AutoCad 3D 2014 errors out on startup

When I startup AutoCAD, I get "Unhandled exception has occurred in a component in your application. if you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue.

A PROCEDURE IMPORTED BY 'MapPublishLmp.dll' could not be loaded


I have checked in the event logs, there appears to be an issue with the computer account in the domain so I disjoined and rejoined the domain. That didn't fix.
I have several .net 2.5 and 3.5 and 4.0 and 4.5 updates as well as some other windows 7 windows updates.

Those crash on occasion and a "repairing your system" dialog box pops up and takes about 20 minutes to run through a repair.


I have loaded each update 1 by 1 and that didn't help.

I have repaired and reinstalled AC 3D 2014 but to no resolve.

Can someone please help? All other apps work fine.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

I've had alot of issues with Autocad in this past but I've had a very similar one to you,

The way i resolved it was uninstall of Autocad, ensured the program folders were definitely deleted and then went on to redownload a fresh install of Autocad then installed logged with a new local profile.

I tried that today. I did a repair and a reinstall. I have done a search for the file in question and it doesn't exist. My thought is that some older version of AutoCAD Map 3D may have been installed at one time but its not a option now, its perhaps a separate product.

Is there a cleanup tool?

I ran two utilities, probably will have more issues than good but to fix the issue, I removed all products again.

Remove applications that won't remove: http://support2.microsoft.com/mats/program_install_and_uninstall

I had a single Autodesk component that won't uninstall.

I ran CCleaner, did the registry clean up after I had to manually go and delete the c:\users\username\appdata\local and roaming folders for autodesk

I deleted c:\program files\autodesk
I removed all entries for it everywhere it is


Finally I rebooted
Then i reinstalled and it worked.
