    Neither solution worked for me on Windows 10 64 bit. Is there something else to try?

    PVCad won't uninstall either, so I can't try re-installing it.

    I was finally able to uninstall and reinstall, and I keep getting the same error. After I close it's window, I also get this error:

     
    "FATAL ERROR: Unhandled Access Violation Reading 0x0098 Exception at aeabb23h"
     
    Your help will be appreciated.

    I uninstalled the .NET Framework 4.7 for Windows 10 Version 1607/Windows Server 2016 (KB3186568) update, and installed .NET Framework 4.6.2 from the offline installer at https://www.microsoft.com/es-es/download/details.aspx?id=53344 

    I followed the instructions in the 'Detecting the .NET Framework' section of this article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotnet/framework/deployment/deployment-guide-for-developers to determine that the DWORD "Release" value in the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\NET Framework Setup\NDP\v4\Full folder is 394802, indicating that my version is .NET Framework 4.6.2 installed on Windows 10 Anniversary Edition.

    PVCAD still won't run, even after I uninstalled and reinstalled it, and I'm on .NET Framework 4.6.2 and on Windows 10 Version 1607 (I'm not on the Windows Creator Update). Solution #3 seems to be incomplete or erroneous.

    Microsoft has published an early access .NET Framework 4.7.1:

     Has it been tested by Autodesk or PVComplete? Does it fix the crashes?
