From AutoCAD Civil 3D 2009, it's and oldie but a classic nonetheless.

Funny you should ask?

 

There is no dialog box - acad simply locks up if I try to use the calculator in the properties dialog box.

Thank you

I don't recall what I was doing, but Civil 3D returned this error:

It gets funnier!  I clicked "Yes", and then got this error:

@Joe,

I had that one too. It turned out that the calculator box had moved off the screen. Try the ALT+SAPCE then M then arrow trick to get it back.

We used to call it the QED. Quick Exit to DOS. Program disappeared and left you at a DOS prompt. Now I supposed its a QEW(indows).

 

I do have a more recent one. I tried to install 2012 from a network deployment. I got an error during the install but hit continue. When I try to run I get an error that it fails a "Side by Side comparison". But it doesn't tell what it's comparing. The program wouldn't run and I couldn't Uninstall it. I removed it manually following the Clean Install procedure. But it fails.

@Kirk

 

Thanks a ton. I was getting silly frustrated over that.
