I would like to state for the third or fourth time that I work for a leading engineering firm that puts millions of dollars into our computing tools. If we're still going to blame the computers, or network, then I guess we're all stuck and there is no hope for a stable AutoCAD or an AutoCAD vertical application.
I, too work for a very large multi-national corporation with many hundreds of computers and several hundred installs of AutoCAD. I, too, have many years experience with AutoCAD (26) and many years experience with computers (1968), and it boils down to a very simple conclusion. If the application runs fine on one machine and not the other, the difference is probably hardware. Figure out the difference in hardware and your problem is mostly solved. This is not the first AutoCAD release that requires a specific hardware profile and it probably will not be the last. Of course the same can be said for most applications of this level of complexity.
Mike has graciously offered his assistance. Post your specs and setup and maybe he can provide some direction.
Your constructive reply is quite welcome. Thank you.
I was signing on to tell everyone that my AutoCAD, C3D, MEP NEVER crashes. Never ever.
I think that If I had started this discussion with that then we would have had a more accurate response and a wider profile of users begging to differ.
AutoCAD and all vertical aplications based on AutoCAD are completely stable and only crash because my company's choice of network and desktop hardware, and to top it off, I am personally responsible for Autodesk products failing so often. I don't know why I make AutoCAD crash so often, but I do. I should see a shrink about this.
I am to blame. My company is to blame and the hardware that I use is to blame. I am so sorry to have blamed AutoCAD for why AutoCAD fails so often. I am such a bad user. BAD USER, BAD!
