    I've been using AutoCad 2000 on my Vista Desktop for the past - I dunno -
    couple of months?

    All of a sudden today, I go to start up the ACAD, and get a:

    "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
    Runtime Error

    C:\Program Files\ACAD2000\acad.exe

    Abnormal Program Termination"

    I hadn't changed anything, hadn't added or removed any programs, hadn't
    changed any settings...

    But now - when I try to open AutoCad - it gets half way through the loading
    process, and I get the above message, and that's it - when I hit "OK" - it
    kicks me out...

    Any thoughts?

    I would suggest that you upgrade your Auto Cad that version your useing is
    verry old not even supported by Autodesk anymore. I would suggest if
    possible go to AutoCad 2006 that runs flawless, I havent tried 2007 yet

    I am having the same problem. Program worked, then suddenly I am
    getting a runtime error. It must have happened in an update. It is
    ridiculous for the compatibility wizard not to be able to run a program
    that operated on older systems.

  4. I have got some more obscure programs running in Vista using the Application
    Compatibility Toolkit (CAD programs as well, coincidentally).

    Exactly the same problem here!

    It just started last night. I'm running Mechanical desktop and I get
    the error when acad.exe tries to start. It starts ok if I put in the
    disc. I think I'm going to try a re-install.

    Have you cured yours?

    I had a similar problem, it was fixed by disableing the autocad today
    screen. Of course now that autocad is crashing you will not be able to
    disable the today screen which must be done by going to options, then to
    the sytem tab. Starting autocad by double clicking on a drawing from a
    USB key instead of opening autocad first then searching for a drawing to
    open worked for me.
