AutoCAD Crashes Caused by Old Adobe Flash Player

seen on Tom’s blog – Without a Net

Autodesk has been receiving reports of crashes in a variety of Autodesk products ( and versions ) while using the help system or while viewing videos ( such as in the New Feature Workshop ). Audesk has traced the source of these crashes and found them to be caused by having an older version (or corrupted installation) of the Adobe Flash Player on user systems.

In these cases, uninstalling the older version of Flash and then reinstalling a current version from the Adobe website should address the problem.
