Default using layout with visual tool

hi all,

I've created a model with a layout drawing in it. The layout has been imported in a DXF file format (with origin as its coordinates) using visual tool.

When I try to open the model in any other pc and take the source file also (i.e.., the dxf file) along with it.... The model is alright but the layout is not being seen...

How do I get access to the layout???

What can I do to overcome this trouble....

the layout was on a visual tool?. if so, just open the visual tool properties from the treeview and update the location of the .dxf file
