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.
