Problem quitting VW on NT4

Recommended Posts


recently the only way i can exit VW 8.5.1 ON NT4 is by ending task.

If i choose file - quit the drawing window closes but the program will not. It freezes

and the only way i can get rid of the program is by Task manager & end task.

Has anyone gotten around this problem.

System = VW 8,5.1 on Compaq with 64ram & nt4 ( sp 5 ).

Any suggestions appreciated

This sounds as though you are running too low on system resources while using VectorWorks. This could cause the situation you are referring to.

If your RAM is used up while running the program, there will not be enough left to shut the program down and therefore you will have to perform a manual shutdown.

Try closing the current file first, then quit the program. If this does not work, please contact Technical Support for further assistance. You might also consider adding more RAM to your machine and verifying that no other programs are running at the same time. I.e. close any Anti-Virus programs as they foul up the VectorWorks and use precious system resources.
