Recently, I had a customer with a qualified laptop running the Inventor 2011 Suite. Autodesk Inventor was working but AutoCAD Mechanical was not working. The error was:
- Exception in ACVMTOOLS.ARX. Unhandled exception c0000005 (Access violation reading 0xd900fa08)@69a32c8fh
The specifications of the laptop are below:
- Lenovo W510 laptop
- Windows 7 x64
- NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M v184.108.40.20625 (current driver on our list)
You will need to uninstall the Lenovo USB port replicator software and AutoCAD Mechanical should function properly:
I would like to thank Vicki Hill for sharing this tip.
