Autocad 2013 shuts down after closing a drawing

The program shuts down every time I save and close a drawing; this way I am loosing any other drawing that is still open.

I am working on a 64bit Widows7.

 

Thanks,

 

Stefan

Hello

 

1) Please Open your DWGs in RECOVER Mode and then RE-Save them ...

 

2) Have you installed the SP 1.1 for ACAD 2013 ?

What do you have for SDI variable? 0 or 1

Try 1 and you may not loose any drawings that are opened if it crashed.

Hi, With SDI set to 1, when the program crushed I did not loose any other drawing. The downsize is that I cannot export in pdf format unless I revert to sdi setting 0. I have no choice but to work this way. Thanks for your help, Stefan Taina Ph.D. Landscape Designer John D.
