Solved Autocad 2006 doesn't open after upgraded Win XP to Win 7

March 13, 2016 at 08:06:36
Specs: Windows 7, Pentium 4 2GHz / 4 gigs.
Why does autocad 2006 hesitate on win7 when opening files or inserting blocks? I am a 1 man show, so I don't have any networking issues. All my files are saved on my local hardrive. I never had this problem on my old xp machine.

Who installed Win7? Did you make sure your hardware was compatible with the "new" OS before installing it? Are all the latest drivers installed, especially motherboard chipset & graphics?

✔ Best Answer
I would check with your video card manufacturer and see if there is a driver update for your video card. Possible it didn't get updated when you installed the new operating system.
As for file scanning, I think Autodesk products read every file that is needed when it opens a file. If the file has a bad path, is corrupted or doesn't exist the system will spend alot of time searching for it.
If it's so, then you can try to repair files via Recovery Toolbox DWG and see if you can open them. They have a demo version. So you'll be able to check can this program help you or not. Recovery Toolbox DWG
