When launching an OpenFlows product integrated with AutoCAD 2020 the following unhandled exception occurs;
Unhandled Exception eo434352 (e0434352h) at address f1e0a839h
Starting in February, 2020 this specific unhandled exception began occurring for all users of the AutoCAD 2020 integrated version (reference number 1081177), likely due to a hotfix update from Autodesk which broke the integration. This issue impacts all types of AutoCAD 2020 such as Civil3D and regular AutoCAD.
First before attempting the workaround, note that the OpenFlows products always have a Standalone version available (no extra license required) which has CAD-related functionality (and can work with CAD files) and may suit you needs. See the following article for more: CAD Functionality in Standalone as an Alternative to AutoCAD or MicroStation Integration
If you do need to use the AutoCAD integrated platform, the following workaround should resolve the issue. It assumes the use of the Windows 10 operating system:
1) Close all instances of AutoCAD 2020
2) From the Windows Start menu, search for WordPad, right click and choose Run As Administrator. If you do not have administrative permissions on your computer, please contact your IT/Helpdesk for assistance.
3) In WordPad go to File > Open and choose "all documents" from the dropdown in the lower-right corner. Browse to the AutoCAD installation folder, for example C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD 2020\
Note: if you are using Civil3D or another type of AutoCAD, you would still open it from the "AutoCAD 2020" folder"
3) Locate the file named acad.exe.config and open it.
4) Near the top of the file under the line that reads "<configuration>", add the following:
<startup useLegacyV2RuntimeActivationPolicy="true"> <supportedRuntime version="v4.0"/> </startup>
It should look like this:
5) Save the file and close WordPad. If you encounter an error about not being able to write to the folder due to permissions, you will need to contact your IT/Helpdesk for assistance (or run WordPad as Administrator if you can, per step 2 above.
6) Reopen the "...for AutoCAD" shortcut (such as StormCAD for AutoCAD Civil 3D 2020) - the error should no longer occur.
In other cases, this unhandled exception may also be due to incorrect or incomplete installation of AutoCAD 2020. This interferes when interacting with OpenFlows products in the AutoCAD environment and the unhandled exception occurs when you launch the integrated version.
This may be resolved with a clean uninstall and reinstall of the AutoCAD 2020 application. Once AutoCAD 2020 is successfully re-installed you can re-integrate your OpenFlows product/s by going to Start > Bentley > Integrate “Product_Name” with AutoCAD. After this is done, try re-opening the integrated version. As mentioned above another workaround to this would be using the standalone version of the OpenFlows product and leverage the CAD functionality of OpenFlows products. (see link below)
