  2. thank you working for me

  3. Is it for only AutoCad users or what? I'm asking coz I don't even use AutoCad but this bullshit keeps coming up and refuses to close until I force my PC to shutdown.

  4. Please say something about it thanks.

  5. it did but didn't work at all. But after installed latest version of windows 7 x64. My problem solved

  6. I also had to solve this problem found a slightly another way, as it turned out the problem has been in the missing files
    and I should fix it with api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll download
    My trying was quite successful, and it worked at all.
