Crash while Setting Working Folder for Data Shortcuts

229 Views, 5 Replies

I have been using the same Working Folder and Data Shortcuts since January of this year.  My AutoCAD crashed yesterday and ever since then I haven't been able to reset my working folder.  When I select the correct folder, one that I have been using for the past 8 months, the program just freezes and will do absolutely nothing for as long as I will let it sit.  I even tried selecting a parent and child folder of the shortcuts folder, just to double check I was selecting the correct folder.  When I select the wrong folder, nothing happens, but when I select the correct folder, the program locks up.  

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Not sure if there is some registry error that has happened that I can fix, or some other simple solution.

I would suggest that you open a support request with Autodesk.

i'd try a install repair before getting into a support request.

I'd look for (using Windows Explorer) a wonky folder or file in the Working Folder. It sounds like C3D is trying to read the folder and is hitting a stumbling block there.

Process Monitor ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645 ) from Microsoft is a to help diagnose what is going on with any process...you may want to try using that to see what is going on when the app appears hung or just before crashing.
