10 Crashes per day... not too bad. Can I buy that computer????

 

Yes, I thought there would be more people like us out there.

 


You also got the standard Autodesk reply: must be your screen card's drivers....

hehe again I am not bitter about it. Fact is that I have 3 different computers with a wide range of hardware and it runs like trash on everyone. Regardless of how much I update video card and framework. 2011 was amazing, this release simply strains the gpu way to much. The only thing that made it run better on one of my older computers was to disable hardware acceleration on my gpu through XP. It worked like a charm, by charm I mean 3 crashes per day hehe. I am not denying that it most likely is something wrong with how I have some of my hardware setup, I am just saying that for as mush work as I have done to update it, it really should not have this kind of compatability issues.

Any reply from Autodesk out there?

 

Or are these forums just for users to try and help other by trial and error?

I have to agree. I've crashed on IV2012 TWICE in the past 6 months, including beta. This is unacceptable! 

 

I'll bet this is almost all hardware or installation related.

Now this is funny... I just had my first Inv 2012 crash after like a month of usage. My biggest complaint on it would be its speed on the fastest computer Dell could deliver me that month ago (acc to Autodesk specs).

 

SW2011 did crash a lot though...  guess what Dassault told me, via their reseller? Yup.. you guessed it:  "must be your videocard drivers - update them."

 

Lets just face it.. it's like operating systems - they all suck and we users just need to keep our cool and deal with it.

I had a series of issues with a couple of my 2012 64bit installs, on some machines it ran pretty well, normal amount of crashes for an RTM build, but on others, it had features missing here and there, menus would appear and dissappear and it would crash several times an hour. The common denominator was the deployment, all deployed installs were unstable and bug ridden but the ones installed directly from the USB stick were ok. So i uninstalled all the deployed machines, deleted all autodesk folders & files manually after the uninstall, then i deleted all Autodesk related keys in the registry.

 

Once i reinstalled from the USB it runs as solid as to be expected for an RTM build. The machines we use are really well spec'd though. I read you installed from USB so I don't think this will help you but i thought i shoudl share my experience.

 

It was my first attempt at a deployment, I love some of the abilities it gives you, but pointless if it creates unstable installs.

Interesting Dennis_Jeffrey that you onyl had 2 crashes in 6 months, even though you clearly use a "un-certified" screen card GeForce 9800GT-1GB

 

Please tell us where you got the drivers from, since according to Autodesk it is onyl WHQL drives that will be certified, and even though WHQL drives are freely availalbe for almost all GeForce cards they are NOT certified!

Thank you, we installed all the PC's directly from the USB.
