Hi Guys
Having a problem opening dwg files in Visio 2016 Pro, has anyone experienced the same problem? if so how were you able to resolve the issue.

I've also been trying to open some DWG files, out of about 20, only 2 will open. When they do open the shape gets the LockDelete attribute set.

If you have ACAD, resaving the DWG to 2007 compatibility seems to work best for visio in my experience
