SOLVED: autocad LT error aborting fatal error unhandled e0434352h Exception

Post by Fletch » Thu Nov 11, 2021 12:09 pm

Sorry for the off-topic of SketchUp and Twilight, but I'm putting this here for safe-keeping in case it will help anyone out there on the interwebs searching for an answer to this problem.

Error message from ACAD every time it crashes is something like this:
autocad LT error aborting fatal error unhandled e0434352h Exception at 5bb34b89h

Ok, so AUTOCAD crashing with fatal error unhandled e0434352h Exception appears to be solved!

The answer was unpredictable and weird. :-: :!

I was trying to think of anything I changed lately that may effect autoCAD. I noticed that it crashed more the faster I tried to work. So the faster I typed my commands, then it would crash more often.

So then I remembered…

Lately my eyesight is not 20/20 like it used to be. So running double screens sometimes I find I lose where my mouse or cursor are.

I went into Windows system settings for the cursor and the mouse a couple of weeks ago and (foolishly) enabled “Turn on text cursor indicator” and increased the size of the cursor indicator as well as the cursor appearance which sort of acts as a “highlight cursor” feature.

This is what was apparently was causing ACAD to crash. Because after all the other major changes nothing changed and ACAD kept crashing (update ACAD, update graphics driver, update windows, yadda yadda).

But once I DISabled the text cursor indicator and returned the cursor thickness to normal default. ACAD stopped crashing! It hasn’t crashed today.

So annoying. How many hours of my life were lost to that weirdness?

Apparently ACAD and Windows could not figure out what to do with this cursor indicator when I was drawing and typing commands simultaneously.

Mystery solved.

It's these sorts of issues that can put folk off computers!
I turn on the CTRL locator option on to help find my cursor.

That may help solve the problem without crashing ACAD, thanks JGA :^:
