AutoCAD 2012 and Windows 7

I have just received a new computer which is running windows 7 and have upgraded to autoCAD 2012, I have had nothing but problems. First of all, all the temp files are saving direct into the working file instead of to the local drive (it seems that all the file directories point to the local drive but it is not saving here for some reason) Secondly, I am having issues with the 'syncing' of files with windows 7 and it only appears to be with autoCAD files, I am saving them to the network but they can not be seen by anyone else not running windows 7, not even in explorer - I am saving autoCAD files as 2007. My computer has also started running extremely slow - not sure if this is windows 7 or autoCAD 2012??

 

Has anyone had these issues or know how to deal with them? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

I am having similar issues on my network.  I have stand alone versions of ACAD but keep my support files on a network drive for everyone to be able to use the same support files.  Have you been able to fix your slow down issues on your Windows 7 machine?  I've seen several things to try, but haven't gotten any of them to work - have you?

Hi, I have managed to fix the temp file issues. Was all to do with windows 7 syncing. I still have not got to the bottom of the slowness, sometimes it is fine and works well and other times it is painfully slow, has nothing to do with the file sizes or anything - it may be the network and the solution from our IT guys has been to save the files locally, however, when you work on 20 different files a day, this gets really frustrating. The files I am working with are very simple and have very small file size so I am unsure why the network or the system has trouble dealing with them?? Still struggling!!

I've had all manner of issues with Windows 7 and 2012.  Most seem to stem around Windows C+++ something or another.

After much frustration I managed to get 2012 working with a C+++ work around fix through the guidance of this forum.

Now Microsft has changed the what ever C+++ thingy. While it may be coincidence, and unrelated, 2012 is crashing and performance is really poor.

My PC, while on a network, saves all files on the machine so it istn't network related in my case.

No, not really. It seems to depend on the file and it is certainly best to avoid lofting circles into rectangles (and pretty much most of the tasks you would use lofting for) if possible as these seem to kill performance most notably.

I need to include locking up at he command line to the slow responce of Window 7-64 / Autocad Architecture 2012. New machine with 2 zeon processors, 12gb rams, 2gb video and a SSD hard drive and my old xp-64/ACA2011 would run circles around it. I've tried running from network and stand alone neither helps. Rebooting 2-3 times a week, may be 2013 will help.

Sorry my friend.

We have a same problem.  It seem Autocad2012 VS Windows 7 not coordinated. 

Example:  Loading Tool Bar/Tool Palettes.  Searching for Plot, layer, Profiles, xref, etc...  I'm still working on it seen (2) two weeks.  I even try Unistalled-Reinstalled still same problem.  But i narrow it down a little by little.  The only problem i still have now "Search Path".  I think this where the problem!!!  Soon i have more infor. i'll repost for all to share.

PS.  I want my Aucad2010 back!!!

Wish all of us luck!

Thanks.
