    Hello,

    I noticed that AutoCAD software does not work very well with my .DWG format file.
    I have one file in which i have inserted various changes. Now i am getting the error message.

    Error message: File hangs or crashes AutoCAD.

    Is there another way to open AutoCAD file?

    Try recovering by renaming the .bak file to .dwg then if it works purge the drawing. TBH it sounds like your original .dwg file has become corrupted though so it may be a do-over.
