I've seen this error a few times. You launch AutoCAD 2015 or double click a drawing and receive the error "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005)."
Autodesk has a lengthy kb article on all the different things that can cause the problem, we went through most of them on this case.
What we found out is that there is a program called "Digital Guardian", yes, protection software.
Once we "whitelisted" the Autodesk .exe files it ran fine!
Autodesk programs use a lot of .exe files. If you have multiple Autodeks programs installed, then I'd search for .exe under the following folders and add them:
If you have older programs then they may not be installed under C:\Program Files\Autodesk, they may be under something like C:\Program Files\AutoCAD 2011, so check any of those folders too.
- C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared
- C:\Program Files(x86)\Common Files\Autodesk Shared
Once whitelisted, try running AutoCAD again. It should open up fine!
