I keep on getting the fatal error messages like FATAL ERROR: unhandled Access Violation Reading 0xffffffff Exception at 1a89fc50h, when doing simple commands such as move, copy or selecting objects. It has also occurred when I've tried to save. They can occur up to 4 times a day and as you can imagine it can get quiet annoying.
I have tried emptying my temp folders and I've ensured my copy of AutoCAD 2011 LT is up to date but these are only temporary solutions as a few days later they will appear again.
Does anyone know a why to prevent these error messages from occurring
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes some of the drawings where first created in an earlier version, as some of them are nearly 10 years old.
I've attached the latest drawing that I've had an error message occur whilst I've been trying to complete it. The error message that I got was on my previous post.
Sorry I forgot one thing, this first started to happen when I had to convert Microstation drawing (.hln files) into AutoCAD files, either as .dwg or .dxf.
Although now it the error messages appear if I'm using an AutoCAD files.
I just Copied, Moved, Copy/Paste, etc. w/o issue
I wanted to see the plan in case there were excess Filters or Scale Lists. These were clean
Audit reported no errors.
The drawing is missing the XREF that is attached to it.
Have you tried detaching the XREF and making sure that it is clean as well?
I've checked teh x-ref and it's clean - I'm the only person in the office's who gets these error messages.
I've had a few error messages when I've just closed a drawing, this happened today with the one that I posted the other day.
Sounds like it is time to start over.
Back up all Customizations first.
If you are allowed, grab this program REVO UNINSTALLER (Free Version) and use its most aggressive setting on the AutoCAD install. Then check thru the registry with the advice below.
