AutoCAD Architecture + AutoCAD MEP + Microsoft Update = Crash [Resolved]

[Resolved]: Microsoft has released an Internet Explorer Update (2987107) to resolve this issue.


There have been reports of AutoCAD Architecture 2014 & AutoCAD MEP 2014 having some stability issues.


  • Crashing when switching projects via Project Browser.
  • Crashing when accessing the Structural Member Catalog or the catalog appears blank.

Issues began after installing last week’s Microsoft update  (July 8, 2014):

  • MS14-037: Security update for Internet Explorer versions 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11.

To solve this problem, you may need to uninstall the update.

Do you know if this affects just the 2014 products? We are getting a bunch of users with fatal errors this week, but they are using ACAD MEP 2012.

We have confirmed from the development team that this issue affects 2014. We are assuming that it will also affect older products.

This does not affect 2015 products.


I'm affected also, I'm using 2012 ACA. I tried to remove the IE security update but keeps installing itself.
