shailujp posted a topic in AutoCAD Bugs, Error Messages & QuirksOur company switched from Norton to McAfee antivirus. Immediately, my AutoCAD 2008 started crashing while creating New drawing for the 2nd to 3rd time (first time works ok). Since I was the only one having this issue out of 500 others, IT personal reinstalled my AutoCAD. Nothing changed. So my windows user profile was deleted. It seems that this worked. But this created a lot of mess for me to set since I lost a lot of personal settings and preferences. While doing these settings, I reallized that my AutoCAD again started crashing. I accidently realized that the Window setting for the icon display under MyComputer>Organize>Folder and Search options>View> Always show icons, never thumbnails, when checked crashes the AutoCAD. I dont like the thumbnails of any document so I wanted to check that box. Then I switched back and checked the AutoCAD and it was working fine. I tried this several times back and forth and concluded that this was it. However, I'm still not sure why would AutoCAD fail on the windows Icon display setting. Strange but true (alteast for me). Hope this helps anyone troubleshooting. Regards,
Hi guys, I work in a company that has 6 CAD drafters. We are all running AutoCAD 2013 on the same machines with same specs and everything. We are running Dell Precision WorkStation T7500 x64 Windows 7 Professional 64 bit with Intel Xeon CPU (E5620 @2.40 GHz, 4 cores) BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A13 NVIDIA Quadro 2000 or ATI FirePro V5800 However, only 1 person in the department keeps consistently having slow processing problems with his AutoCAD. I have updated his drivers, ran all the audits/cleanups on the files, turned off all unnecessary things (i've been trying to fix this a while) and it is still taking anywhere from 5 seconds to over 5 minutes sometimes to simply save a file (the filesize in the case of today is only 288KB and it functions fine on my machine). Since we are all running essentially the same thing, I have not been able to figure out what else to do to solve this problem. The IT guy has also tried pretty much everything and no clue. Yesterday I pulled up his task manager and it said that his CAD was taking up 1,456,000 memory whereas mine runs at its slowest at about 1/3rd of that. Restarts don't help, and he isn't running more programs than anyone else here. We all run the same basic stuff (if anything I run more than him because I also play music and sometimes I have 2 CAD instances open.) Also, there is no anti-virus program doing scans in the background, that is set to like 2 am or something. The problem seems to start when he first gets here in the morning and lasts consistently all day, according to him. Any suggestions? At this point I am desperate and looking for any solutions before we completely wipe his computer and reinstall everything. Thank you in advance!
upilavastu posted a topic in AutoCAD Bugs, Error Messages & QuirksFirst of all, I wanna say that I'm a beginner in every autocad world. so please make it easy for me I have my autocad 2012 for students since a year ago, it perform really well. there are no problem with it, but last day when I try to plot a drawing, suddenly my autocad freeze when the plot job progress window showed. I then forced quit the application and try it again. and it happen again, the autocad freeze again (my cursor turn into loading-mode). After that, I got frustrated and forced to quit the application again and begin to try to plot another file. Then I make a new drawing with a simple rectangle on it and try to plot it. but still the same. the auto cad get freezed again. I then frustrated again and uninstall my auto cad 2012 students and replace it with Autocad 2013. But the thing is still the same, I always got my autocad freeze when try to plot to PDF. what should I do? I need help! please! there's nothing wrong with my computer, because there's nothing wrong with the autocad since last day. Note: The last dwg file I plotted is an exported file from sketch up 8.
