Well, after going through multiple options on the listl


uninstalled my antivirus

updated my drivers

redownloaded my graphics card drivers

reinstalled autocad

tried various registry fixing tools


and all in vain, I almost gave up and then  downloaded AutoCAD 2017 Service Pack 1; I think that might have done the trick will tell you more as I use it in the following days


Thanks Nick

Service packs usually come with a bunch of interface enhancements as well as bug fixes. Unsure if this can solve Unhandled Exception errors, but it’s worth a shot! Let us know if it does the trick.

Autodesk does list a recommended driver for the Intel HD 520.  I’d get that one.


No listing at all for the GeForce card.


Are you running Hardware Acceleration On or Off?

hi, Im Andhika from Indonesia, just to share how the fast tricky if you have those problem.

if the AutoCAD already opened, maybe there are some mistake / bug, I dont know how to explain it, but we can save as that file with .dxf and use lower version (maybe 2000 or 2007) and then try to open again that dxf file and save it .dwg with lower version again.

thats it.

its works
