Had a fatal error and sent the report to Autodesk which I don't usually do because I've never heard a response.....anyways the report comes back that I need service pack 2.1.
So I download and install the service pack, well now certain profiles which include pipe networks are skewed as if the alignment has moved thousands of feet, the grid is stretched off to the side even though I did nothing to the profile stationing, or the alignment stationing, just went in to change a profile label.
I asked others in the office to open the same drawing I was working in and they do not see the profile doing this stretch.
I turned the computer settings back a few days to allow for un-install of the service pack, civil 3D didn't like that either and won't open so had to do a total un-install and re-install.
Now when I open the drawing the profile is fine..........
will send a back charge to Autodesk for beta testing the service pack
Hi - I had fatal issue with the service pack as well. All of my hydrographs for swm disappeared upon install. I have contacted Autodesk and they said they are working on it. Wasted a half of day or more of my time doing a install, trouble shoot then unistall and reinstall. It is ridculous. This was a few months ago and I have heard nothing since.
Presume you mean Hotfix 2??
I had issues with this as well after I installed the Hotfix and rebooted. I had to repair the install, not reinstall, thank goodness.
It would be very helpful if everyone in this thread could confirm if they are writing about C3D 2012 and Update 2.1 and not about any other C3D release/update/hotfix?
To the OP: Would you be able to provide us a data set we can use to reproduce the profile/pipe networks problem you mentioned with C3D 2012 Update 2.1?
Yes, sorry, C3D 2012 SP 2.1. I had issues right after the install & reboot. The app failed to launch. A repair fixed it.
I also had an issue with C3D 2013 Hotfix 2 doing the same thing. A repair fixed that as well.
I have both installed on my workstaton, no other versions.
I have an active case with Subscription Support because of a similar issue, except that mine is related to corridor feature lines that display differently after SP 2.1 is installed.
I posted in this thread about seeing the problem in 2013 first, but it has now appeared in 2012 after installation of SP2.1.
The two screenshots show the same drawing as it appears upon opening - no redraw, regen, corridor rebuild or anthing else. These are from the same computer. The only difference is that the second view is after installing the SP. Notice the feature lines that skip across from one corridor section to another one on the alignment.
We have also had major errors since installing this Pack including fatal errors, locking up, changed colors of alignments, etc. It is very frustrating and repairing the Pack has not worked. So here we sit with our hands up, hmm... reinstall Autocad or wait and see if they come out with a fix... either way we just lost a lot of time... Thanks for keeping us proficient!
I'm getting ready to test SP2.1 and was wondering if everyone is still having the issues pointed out in this thread?
