Table edit - Undefined shape

One of my colleagues has been getting an "undefined shape 0" error any time he edits a table. This happens both when he creates the table and when he edits an existing table. Any typing will result in a blank dialog box, with a blinking cursor, awaiting text input, and upon any keystroke, ADT returns a large number of undefined shape errors, all "undefined shape 0"

One strange thing is that he can create and edit mtext just fine, no errors. The font files referenced are in their correct folder, which is referenced under the proper support file path.

The table errors occur using ANY font or shape file, not just the default.

Furthermore, the drawing will crash upon selecting some specific fonts or shapes.

The table edits work just fine on our other machines with similar configurations.


He is running under this configuration:

ADT2005 Win7(64bit) NVIDIA Quadro 2000, with all hotfixes and Service packs installed, and up-to-date graphics drivers.


His Autodesk install is a clean install on a new computer, but may be referencing old DNA from his 32-bit XP system, from which his settings were transferred when upgrading to the new machine. I'm not sure if this is helpful, but I thought I would include it.


Any ideas?

UPDATE - A reinstall of ADT after a registry cleaning fixed this issue.
