Fixing eDrawings SOLIDWORKS Document Manager Issue

eDrawings is free software that lets you view and print eDrawings (eDRW, ePRT, eASM), native SOLIDWORKS documents (sldprt, sldasm, slddrw) , DXF, and DWG format files.

The eDrawings Viewer is intended primarily for people who do not use CAD software and thus do not need to publish eDrawings files themselves. This means people can use this program even if they don’t have SOLIDWORKS. But some people might see following error while running eDrawings on their machine.

    When I click on the “SOLIDWORKS Document Manager” link you have above, I get a webpage with the message “File not found”. I get the same message when I click on the “download and install” link in the warning that pops up from eDrawings. Do you have any suggestions?
