Applicable Products : IJCAD 2015 / 2016


When IJCAD is installed, the association of DWG is set to IJCAD automatically.

If you use also AutoCAD in the same PC and you want to associate DWG to AutoCAD, follow the next procedure.


  1. Select the DWG file and right click the mouse.
  2. Now select "Open With " - "Choose default program" in the pop up menu.

  3. Check "Always open .dwg file with this application" in the displayed menu and select "AutoCAD DWG Launcher". 

This is all to change the association to AutoCAD.

If you want to return to associate to IJCAD, select "IJCAD Launcher" in Step "item 3" above.
