Good morning,


C3D crash and I reinstalled.  Entered an activation code given to me by Autodesk because serial number was not recoginized.  After I entered activation code I received an error message that stated:


"Autodesk component has stopped working...A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available"


Then C3D gets hung up and I have to close it out.

Try getting civil 3d to run the secondary installer again.


Do a search of the forum or check the Autodesk site for "Resolving user specific issues by resetting AutoCAD Civil 3D 2012" -
