What does this mean:

1173 prj\lib\DRW\DWGdirectWriter.cpp 17 Key Not Found

I have been deleting layers from a fairly large drawing. Using MSCAD2009 SP1.

Hi, this basically means the program is having problems writing out something that is in your dwg file. If you have a current maintenance subscription, please go to and submit a tech support ticket, and attach a copy of your dwg file to the ticket.
