Illustrator should open your drawing file.

 

What version of Illustrator?

I have Illustrator CS2 and you have to save the drawing to vers R14 to get them in Illustrator CS2.

 

You might look at Inkscape, it will open a R13 dxf from Autocad and is FREE open source.

I've done this many times before. I knew Illustrator way before I learned AutoCAD.

I assume you mean Illustrator CS6? Illustrator 6 was released in 1996.

 

I have Illustrator CS5 and I can open 2007 format dwg's, although I do get a warning about object attributes not being preserved. I can still open the dwg though.

 

2004 format opens just fine, with no warning messages.
