My civil3d has been crashing with win8 after 45secs-1:00min from start-up with a drawing of a file size about 880kb. However, I have found a strange way of fixing it and was very coincidental. All I did was open the properties of a point in my drawing. I am positive this stops my civil3d from crashing but here is a list of other things I have done...
PROGRAM COMPATIBILITY SET TO WINDOWS 7 IN PROPERTIES WHEN RIGHT CLICKING ON THE ICON
SET USER ACCOUNTS ACCESS OFF(BAR ALL THE WAY DOWN)
DO NOT CLOSE WELCOME SCREEN (WAIT FOR THE WELCOME SCREEN TO BE SETTLED ABOUT A FEW MINS???)
KEPT PROPERTIES IN CIVIL3D OPENED AT ALL TIMES
ALSO MADE CREATE POINTS BAR PINNED
Forgive my ignorance, but which SP1 are you saying about? AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 Service Pack 1? I've read what was written about this SP1 it but there's nothing about it supports Win 8.
I did everything you've recommended and I installed AutoCAD Civil 3D 2013 Service Pack 1.
I don't know which one helped may be both. But I've tryed few simple things and it's working!
I want to thank everyone for the help
hello i see ur problem in the program civil 3d
did u find any solution for this problem please reply me quickly coz i have the same problem and iam soo disapointed
Search the group. there have been may posts on this subject including today. Why are you disappointed? Because a program that isn't supported under Windows 8 doesn't run well on it. That should have pretty much been expected.
Don't by hardware or an OS and hope your programs will run on it. Buy what you know will run the programs that are important to you.

Buy a FAST computer. Install a SSD as your main drive.
I just built a cad station for $600 with a i5 3570, 8 GB Ram, 120gb SSD and ON-BOARD intell HD 4000 graphics.
Runs 2 monitors great. All I her from the 2 tech's that use it is that it is smoother than any of the other pc's.
Could we stop with all the Windows 8/Civil 3D posts?
It may or may not work and is not supported.
If people want to talk computers specs start a new thread please.
