Office 2010 error ""Microsoft Office Word has stopped working"

Do you get the following errors when exiting Word 2010 or other office programs?

  1. "Microsoft Office Word has stopped working" on exit, OR
  2. "Microsoft is trying to recover your information"

Try the following fix:
  1. Open up Regedit. (Go to Start and type "regedit" in the search field and press enter.)
  2. In Regedit navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Word\Data
  3. Right mouse click on the "Data" folder and delete it.
  4. Open up Word, close it, and voila, problem solved.
The above fix also works for Office 2007. Just replace 14.0 with 12.0 in Step 2.

3D Modelling Workspace in Autocad Architecture 2010

If any of you are wondering how to access 3D modelling workspace in autocad architecture 2010, do the following.

  1. Click on A icon on the top left corner of the screen and go to Options
  2. Go to Profiles and select AutoCAD. Click on Set Current and OK.
  3. Now the 3D workspace should be enabled under 'workspace switching' icon

Thanks to CTT for the tip :)

Now why wasn't this enabled in the first place??

Because the objects in AutoCAD Architecture software describe real-world building components, both 2D and 3D representations can be created automatically and either can be used for viewing or editing. This capability conveniently integrates 2D and 3D functionality and enables exploration of design ideas within CAD in a fashion similar to the way architects and designers envision their designs.

Using 3D is not required in AutoCAD Architecture software; you can incorporate 3D into your design process at your own pace.
