I have installed Civil 3D on a new laptop and after about 1-2 minutes autocad crashes.  I have windows 8.  The computer has an AMD processor with6 Gigs of ram.

I recently purchased a new lap top as well (intel I-7) with 16 ram and 2 video.  I had no problems untill my file sizes increased.  My current working file is now 50m with 4 x-refed files adding another 550m.

 

My initial problem was Japanese error messages (a sign of installation problems?) and later fatal error messages resulting in failed recoveries.  My current work-around is to save constantly and manually copying the working file often.  Depending on workload it may be as often as ten minutes.  I keep several x-refed layers frozen as well and plot or export via truview.  Autodesk products have always had a problem freeing up memory.  Frequent "total" re-boots always helped with this and still do. 

 

I have my fingers crossed that soon we will have hot-fixes or service packs to fix this as I have to update this project in 2-4 weeks.
