. TIP FROM AUTODESK: FIND A FILE'S PARENT AUTOCAD VERSION
To determine the version of AutoCAD that created a particular DWG or DXF
open the file as a text editor (save DXF files in ASCII text format first).
The first six bytes of a DWG file identify its version. In a DXF file, the
AutoCAD version number is specified in the header section. The DXF system
variable is $ACADVER. Here are the version identifiers for the various
releases. Note that more than one release uses the same identifier when the
drawing format remains fully compatible.
AC1018: AutoCAD 2004
AC1015: AutoCAD 2002, 2000i, 2000
AC1014: AutoCAD Release 14 (Release 14 sample drawings use AC1013)
AC1012: AutoCAD Release 13
AC1009: AutoCAD Releases 12, 11
AC1006: AutoCAD Release 10
AC1004: AutoCAD Release 9
AC1002: AutoCAD Release 2.6
AC1.50: AutoCAD Release 2.05
Sorry mabey I wasn't clear... I am tring to install a Service Pack...
I don't need to know a Version a Drawing was made from. I need to know which
Version The Actual AutoCad 2002LT is. It will not let me enter the "ACADVER"
command in the command line. It says unknown command. According to Autodesk
this is the way to find what I need but it will NOT accept it.
