I am using TurboCad Pro Platinum 20 on a PC that is using windows 8. Until just recently I was on dial-up and could not do updates. We finally got High Speed internet. I did the update and now I cannot open any of my drawings. When I try TurboCad just crashes. I hope someone can help me. Thanks Carroll

first off, I would suggest downloading the full build from here:


Next, uninstall your version of TC, then install full build version, perhaps turning off any anti-virus software, just in case.
Then, run as Administrator, for the first time only, and see what happens!

I hope this helps.

Thanks Tim and Dave,, I did what Tim said and that fixed my problem, but I will also do as Dave told me. I am sure it needs updated also. Thanks again both of you Carroll
