Autocad 2011 Educational Edition
Posted on 2011-04-25
I have a MacBook Pro OS X Leopard. I have split my hard drive so I can also run Windows XP home edition. However I do not have any parallels so I can not run the two simultaneously.
On the Windows part of my hard drive, I have installed AutoCAD 2011 Educational Edition, a drafting program. I have been trying to continue work on an AutoCAD file that I have created, however whenever I type in more complicated key commands, such as "hatch," a message pops up that says, "FATAL ERROR: Out of memory-shutting down" and then the is an "OK" button. If I press it, another message pops up that says," AutoCAD cannot continue. You can attempt to save changes into the following file up to the start of the last command: (then it lists file and where I have it saved, E:\Witches P-1 2011 Reskin\NEW P-1 The Witches 04-24-2011_Recover.dwg) After you save your changes, you can open or recover the file. Should AutoCAD try to save your changes?"
I have tried recovering the file and then making alterations to that file. Whenever I try to see changes to the recovered file, the same message pops up. I have tried saving the file to my desk top and to my flash drive. Still, the same message pops up. I have also tried copying the wrk I do have saved in the file, and importing/pasting it into another file, but that has been unsuccessful as well.
I am unsure how there could be no memory left seeing as this is the same program they use to draft in the professional world, and surely must have more saved on to individual files than me.
I have also created a new file saved it and then have been successful in saving changes to that "unimportant" file. It appears that my "real" file might in some way be corrupted.
Please help. I do not know how to continue to work on this file since I need to upload things/make changes. Please help me figure this out.
