Got this window that pops up everytime I try to open DraftSight. It is activated and runs on Win 10 64bit.

The window says that ( DraftSight is unable to send a crash report ), asks that I save the report and send to

Performance @DraftSight.com. I have done that three times and got no replies or action. This window is

preventing DraftSight from opening what are my options for this issue? HELP

Re: DraftSight Free Won't Open

Hello,

 

I have a client using the free version, latest revision.  His just goes into not responding, can't do anything but end the task.  I have tried un-installing and re-installing with no luck.  Removed antivirus, rebooted, no luck.  He is running Windows 10 64b, latest patch installed after Draftsight stoppped working.

 

I'm wondering if the Nvidia drivers updated, I'll have a look at that.

 

Anyone else having this issue??

 

Thanks,

 

Erik

Re: DraftSight Free Won't Open

I just did and it did'nt complete the download, some issue with needing more software or some such.

It was a download for DS 2017 SPI.

Also why does that crash report window follow each fresh new download of DS?.

Re: DraftSight Free Won't Open

Be sure that the Draftsight hotfix was downloaded and installed - see Draftsight page of SW Site for more info.

It is the latest revision, no hot fix is needed.  But aside from that, I attempted to install it anyway earlier today and it said the hotfix was not applicable to my version.

 

Thanks,

So after some tinkering, I was able to get it working again.  In the end, uninstalling Draftsight with a tool called Geek Uninstaller got it for me.  It removed some Draftsight files from the registry that the Draftsight uninstaller did not.  After re-installing it works great.

 

Hope this helps someone.

Thank you for this. I have been struggling with this same problem. WIndows 10, 64 bit, Draftsight Pro, crash report, etc... I downloaded Geek uninstaller (Free) and it worked. Thanks again
