Unable to Import Auto Cad Files into Wireless Control System (WCS)


When trying to import an Autocad file into WCS, getting the following error:

Unable to convert the auto-cad file. Reason: Error while loading the auto-cad image conversion library. (no Ax2008Dll in java.library.path). Please refer online or WCS documentation for more information.

Found  the following files are missing:





The documentation says to rectify the issue:  If there are any dependency issues, fix them by installing the required libraries for missing dependencies and then restart WCS.

But, for the life of me, I cannot find an installer that will fix this.  I have the latest


1.     Stop WCS Service.

2.     Under <WCS INSTALL DIR>/webnms/lib there should be 2 files as AxConverter.dll and AxConverter.lib2. Rename the files as

  • AxConverter.lib to Ax2008Dll.lib
  • AxConverter.dll to Ax2008Dll.dll


    3.     Power cycle WCS server
