Does this happen repeatably, every time the program is invoked using the same method?

Presuming that the program did run correctly before this problem occurred, two possibilities come to mind, because the problem is now chronic.  If the program was just installed and is faulting, only the first possibility below applies.

First:  A memory problem at a specific location.  If the system has pairs of memory installed, swap the pair locations.  If this causes the problem to move, or to disappear, a memory problem may be indicated.  Then run Memtest-86+ or your favorite memory diagnostic to isolate the bad memory.

Second:  A damaged software component in the Autocad suite.  Unfortunately, the only way to test that possibility is to remove Autocad, then reinstall it.
