AutoCAD Mechanical 2010 crashes on opening

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

Hi All,

I recently installed AutoCAD Mechanical 2010 and ever since I am unable to launch this application. Every time I attempt opening, it crashes with a Fatal Error message. I tried to uninstall and reinstall the software but this effort did not seem to work. Then I proceeded to do a clean uninstall of AutoCAD following the instructions given on AutoCAD support. I logged in as administrator and disabled the antivirus software. And then I deleted all the related files pertaining to AutoCAD 2010 for my 32 bit windows vista machine. Finally, I opened the system registry and deleted the Registry Keys as well. Thankfully, completing all the steps without any issues, I proceeded with a fresh installation of the application. This installation too finished smoothly and again I tried launching AutoCAD. But even now, the application keeps reporting this same error. Now, what could be done? Please help. I welcome all your ideas with a big ‘Thank you’.

If this problem is like a permanent thing and doesn’t change, though your operating system is supported you still need to check your hardware if there is one not supported. For the operating system, AutoCAD Mechanical 2010 supports Windows XP [Home or Professional] Service Pack 2 or higher and Windows Vista [Enterprise, Business, Ultimate, and Home Premium] Service Pack 1 or higher.

For the hardware, your processor should be dual core either Intel Pentium or AMD Athlon with 1.6 GHz speed or faster. This is for system running on Microsoft Windows XP. For computers with Windows Vista, it should also be a dual core with 3.0 GHz speed or faster. And most importantly, whether you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, your processor should support SSE2 technology.

Verify the specifications of your processor to know if it supports the SSE2 technology. To check the specifications of your processor, visit How to find your processor Spec number. You need information like the ones shown below.
