I've got Civil3D 2010, whereas a colleague has 2013.
He back-saved a file for me (one that opens without issue on 2013) in both 2010 and 2007 formats.
Both files cause the error:
"FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0000 Exception at 50589f84h"
I'm having no trouble with other back-saved files, nor any files that were made natively in my 2010 format.
Since the "fatal error" solutions that I see on here vary so widely, I figured I'd ask before I went ahead and uninstalled unneccesarily.
Any ideas you can suggest will be greatly appreciated!
I assume you know that Civil3D data is not backwards compatible so when you say back saved files what settings are you using to "dumb" down the C3D data to plain AutoCAD elements?
I don't think there is any high-level data in the file, it is allegedly all simple line drawings and GIS points.
I don't even think there's a base-map referenced, but no- I didn't know that. I haven't been trained on 2013, so I only know what I've picked up by osmosis.
It just seemed logical to me that if there was data that wouldn't translate into 2010, the data would either be truncated or the filetype option would be absent in the Save As dialogue box. The little bit of research that I did, seemed to indicate that 2013 would push the data that would be irrelevant in a 2010 file to the sidelines, if you will, so it could be ignored by 2010 but read by another 2013 program in the future.
Thanks for your help!
