AutoCAD/AUTOCAD ALERT-UNHANDLED EXCEPTION

Question
QUESTION: Dear Bill:

AutoCAD 2008 seems to be up to speed but when I open the application I get the following message:
         ---------------
UNHANDLED EXCEPTION HAS OCCURRED IN A COMPONENT IN YOUR APPLICATION.  IF YOU CLICK CONTINUE, THE APPLICATION WILL IGNORE THIS ERROR AND ATTEMPT TO CONTINUE
OBJECT REFERENCE NOT SET TO AN INSTANCE OF AN OBJECT
         ---------------
"Details" include references to Assembly, Win32, and mentions it does not support "JIT" debugging. ---------------I hit continue...and everything is fine.

Is this something to be concerned about???

Besides this alert I'm pretty much on board.

Thanks.
Very truly yours,

Sheldon

QUESTION: Hi Bill:

I'm running Windows 7 on a Dell computer.
I've been doing a bit of footwork trying to launch a couple of projects without having to purchase all sorts of "stuff," I mean expensive stuff.  I bought a refurbished hp running windows 10, but that is not the computer I am using.  People want to talk me into spending lots of $$$.  I feel like I need to mortgage my casket. ----------------Any way, you've been a charmer in the past...hope you can help.

I had lots of trouble launching AutoCAD 2007 previously, if you remember: codes, service packs, remedial programs...

This time it seemed to install relatively easily...

Hope you can help.

Vty,

Sheldon

Answer
So, let me get this straight.  You installed AutoCAD 2007 on a Windows 7 laptop.  Just like my architect.  And the installation went smooth.  Only when you try to start AutoCAD you get an "Unhandled Exception" error message.  I'm sure you've tried restarting your computer, right?  Dumb question, but I have to ask.  Sorry.

Expertise

I can address all 2-D questions and some 3-D questions. I do programming in AutoLISP if it doesn`t involve solid modeling. I can also address menu customization issues and can help you find answers to questions I can`t answer by taking your question directly to Autodesk via their newsgroups.

Experience

I used to do electronic and mechanical design for a flat panel monitor manufacturer, and now I do architectural drafting for an architect. I did and do AutoLISP and menu customization and take pride in making my lisp routines to do the work exactly the way the client likes them done.

Publications
I had a routine published in CADENCE magazine (no longer in publication and taken over by CADALYST). Some of my routines are published on my website at http://my.sterling.net/~bdeshawn
