Tip & How-To about Autodesk AutoCAD 2005

My AutoCAD software does not start anymore.

Hi.

If AutoCAD was starting until recent times, and suddenly stopped working, that means that there is either a corrupted registry or system value, or that one of the Autocad files is damaged.

Below the solution for Mac and Windows.

If you have Windows:

The first fix that you can try is doing a system restore to a date before the problem occurred. System restore will bring all settings and registry values back to the chosen date, so that if the problem is a corrupted registry, then Autocad will restart working.

Most of the times, System restore will be enough to fix the problem. If system restore does not solve the problem, it means that one or more of the Autocad files may be damaged. In that case the only solution will be uninstalling and re-installing back the design software. You will need a disk and an installation key to reinstall AutoCAD.

Try first doing a system restore, that usually works.

Here instructions on how to do system restore:

How to perform System Restore on Windows XP

How to use System Restore in Windows Vista

If you have a Mac:

On a Mac try first using repair permissions. Close all application and log off. Log back on. Go to Finder, Applications. Utilities, Disk Utility. After the message saying "Getting Disk Information" select Volume, then Repair Permissions.

If that does not work reinstall Mac OS or do an update.

If still no luck, you have to reinstall AutoCAD using AutoCAD CD and installation key.

Regards.

How do i fix autocad? Please help!


You can fix this problem in two ways.
First: follow these steps
- Open the Registry Editor by typing "regedit" in the Windows 8 Search charm and selecting "regedit" from the Apps section of the search results.
- Navigate to the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R15.0\ACAD-1:405\AdLM\Type" registry key.
- Right-click on the registry key and click "Export."
- Choose a name to save the license registry key file as, along with a location where you want to save it, and then click the "Save" button.
But if it useless try the second way- DWG Fix Toolbox. http://www.autocad.fixtoolbox.com/

auto cad internal error problem GEDIT 3


Hi there.
Uninstall AutoCad again and download CCleaner from here >>>>

http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

Once downloaded use the cleaner to get rid of any temporary files that are in hidden folders on the computer then use the registry cleaner to remove any registry entries or unused file extensions.

You will see in the screen shot CCleaners registry tool, where is says scan for issues click on that, once it's completed click fix selected issues, it will ask you if you want to back up to the registry, click on yes and save, keep on scanning for issues until it says no issues found.
Restart the PC and then reinstall AutoCad, hopefully the problems will be solved.
Please post back with the results.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

UNABLE TO DETECT CD/DVD ROM


Hi, the error code that you have is a known issue from Microsoft that needs a registry tweaks. Error code means "Your registry might be corrupted (code 19)." You can click on this link for your reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

This will surely help you resolve your issue. Good Luck!!!

Thanks
