To install Startup Error Hotfix
NOTE: You must have administrative privileges on your Microsoft Windows operating system to complete the installation process.

- Find the product installation folder; for example, C:\Program Files\DWG TrueView 2010
- In this folder, right-click the AdWindows.dll file and select Properties.
- Click the Version tab and confirm the file version. If the file version is less than 188.8.131.52, then proceed with this installation.

- Based on the version of your product, double-click Startup_Error_TrueView_Hotfix_32bit.zip or Startup_Error_TrueView_Hotfix_64bit.zip and extract the AcWindows.dll, AdApplicationFrame.dll, AdWindows.dll, and AdWindowsInterop.dll files to the product installation folder.
- Right-click the new AdWindows.dll file and select Properties. Click the Version tab and confirm that this file is version 184.108.40.206.
- If the ribbon does not appear when you launch DWG TrueView, you can display it by expanding the Application Menu in the upper left corner of the screen, entering RIBBON in the search field, and selecting the Show/Hide Ribbon option in the Related Results list.
- To remove this hotfix, delete the new AcWindows.dll, AdApplicationFrame.dll, AdWindows.dll, and AdWindowsInterop.dll files that you downloaded to the product installation folder, and restore the files you renamed in Step 5 to the original names.
