I have installed the new 2015 version of Advance Steel without errors. But when I run the program all I get is AutoCAD without Advance Steel. The only message that pops up briefly says that the specified drawing cannot be found. What drawing is the program looking for? The default template drawing is in the right folder and AutoCAD support options point to that folder. I can see that the Advance Steel menus start to load, then the message displays and they disappear.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Russ,

Autodesk Advance Steel runs is compliant with Graitec Advance CAD 2015 and Autodesk AutoCAD 2013, 2014, and 2015. If you have an earlier version of AutoCAD for example AutoCAD 2011 or 2012 you will have these issues. Also remember once you open a  AS 2014 drawing in with AS 2015 you will no longer be able to open it up in AS 2014 so make up a backup.

Hope this helps,

Best Regards,


Janet Black
