AutoCAD file Display

Dear All,

I want to View AutoCAD file in SAP without any CAD integration. Just a display as how a pdf file opens with a ECL viewer.

I have added extension *.dwg in DC30 in ACD workstation application. Now, i can attached DWG file but not able view. It gives following error -

"The file does not have a program associated with for performing this action. Create as association in the folder Options control panel."

Let me know the solution for this.

Also, let me know if any config docment avialabe for same.

    To view file type DWG (auto cad files ) you need ECL viewer. This is installed as add on option along with SAP gui in your frontend system. This is a neutral viewer and supports lot of filef ormats including DWG format. The file opens in display mode. Autocad is not required in your front end for this purpose.

    In order to associate this ECL viewer following customizing is required.

    In DC 30 for WS ACD goto 'Define workstation application in network' and create a new entry with the following values

    Data Carrier Type = PC

    Application type = 1

    Path with prog. name = EAIWeb.webviewer2D.1 %SAP-CONTROL%
