Runtime error in Plotmaker

Not applicable
Hi there,

Despite restarting and running only plotmaker, I am getting the following error when trying to update drawings. This has just started happening in the last week, restarting helped at first, not today:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
Runtime Error!
Program:C:\Program Files\ArchiCAD 8.1\ArchiCAD.exe

This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information.

- yeah you guys are the support team today. Any ideas??

- the nice plotmaker / archicad link is quite a big liability if it wont even launch the background archicad. No update = no issue of drawings today.


2.6Ghz P4 Xp PRO, 512Mb ArchiCAD 8.1 Plotmaker 3.1

We have just had the same sort of error in PlotMaker on a new PC running WinXP. In PlotMaker we can open and print etc., as well as import images etc. When importing from ArchiCAD (direct) or updating imported ArchiCAD drawings we get the following error message:

Error while launching ArchiCAD in background.

New and Reset in both ArchiCAD and PlotMaker have failed to help, as has a new install.

Ideas anyone?
