Can it create a DXF or DWG file? Can it import a DXF or DWG file to work with?

Doesn't much matter. They claim "the most powerful, user friendly and maintained 2D CAD" but, apparently, it only runs on dos based systems. Not to useful.

Does not run under Windows 2000. Suggest you try elswhere. Would have suggested choiceCAD, but this is now called AllyCAD and the price is silly.

Hi,
What is wrong with you people, don't believe everything: DOS programs are running fine and very fast under Windows 2000 and XP, but they have to be placed on FAT16/32 disks and they can only access data that is stored on FAT disks, that's the only limitation. They can profit from DOS implementations in Windows 2000 and XP (yes, these systems are supporting a virtual DOS system !)
DESI-III does not support DXF or DWG. Is it of importance ? Only for some people.

Well, then, I guess it can't to DXF or DWG, then. Guess it needs some work.

Some would likely suggest this to be a rather serious limitation, in a networked environment.

In a 'sharing' world you need something in common and in CAD for good or ill it's DXF
implementations

The vast majority of "sharing" done does not have to be. In any case, in 15 years in the industry, I have neve worked for or with anyone that uses Autocad. DXF was never used. As someone else put it on here, you have a rather narrow view.

Hehehe..............as tempting as that is, I'm going to leave it alone. It's an even more boring topic. ;)

At the expense of continuing a dull subject, in my general engineering area there seems to be 95% AutoCAD, 5% 'others'. I look at component suppliers web sites and they offer me drawings of their components as DWG or DXF. It may be loathed, but AutoCAD has bums on seats. Why else was the OpenDWG Alliance formed to give access to the DWG file format.

I think I am glad I don't know what this is: "OpenDWG Alliance"

No, you should be informed. Go here:

Just remember, if you use dwg/dxf "you have a narrow view"!

No necessarily. There are other qualifications needed.

Yes, it must be a pretty dull subject. Glad I don't have your job.
