AutoCAD 2011 (& 2010) FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading ...

If anyone would be able to assist me with the following problem, it would be most appreciated.

 

I'm trying to open a drawing file, and every time I do, I receive this message:

 

FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0xd92123c2 Exception at 1675dc8h

 

The problem occurs on at least 2 machines, in either AutoCAD 2010 or AutoCAD 2011.

 

Both machines are running 32-bit XP Pro SP3 w/ 4GB RAM.

 

I attempted to follow the instructions here: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=11322398&linkID=9240617 but the drawing file does NOT have a digital signature (option doesn't show up in Windows Explorer shortcut menu).

 

AutoCAD 2006 running on one of the machines will open the file without any problems. I verified in 2006 that the dwg does NOT have digital signatures with the SIGVALIDATE command. Also ran Audit & Purge commands in 2006 to check for any errors and rec'd none. Using Drawing Recovery in 2010 or 2011 does not work either.

 

I have searched the knowledge base and Autodesk forums extensively for a solution and have found nothing. I submitted a detailed report to Autodesk with this same information and am awaiting a response there also.

 

Thank you for your time.

You might try renaming your backup file to dwg and then try to open that. I would make a copy of your bak. file first.

Thanks for the suggestion. I did as you suggested and I was able to open the drawing once.

 

It prompted me to cancel the open due to errors and run the Recovery (I elected not to do so since every attempt at recovery has failed so far).

 

I then ran an Audit & Purge to see if anything was wrong and of course it found nothing. I then saved the drawing file and closed it.

 

Tried opening it again and rec'd another FATAL ERROR. Tried to repeat the above process and it failed again.

 

It may just be that the file is corrupted beyond repair, but hopefully there's a solution out there.

Just a thought, but try saving it as a DXF file and then reading that file back into AutoCAD. This has worked for me on occasion.

Same result as renaming the .bak file. I was able to get in once and it still asked to Recover the drawing due to errors.

 

What I ended up doing was to open the drawing in 2006, copy everything in Model space from 0,0,0 and paste into a new drawing in 2011, then simply re-create the viewport(s).

 

I guess it was simply a corrupt drawing, since the new file opens with no trouble at all.

 

Thanks again for all the suggestions!

FYI

 

When you want to duplicate a layout in another drawing, right click on the layout tab in the destination drawing and create a new tab 'From a Template' and you can then select the source drawing and the exact layout tab you want to import.
