    Love Autocad 2012 seems slow to load and crashes often

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi everyone,

    My work helpdesk has recently installed AutoCad 2012 and my co worker and I noticed that at the start up its loads very slowly and often when we double click on a DWG to open (without Autocad being already open) it crashes. has anyone else noticed this?? As for the new 2012 discoveries so far I love it.

    Thanks

    Abbyjay

    have a great week end

    Are you receiving any error messages? I would have IT make sure they installed per Autodesk instructions.

    What are you computer and graphics card specs?
