Running XPpro SP2. I have just installed Land Desktop 3 (2002). The
program will not start. On launch I get an "unhandled execption error in
the acadmap.arx file. If i rename this file to skip load acad will start
fine but i do not have any of the Map functions!! Can't seem to find much
about this problem online. Anyboby know how to resolve this issue?
A number of things could be responsible.
1. Make sure that OfficeScan, and any other antispam software etc., is
not runnng when you install LDD.
2. The install on the one laptop may have not completed without
unreported errors. Do a complete uninstall. Look for document TS45252
on the Autodesk website. This document describes how to completely
uninstall an Autodesk product to ensure a clean reinstall.
3. You will not find anything about your problem with LDD 2002 and
Windows Xp because the 2002 Autodesk products are not supported on
Windows XP. Technical support, other than what is available on the
Autodesk Knowledge Base, for all the 2002 products was dropped in July
2005 when the 2002 products were retired. In fact the entire 2004
product line is retired as of this month and will no longer be

Bitter experience has taught me not to use Nortons, Trend or McAfee
Antivirus with any graphical application . . . .
Try AVG - works well , daily updates and uses little memory & resources
