JPGs spontaneously disappear

It must be Raster Image Day on the discussion groups...


ACAD Architecture installed as 32-bit on Win 7 64 bit machines w 12 gig ram. My users are using that g.d. CAP studio program, hence the 32 bit install.  SP1 is installed as are hotfixes for Ribbon and Dimension issues. 


Here's what's happening: most of the time we have no issues with raster images attached to the files.  However, every once and a while one of the images decides to not show up.  In XREF manager, everythings fine - the paths to raster images are correct (shared network path).  The files are loaded, the insertion layers are on. You can close out of AutoCAD and come back in - sometimes the image pops back in.


Even though these are plot settings, I have RASTERPERCENT set to 80, and Raster Threshold set to 120 (although the size of most of these images is around 100k)


Anyone know if this is a known issue with 32 bit installs of ACAD?

Did you eliminate the more common errors?

- The image resides on a layer that is turned off/frozen.

- The image is off: turn on the imageframe, select it and turn SHOW IMAGE back on using PROPERTIES.

Thanks for the input.


After doing some testing, I've concluded that the problem is the "unnatural" install of Autocad as a 32-bit app on a 64 bit system.
