Hi, I just loaded ArchCAD 10 on a new Dell Precision computer 4 GB RAM Windows XP Pro SP2. However it crashes on start up. The splash screen comes up then crashes. ArchiCAD 9 runs great on the computer, I have tried unistalling re-installing but nothing seems to work. Any help would be appreciated
I`m sure that ArchiCAD 10 is not compatible with some programs but I don`t know with which ones! Is there any list of incompatible programs??? I have the same problem: It crashes on Startup and it start BUG REPPORTER automaticaly! I`m running the Student Version on a HP Pavilion dv9000 with AMD TURION64 x2, 1 GB DDR2, 256MB GeForce Go 7600, winXP MEDIA CENTER EDITION!
I am also a new user experiencing frequent random crashes with ArchiCAD 10 EDU version. I have followed the above advise regarding the McAfee suite and default printer setting, with no success. The random crashing would indicate a system issue, can someone please confirm if what im running could be causing the crashes?
Im happy for you Gogu, wish i was having the some good fortune
The program seems to crash of its own accord soon after loading up when i attempt to load a file or alter a file or just about anything really :S. So im fairly certain that it is not a system issue, but more likely to be a software conflict like yours.
I have now uninstalled AC10, Acrobat and Quicktime and re-installed all 3 programs from the Graphisoft install pack which i re-downloaded as well. Ive also disabled Nortons but none of it has worked....im out of ideas now. Anyone got any idea of other programs that may be conflicting with AC10?
ps I dont have the ACE mega pack, and i cant think of any programs i have installed that would be doing a similar thing.
Java and Quicktime both with most recent updates.
Amyuni converter is version 2.09 and working ok.
AC10 loads both splash screens ok, just seems to shut down (no warning...just disappears) soon after starting a project. I recall reading something about autosave issues somewhere... could this be somehow involved?
I cant identify any particular action that is causing this problem, it seems as if its something the program itself is trying to do in the background that causes it to crash.
If you recently reinstalled Windows, then you might be running the Windows built-in video card driver, which supports only an outdated OpenGL version. Try updating the video card driver from the vendor's site.
In case of "misterious" crashes, number one "suspect" is always the video card, then comes QuickTime, printers then a broken WIBU key.
