AutoCAD 2013 on Windows 7 64 bit crashes on startup

After installing the student edition of AutoCAD 2013 for school, I've been met with the following message upon starting the program:

"Unhandled access violation at 0xffffffff exception at f8770004h."

The program then exits and offers to alert Autodesk.

Does anyone have a workaround?

Update your video card to a certified driver.  Then if you still have issues, and your AutoCAD is up-to-date on patches, then you might need to reinstall your .NET Framework.

.NET Framework issues can be resolved using the .NET Framework Cleanup Tool. More information about this tool can be found at my discussion thread here:

Good Luck!
