System

Xeon, Windows 7

Autocad 2011

 

I'm lost and require some help.

 

Autocad was installed and crashs when I try to plot, run commands or even click on the dropdown tab in the top left corner.

 

After reinstalling I tried the link below with no sucess.

Anyone have any further advice?

Hi,

 

You should first verify you are up to date with AutoCAD service-packs (check >>>here<<<).

 

And a few additional questions:

  • What graphics card do you use?
  • Have you tried to work with AutoCAD when loggin into Windows with another user-account? Maybe you try it with an account that has full (local) admin-permissions.
  • Have you any tools or applications running on top of Windows?
  • You might also try to disable AERO in Windows, sometime it's a help.

 

Good luck, - alfred -

It turns out my profile was crashing the system.  After uninstalling, cleaning reg it worked fine.  I imported my profile and all hell broke loose.  The funny thing is, my profile works fine with the same version of CAD on my laptop but when used on my desktop it crashes.

 

 

 

Thanks for the help

Hi,

 

First thank you for your feedback!

>> but when used on my desktop it crashes.

May be there are different files in your user-folder on the workstation compared to your laptop or other permission-settings (to folder or to your user account and local permissions).
