TCorris posted a topic in AutoCAD Bugs, Error Messages & QuirksRecently upgraded my work computer to run Windows 7. First, I couldn't run The new Windows 7 Aero without AutoCAD being slow, jumpy, and unresponsive. Realized my graphics card sucked and I had to disable Aero. Viola, Worked great. Then I worked with drawings referencing PDF underlays... No Bueno. AutoCAD crashed non-stop. I switched AutoCAD to run in Compatibility mode with Windows XP SP3. Now shes doing well. I only have 1 tiny problem, that is growing into a complete thorn in my side. Everytime I open a drawing from explorer, AutoCAD relaunches the entire program. I searched for answers, I found the SDI and Taskbar commands. Both are set to "0"... No go, still doing it. Checked in windows for the file type association "AutoCAD DWG Launcher" is already selected. These are the 3 most common answers I have found, and so far the ONLY answers I have found... I cannot seem to stop AutoCAD from loading multiple times from explorer. I don't know if its a Windows problem, or an AutoCAD problem. I am getting around it by going through the AutoCAD menu and opening everything, but its just slowing me down. Anyone know of anything else I can try? Thanks!
