Windows 7 32-bit
One of our designers seems to break AutoCAD a couple times a month. This time she really did a number on it. Anyone can log on her computer (admin or not) and AutoCAD will launch fine. However, if she tries to launch AutoCAD, absolutly nothing hoppens. Everything I find online always refrences what to do if you see the splach screen and AutoCAD does not launch, but this is not the case. I've repaired as admin using my creditnals, gave her admin rights and tried the same thing. I've reinstalled both ways stated above. Uninstalled the program deleted all the autocad user profile files and reinstalled and still not a thing. I probably spent a good four hours on it with no results. I'm about to wipe her hard drive and start from scratch unless someone has an idea...
Any help would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Try to follow these steps to initiate the secondary installer, that will reset all settings for this user (>>>check this<<<)
>> Anyone can log on her computer (admin or not) and AutoCAD will launch fine
Then I would try to let "anyone" log in to the computer, start AutoCAD, export the profile (command _OPTIONS, tab "profiles"), that creates a ARG-file. Then you can login back with the non-functional user account, create a AutoCAD-start icon that uses the "/p" parameter (profile) and give this ARG-file as parameter for the profile.
Good luck, - alfred -
