In one file Civil 3D keeps crashing when I wan't to publish multiple layouts to pdf.

I have publish in background turned off and I am using Civil 3D 2013

 

When it crashes I get the following Error message:

FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0xddadd6d8 Exception at 771d8359h

 

Please help

So you are running the Publish command and choosing "Publish to PDF"?

And the pagesetup is configured for a different printer?

What if you only print the current layout to PDF (using the command: EXPORTPDF). Does that work?

Yes that's correct
When I use the export to pdf command autocad crashes as well

When I use the dwg to pdf plotter everythings seems to be fine

Is the publish command being used in the subject drawing and are any other drawings opend by the publish command?

 

Have you tried purging and auditing as well?

Its used on the subject drawning and its opening one xref during the publish command.

I have already purged and audited both the subject drawning and the xref

If you have background publishing enabled, turn it off.  This will allow you to see what is happening, and may even provide more meaningful error messages.

The old DwgToPDF print driver is pretty basic, it makes no effort to optimize the images or anything - just pushes them through to the pdf file.  The newer pdf drivers try to downsample large image files or do other things to reduce the output file size but they can get caught by corrupted images etc.

How does one distinguish between the old and new driver?
