The software is telling you that there was no memory at the location it had been told to go to. This may mean you need more RAM, OR hard drive space, or it may simply be a corrupted install, try removing it and re-installing.

My autocad dwg files have been corrupted


Displays a list of all drawing files that were open at the time of a program or system failure. You can preview and open each drawing or backup file to choose which one should be saved as the primary DWG file. After a program or system failure, the Drawing Recovery Manager opens the next time you start the application. Drawing Recovery Manager displays a list of all drawing files that were open. The System Variable RECOVERYMODE controls whether drawing recovery information is recorded after a system failure and whether to show the Drawing Recovery Manager or not.

If you want to help yourself, Autodesk and other AutoCAD users make sure to send in any errors to Autodesk when you see the Customer Error Report dialog box (CER).


Finally a solution that sometimes helps if AutoCAD cannot fix the problem is to try to fix the drawing in another program that can open and save DWG files. The more users having the similar problem the better chance it will be fixed in a service pack or future version. Eventually you might
get DWG Restore Toolbox saying the problem is fixed.

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/

Our 450C plotter is connected via E-Net Hub and has extened memory. The "Test Printer" works. However it will not complete an Auto Cad Drawing. The ready light continues to flash but the plotter stops. any...


This could be one of a number of things. The file being sent must be smaller than the total memory of the printer. Connect the computer directly to the plotter with a parallel printer cable and see if it prints. If you are using an OS newer than XP, try using the XP 32 bit driver. If you are printing from AutoCad 14 or older, upgrade AutoCad (newer uses Windows printer drivers). If you can print OK with the parallel cable, get new external JetDirect software from the HP website.

Unable to load autocad 97 on windows vista


I don't believe Autocad will work at all on Windows Vista.

The only other solution I can think of is to download Virtual Box from http://www.virtualbox.org/

You will need to have an XP cd to install, and basically you will be installing an XP virtual machine, at which time you can then install Autocad 97 onto that virtual machine.

Hope this helps!

AutoCad R14 to Vista - bab-Mem-Pointer error message


You are still using AutoCAD R14? If you are that might be the problem. If you are running Vista, then AutoCAD R14 might be too old of a version to run. You will probably need to upgrade to a newer version of AutoCAD. I know this isn't a solution, but I am just trying to look at it from a different point of view. You can also go to autodesk.com and join their discussion groups. It is free and you can post questions. You usually get a fast response with an answer that really helps. I will do a little more research and add more when I get a chance. Good luck and I hope that I helped.

I keep getting the same message while using autocad 2002lt


There are a few things to try. I'd try this first: Start ACAD and use the Recover command (File menu) to open your drawing. If that doesn't you can insert your drawing into an empty drawing as an exploded block and/or purge your drawing.
