Freezing up

Recommended Posts

I have Chief Architect 5. When I am working on something all of a sudden it freezes up. I can measure something and it will freeze, and the whole computer freezes. The only thing we have been able to come up with is possible Window 10 did an update and Chief 5 is not compatible with it. Has anyone else experienced this?

Version 5, or X5?

Still could be a compatibility problem with Windows 10.  You might be able to set Chief X5 to run in a compatibility mode - or it could be that X5 was only 32 bit and that's causing the problem.  I really don't know, just throwing out possibilities.

I appreciate the help. X5 is 62 bit but everything I'm coming up with seams to go back to window s10

I have Chief 7 through X11 active on my Windows 10 PC (7, 9.5 and X1 are installed in a separate hard drive that runs on Windows XP Pro x32). However, the rest (X1- X11) all run happily on Windows 10 with ZERO problems and for many years.

 

I keep my PC clean (I physically clean my case monthly), virus-free, malware-free and all drivers up to date. I have run Windows 10 since it was first released in Beta. The only trouble I ever had with X5 was a mouse driver that, once updated I no longer had any crashes or freezes (it only takes one mouse driver or video card driver to screw things up, Check for that first, then make sure your machine is cleaned and protected/maintained.
