings "open" and can be viewed. Making changes or additions to the drawing and then "save as" results in an error " error occurred while file writing- probably file is now corrupt - use "save as" with another path to prevent the original file damage " I also have Turbo Cad 15 PRO PLATINUM edition for windows Vista,7,8 Cat.code.3083. So I loaded this disc. I opened the drawing I was using ; made a few additions and saved ok. Trying to "open" this revised drawing back with V14.2 only leads to message" failed to open, file is corrupt or bad file format" Like Windows 10, I also hate the format presentation of windows15pro ! Can anyone advise how to resolve the problem with V14.2. I have erased and reloaded V14.2 on 3 occasions but the same error messages occur.
19.07.2019 Since posting this problem with no replies, I had a moment of madness and wondered if this problem had been identified before . Using "search" I found that it had as far back as 2015 !! Numerous posts advise the problem to be with OS Windows 10. and that by using Win.7 should solve the problem. I apologise if I have wasted any ones time ; I have learnt my lesson and will use the search facility in future should I have any more problems !
