i have installed SW2013 on my laptop HP 8740w where i also have SW2012 installed as well. It seemd to bw working fine, then one day no matter what i did, 2013 would crash. for example insertting a plane wouidl crash it.
so i did a repair. no luck.
uninstalled and reinstalled no luck.
did a restore point to undo a microsoft update. no luck
updated my video driver. no luck
the other disconcerning issues is it takes an hour to install be it from the cd or from my hard drive yet does not take nearly as long on my desktop.i have both 2012 and 2013 running on my desktop with no problems, but i cannot get it to run again on my laptop.
i have now removed 2012 and 2013 and am reinstalling 2013 for the 4th time. before i did this i removed all old folders and all entries in the registry. it is still installing and looking at the processors, they are nearly idle and it is at 56% for nearly and hour.
