Etabs Freezing Issue Etabs Freezing Issue david_lyanov (Structural) (OP) 12 Oct 22 09:37 thread802-491397: Etabs Freezing Issue I can't even create a grid system or a blank model without it completely freezing everything. Can anyone help? RE: Etabs Freezing Issue JoshPlumSE (Structural) 12 Oct 22 13:58 David - I've experienced similar issues with other programs (not ETABS). The solution for those programs was to completely uninstall the program, delete the directory it had been installed into, then then re-install it into a totally different directory. In the case of the other program, the issue was caused by one of the following: a) a corrupted file in the program directory that was loaded when the program started and caused the program to be unstable. Hence the deleting of the original install directory. b) a bad Registry setting. Hence the uninstall of the program, which should remove the offending registry entries. No promises that this will work. But, I thought I'd share in case it helps.
