I usually navigate through the file/open window to the location of the .bak (usually a backup folder) and click on the file to open it with the cad program. I assume this didn't work for you? Are you getting a notice that no filter exists for the file?
mic, while i appreciate your enthusiasm to help, the issue was a windows issue not an Ac issue, essentially making it a non issue now. calling leading design software Crap because of this proclivity is like saying getting laid sucks cause you're gonna have to talk to the b!tch
Don't take it so personal boys...it's not like you authored the software. AC creates the .bak file and stores it in a backup subfolder in the AC folder I think. I'm not sure because I quit using AC years ago and use an el cheapo cad program that opens .bak files it creates. :whistling
