Re: C3D won't start

Since you're an Admin on the machine, there's nothing that needs to be done in the registry.

 

Originally, I was going to have you right-click each of the registry hives and choose Permissions. Within the permissions area, add your account and allocate full rights.

 

However, since you already have Admin rights, there could be an AutoCAD profile issue. To reset your profile, perform the following:

 

Browse the registry and delete the following folder:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R18.2\ACAD-A000:409\

Browse windows explorer and delete the following:

  • C:\Users\<<Username>>\AppData\Local\Autodesk\C3D 2012
  • C:\Users\<<Username>>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\C3D 2012

Once these folders are deleted, start Civil 3D 2012 and those files (Autodesk Profile) will be recreated.

 

Let me know if this works.

You do remember I have a bunch of Adesk products running just fine, is this going to screw up any or all of the other applicatiions or reset the registration so I have to reregister them all again?

No, this will only effect Civil 3D 2012. :smileyhappy:

I thought that I got back with you, I guess I didn't. OK, it didn't work, still the same.

Tried everything, did a reinstall and still happens, but noticed that it flashs and crashes at the point when it says that its doing the CUI load. Then blink, flash the workspace, then nothing. Anyone???

caddman,

 

If you're running Windows 7, disable the UAC...

 

Go to the start menu, and type UAC in the search box then hit Enter. Slide the bar all the way to the bottom and reboot your system.

 

If this doesn't resolve the issue, browse to the following location and delete all of the files beginning with "adskflex_":

 

Windows 7 directory:

  • C:\ProgramData\FLEXnet\

Windows XP directory:

  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\
