Hi Sheila,

You can give ACDSee a shot. I'm not sure if it opens DXF files but I'm sure it supports all the other ones you've mentioned. There's a free 30-day trial you can download at:

Also take a look at a free viewer called IrfanView, http://irfanview.com/. It will open all the files you've listed with the exception of the Adobe Illustrator (.ai) and cdr files. Here's the list of supported file types: http://www.irfanview.com/main_formats.htm

ACDsee's list of supported files is here: http://files.acdsystems.com/english/acdsee/manuals/acdsee70-userguide.pdf on page 184. It also will not open the ai and cdr files.

Hi sheila54603,

You may like Xnview, a free viewer:


Here is a list of file formats it supports:


..it will support .ai files.. It indicates it needs ghostscript (there is a link to obtain that at the bottom of the page) for those files.
