Hi! dont know if this error has been fix, dont know the solution for Mac users but this solved my problem...

 

Fix common plugin issues with any of these solutions:
  • Update external plugins to their latest version and relaunch Illustrator. 
    If the problem persists, use the next solution. 
  • Repair Visual C++ DLL (Windows) 
    1. Go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features.
    2. Right-click Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable (2012-2017) and choose Repair.

Restart your computer and open Illustrator.

Hi @momentumf83809497 @nedor61974754 @stevej53986854,

 

We are sorry to hear about your experiences. This is not the experience we want you to have. This generally happens when updates don't install correctly, or preferences get corrupted. On Windows machines, this could also happen due to corruption in Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable or the required version is not installed.

- Run Illustrator in Rosetta mode.

Sorry to reply this late. Problem has been solved just by reinstalling Windows 10 LTSC from Microsoft. It seems something missing. Maybe some crucial component from the system. Company use Ghost to install Windows. It causes this issue. In the end, thank you all.

Hi All @lizzzzz2013 @maffk @greensusie51,

 

We are sorry for the trouble. I would like to inform you that we updated RealDWG from the 2022 version to RealDWG 2023 to fix an issue. RealDWG 2023 is only supported for macOS 10.15 or later, so now you have the following options to resolve the issue:

1. Upgrade to macOS 10.15 or newer.

2. Upgrade Illustrator to recent version 26.3.1

3. Install an older version, i.e., v25.4.5.

 

Kindly update the discussion if you still need assistance with it. We'd b

I have the same issue, and see this safe mode message as well.  When I go to the plug in folder, the plugin is there and installed. Even reinstalling Illustrator did not fix it either.

What gives?

Same. Deleted and installed older versions of Illustrator, and still does show the option for DXF and DWG export options. And yes, the DxfDwgFileFormat.aip plug-in IS installed. Is there a way to get JUST the older version of  the DxfDwgFileFormat.aip that worked, and manually replace my current DxfDwgFileFormat.aip with the older one?

I found a way to avoid this situation. Not a solution really. I tried to reinstall my work computer with Win10 ltsc(from official) and problem solved. I don't know why, maybe it just some files missing. FYI, our company using this gold master to install this PC is sh1t. No doubt.

Again thx for your replying.

Unfortunately that won't work for me or the original poster, as we use Macs.

 

Can someone from Adobe please address this? this seems to be a common issue - see this other post https://community.adobe.com/t5/illustrator-discussions/error-loading-plugins-dxfdwg-file-format-aip/...

 

It says that it is 'solved' but I believe the problem there is not addressed, as the linked 'solution' involves a problem starting when someone was writing/editing their own plugins and thus messing around with XCode, etc. However, my problem, and the problem with other users, is that this error started appearing for no reason at all, with no messing around with plugins whatsoever. All we did was update or continue to use Illustrator as we had before.

I have this issue and cannot use Illustrator now. I have done nothing, it just popped up just like the original post. I have sincerely had enough of Illustrator not working. We pay so much money for Creative Cloud, never are we allowed to only use the programs we need as designers for a cheaper rate, but one of the main programs we need never works! I swear I only get one good day from illustrator out of months. ADOBE IT IS TIME TO FIX ILLUSTRATOR FOR GOOD!!

Uninstalling 25.4.6 and installing 25.3.1 seemed to fix the problem. My colleague had the same issue using 25.4.1, so there didn't seem much point installing any version of 25.4.
