drawing opening error

I have just created a project which gets the following errors each time
I open it relating to the CAD files used to draw the floor plan:

I have tried re-saving the drawings as LT 2010 version, going into the
.inp to erase the link to this file, and nothing seems to work. The
model has been built and I no longer need to reference the drawing -
does anyone know how to break this link?

You can go into the .PD2 file and delete the references yourself. Should
be a simple task once you locate the line that references the drawing file.

I could not find a file I had a CADD reference in to verify, but isn't
the link in the .pdl or .pd2 files rather than the .inp?

Try moving the referenced drawing to another directory. When launching the
project eQuest will display a message that the drawing cannot be found and you
have an option to skip or delete the reference. If you delete the reference,
eQuest will not repeat the message when you re-launch the project.
