I am using AutoCAD Mechanical 2010 and I have been getting the following message when trying to open a .dwg file.
"FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0018 Exception at 49278842h"
Then AutoCAD crashes. This error does not come up when I just open AutoCAD only when I open the file. I am running Windows 7 x64 and haven't had any luck tracking down a solution so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
>> This error does not come up when I just open AutoCAD only when I open the file.
One specific file or while opening any file?
If it's just one specific file then I suggest that this file has defects, you can try to open it then using command _RECOVER (or if it's holding XRef's use command _RECOVERALL).

BTW: the mechanical forum is placed >>>there<<<
Sorry I didn't realize there was a mechanical forum, I will move the post there if you like? So far it has just been the one file and I tried your suggestions but I was unable to recover it. Another weird thing is the file works fine on a coworkers computer that is also using AutoCAD Mechanical 2010.

maybe you have different servicepacks installed (or different object-enablers).
Look with command _ABOUT to your exact revision and compare those two pc's
>> I was unable to recover it
If your coworker starts the command _RECOVER with this drawing, does that find any database-defects?
>> I will move the post there if you like?
It's not my wish that you move it, but I think you will get more Mechanical-specific answers there.
So ... for the next question ... .

-It looks like we are both running version D.309.0.0
-When opened on the other computer with _RECOVER there were 11 errors but all resolved:
156 Blocks audited
Total errors found 11 fixed 11
Erased 0 objects"

And when this drawing is saved after the repair, can you open it then on your pc`?
BTW: do you have the same memory-amount built in your pc's? (and about the same tasks running, so the memory available for AutoCAD is equal)?

When trying to open the new file I get a different location on the error:
"FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x00be Exception at 49390798h"
and when I try to recover the new file I get this:
"FATAL ERROR: Out of memory - shutting down"
I have 4GB of RAM but my coworker only has 2GB of RAM. Also I just realized my coworker is on Windows XP as well.
>> I have 4GB of RAM but my coworker only has 2GB of RAM
That sounds strange, 2GB can work more stable than 4GB?
If you are firm with AutoCAD profiles try to export the profile from the workstation that does it's work ok and import this profile at your workstation. Make sure you have backuped your data before you import a new profile!
