v2020 Crashing every 3-5 Minutes without warning

Question

Vectorworks 2020 keeps crashing without warning and without saving progress properly after every 3-5minutes of being open. There are 40-50 Sheets in this file all referencing a single view port. On a good day The file will work after saving after every single action, however, It will still crash every 15-20 minutes. Please Help.

Hard to know where to start without knowing computer specs, OS, etc.

 

Is the reference an external file?  How big is the file?  What is the rendering style of the viewports?  Do you have any hi res image based textures?

@michaelk The file is about 9500KB, They are just plans with simple polygons shading and line types. There are no images. The references are from other files in the same location but there has never been an issue on other jobs. Thank you.

With a file the small there shouldn't be any issues.

 

What OS are you running?  How much RAM?


If you try (on a copy of your file) deleting all the references and choosing import, does that fix it?

@michaelk It is 64 Bit OS Build 19041.804. There is no problem with other files which makes this very confusing.

@michaelk After deleting the references and working in the file the file still crashed after about 10 minutes. To answer your previous question I have 16GB Ram too.

Very strange.

 

If you want to post it here or send it to me in a PM, I'll take a look at it.

It seems that this error may have been fixed by updating Vector works to Version 6. File seems normal now.
Thank you for your help!
