DWG to PDF Fatal Error

While opening a DWG file I get the error message:
"One error was found in the drawing file during open. Would you like to cancel this open?
It is recommended you cancel the open and then run the RECOVER command on the drawing file"
(Attachment 1)
If I ignore this message and try to convert to PDF I get:
"FATAL ERROR: Unhandled c0000417h Exception at 2b22d57ch"
(Attachment 2)
If I recover the drawing "Errors found: 210 / Errors fixed: 210 / Objects erased: 1" but the error for the PDF creation remains the same.
(Attachment 3)

I already tried to reinstall AutoCAD - same error.
