Can't open downloaded .dxf files

Post by Buckmaster1967 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 8:40 pm

Hello,
When I download a .dxf file from here, I get error messages. Same when I try to import to Inkscape. I am using Inkscape 1.0.1. Can anyone help me here?

Sounds like maybe an incomplete install.
It says to try starting inkscape an open the file instead of clicking on the file directly.

Thanks for taking time to try to help. Had high hope. Uninstalled Inkscape, ran a cleaner, and a register cleaner. Reinstall Inscape 1.0.1. Same results.

The link says the guy had to manually delete the files. The uninstall and cleaner didn't get them.
