AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Freezes If Multi-tasking On Startup?

Mar 28, 2011

While using Explorer 9, it is empty. Anyway, I've switched to compatability mode.

I have this issue with 2 installations of Civil3D 2011-64 bit. I have 2 monitors. When first starting up, while Civil3D is loading, if I move to the other monitor and do any activity with the mouse, once civil3D is loaded, it is frozen. I can't do anything with it and need to use Task Manager to close it. If I just leave the mouse alone until Civil3D completely loads, then I'm fine. Just a minor annoyance, but have never experienced it with earlier versions.

Photoshop :: CS3 Extended Freezes On Startup - Windows 7

May 4, 2012

Recently Photoshop CS3 Extended freezes when I launch it on my Windows 7 (64 bit) computer. The splash screen appears but then it just stops working (usually on initializing Tools).

I have read several things so far. To fix it I tried:

- disabling the TWAIN plugin

- resetting all tools

- deleting the Photoshop preferences file.

- deleting my printer from the control panel (some others said printer drivers could cause it)

Photoshop Elements :: 10 Organizer Freezes Shortly After Startup?

May 25, 2013

I have about 35000 pictures with avg size of 7Mb and use a single catalog to manage these. I created chronological albums by filtering on 6 month time periods, i have about 16 of these. When I created this initial setup, the organizer was working fine. not since then. e.g.:

-When I'm trying to download new pictures from my camera, I can open the Photo downloader program, it detects the camera and the pictures on it, I can set to location to download to, but none of the other settings, like 'Rename Files' and the Get Media button doesn't respond, even though it looks active.

-When I try to browse through my albums, I can select one, but then the application becomes unresponsive and I cannot get it to do anything anymore.
I'm also observing continuous harddisk activity and the Windows Task Manager is showing that is caused by the PSE Organizer.
I'm running Windows 7 64bit, have 8Gb memory, and 2 Xeon quadcore 2.33 mhz processors

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Startup Crash Under Certain Conditions?

Feb 8, 2013

Civil 3D 2013, SP1.

Set STARTUP to 2, and make sure the Sheet Set Manager palette is visible.

Close Civil 3D, then restart it.

It should open in a zero-document state, with the SSM palette visible.

Now open a sheet set, and double click on a sheet in the SSM to open it.

When I do this, I get four "Unhandled Exception" dialogs in a row, then C3D disappears (crashes!)

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Often Freezes Mid-command When Scroll Over A Contour Line

Apr 24, 2012

It happens during many different commands. The command itself doesn't seem to affect this problem. It doesn't always happen, but every so often, as I'm in the middle of a command, when I scroll past a contour line the program freezes. Sometimes it comes back to life after a few seconds of thinking, but sometimes it just sits there non-responsive forever.

Possible ideas:

-Contour Labels set to "Mask Contour Line Only"

-Dynamic Inputs on

-Selection Preview is on (but it's disabled for "When a command is active")

-Surface is shortcutted into the drawing

-Contours are from an XREF

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multi Barrel Pipes

Nov 24, 2013

What the best way to draw multiple parallel pipes that cross a corridor.  In my example I have a track with 4 pipes crossing the track corridor on slightly different alignments (from perpendicular to skewed).  I have drawn the pipes on as individual pipes under the same network.

However I cannot get them all to display on the profile.  I have tried "Draw Parts in Profile" but it seems to bring up only 1 pipe. managing multiple pipes.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Command Line Sluggish And Cursor Freezes In 2012?

Apr 26, 2012

Since last week (4-19-2012) Our users have been expierencing cursor issues and freezes with Civil 3d 2012.  Entering commands in the command line very slugish, pressing the shift key to select / de-select, trim, open osnap menu, ext.

We are running Win7pro6d bit quad core machines with 6gb ram, ATI FirePro V4800 (FireGL), Intel Xeon ES640 (2.67 ghz).  AutoCAD Civil 3D(SP2) and all hotfixes installed.

This problem just started one week ago and It started with the cursor jumping all over the place when crossing objects. However; we now have very sluggish command line entry, 2 - 3 seconds after typing till it shows up, and cursors freezing when pressing the shift key for any reason.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multi Leader Block Colors

Dec 31, 2012

I have a road construction ahead sign where I have hatched the background orange (color 30) as a mask since I am using an air photo for the drawing background.  The block is fine until I try to use it in a multi leader, then the hatch color switches to block and I can't read the text.  The block was created on the same layer as it is inserted.  How do I get the orange hatch to show as orange in the multi leader block?  See the attached screen shot.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: 2013 Freezes After Selecting (Select Profile View Origin)

Jul 15, 2013

I have created a pipe network and am now creating an alignment and profile from that network. I follow the steps outlined in help file and when I get to "Select profile view origin" C3D freezes. I can invoke the Task Manager and choose to end C3D, then cancel when prompted to save file and control is returned. But no profile is created. Is it a video card issue maybe?

Seems like it is creating the alignment but freezes before the profile is created - In Prospector there are aligments in the misc category from multiple tries but no profiles associated with them. When it occurs I can't zoom or pan in C3D but I can switch to another app.

AutoCAD Civil 3D :: Multi View Blocks Displaying Incorrectly In Object Viewer And Paperspace

Apr 30, 2013

I'm pretty new to using multi view blocks and rendering etc etc... basically all I want to do is show my surface (lake and landscaping) as grass, show a clear blue hatch to represent the water line and add some multi view blocks.. people and trees...

Using the multiview blocks toolpalette I have dragged and dropped some blocks into model space and ensured they are at the correct elevation to sit on the surface...

I have noticed that only one of the multi view blocks within the landscape tab is showing as I would expect - the rest all look like an extruded cross... I don't know how to fix this or whether this is correct.

AutoCAD 2010 :: X64 Locking Up Upon Startup

Feb 24, 2012

I had been using AutoCAD 2012 x64 w/SP1 for quite a few months with no issues. A week or two ago I went to open a drawing and the program locked up. I tried opening AutoCAD via the desktop shortcut and directly from acad.exe and it locks up immediately. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling 2012, but the issue persisted. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling without any service packs. I normally don't use Windows Update and hadn't downloaded any updates prior to these issues, but I did it to see if it would fix the issue and it did not. I uninstalled 2012 and installed AutoCAD 2011 x64 only to have the same exact issue. I have an old version, AutoCAD 2002 that works fine, but my job always receives drawings not saved in 2000, and my convert tool sometimes fails to convert them to a version I can open. A friend of mine pointed me to this thread here: URL.... I am using Windows 7 x64 on a somewhat up to date PC that I built myself.

AutoCAD .NET :: Ribbon Load At Startup?

Dec 8, 2012

I have been using the ribbon api to create my custom ribbon.  I am now attempting to load said rribbon at startup by placing the load command into the initialize componant.  It isn't working. 

 Dim ribCntrl As Autodesk.Windows.RibbonControl = Autodesk.Windows.ComponentManager.Ribbon
        If ComponentManager.Ribbon Is Nothing Then
        End If
        For i As Integer = 0 To ribCntrl.Tabs.Count - 1


I seem to remember being told it's because the ribbon .dll hasn't yet started at this point sso it has nothing to use to load it?

AutoCAD 2010 :: Startup Settings To 0

May 29, 2011

 When starting acad with Startup set to 0 or when launching from a drawing on file, I do not have any problems, however, when Startup is set to 1, not only does the startup menu appear as a blank pop -up, but the AutoCAD splash screen just hangs without the program launching.

Could it be due to the fact that I am running a 64 bit System?

AutoCAD LT :: Blue Screen Of Death At Startup

Jun 15, 2012

One of my end users reports to me that his computer has been crashing. We soon learn that it crashes every time he starts AutoCad LT 2006.

What I have done so far is completely removed autocad and all associated programs. Reinistalled, installed a newer version (Autocad LT 2007), upgraded to the latest bios and firmware on the machine. Replaced the RAM, and just about everything else under the sun and this machine still crashes every time you start auto cad. I asked the user when the last time was that it worked and he said he was using it about a month ago just fine.

I installed the program on my identical laptop and it works just fine.

I ran the BSOD via Kernel mode through WinDBG and it points to ACPI.SYS. Being that this is a heavy system driver file, need getting this program to actually work short of me reinstalling the entire OS on the machine? The stop error is the 0x00000050 memory error.
