    Introduction

    AutoCAD 2016 may crash on launch with Application Manager 8.9 installed.

     

    Detail

    AutoCAD crashes shortly after loading in the Application Manager DLL AMAppHook.dll during the process initialization.

     

    This issue can be resolved by upgrading to Application Control 10.1.  Alternatively the issue may also be resolved by adding a brief delay to when AMAppHook.dll is loaded into the process acad.exe:

     

    • Load the Application Manager configuration within the Application Manager Console.
    • Manage Tab -> Advanced Settings -> Custom Settings -> Add
    • Custom setting: AppHookDelayLoad
    • Custom Setting Value: acad.exe,1000
