AutoCad LT 2011 freezes when I try to open or save as
« on: August 22, 2016, 12:22:01 AM »
I am unable to save as or open files from AutoCAD LT 2011.  I tried setting filedia and cmddia to 1 but they were already set to 1. I reinstalled AutoCAD LT and it did not help.  Can anyone help me?  I am able to save.

Do you have a paid software license?  Autocad without a proper license cannot save DWG files. But this doesn't explain why you cannot open files, unless they are in a newer version format.

Hello,
Figured out the problem last night.  Dropbox had something running which interfered with AutoCAD.
Uninstalled Dropbox and everything is back to normal.  If I need dropbox in the future I can turn it on, use it, and turn it off again.
