Unsupported DWG file..

I got this dwg file and can't open it. I got this message when AC is trying to open it. Does anyone has a solution? Thanks

The DWG file format is too new for Archicad 20 to be able to open it.
If upgrading to Archicad 22 is not an option then you can download DWG Trueview from Autodesk.
It is free and allows you to convert a DWG file to an older version that Archicad 20 can open.
Or have whoever sent you the file to save it in an older file format.
