Plant 3D startup Hanging

One issue we have seen a couple times is that periodically when running on a network project, AutoCAD Plant 3D may hang at the startup screen.


Thankfully, there is an easy fix called the PnPLocalDataCachePurger.exe.  The program is located in your installation directory:

“C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2012 – English\PnPLocalDataCachePurger.exe”

A blog article by Mangesh Kalbhor gives more information on it:

You may want to put a shortcut on your desktop for the LDC Purger.
