ADMINISTRATOR COMMENT:

We have received a lot of request to fix the DWGPREV.OCX issue below. In the future a fix will be added to this program but for now you can use the solution below. 

There seem to be issues with the DWGPREV.OCX file. To solve this issue use the following guide

1. Download DWGPREV.zip here (and extract the DWGPREV.OCX)

2. Locate the file using windows explorer or My Computer. Alternatively search for the filename.

3. Hold down the shift key and right click on the file. Then click 'Open With...' from the menu.

4. An 'Open With' dialog box should appear. Click the button 'Other...'.

5. Navigate to your windows\system32 directory and select the file 'RegSvr32.exe'. Do a file search for it if you have trouble locating the exact folder. On Windows 2000 it is typically located in c:\WINNT\System32. Click Open to select the file. Then click OK on the 'Open With' dialog.

6. You should see a message indicating the file was successfully registered. If you see an error message, try restarting your computer and going through the above process again.
