Reported: October 26, 2017

Problem: After installing the recent Windows 10 Fall Creators Update (version 1709), right-clicking the mouse to open the context menu causes a delay. The duration of this delay varies significantly, and seems to increase depending on how long Windows has been running since the last startup. After this delay occurs and the context menu opens, on subsequent attempts the context menu will open normally without any delay. After you restart the program, the delay will occur again the first time the context menu is opened.

Solution: Affected users must wait through the delay, which will only occur once after starting the program.

Status: MicroSurvey and IntelliCAD are working together to investigate this issue.

Problem: Some users with Windows 10 and "Entrust" software have reported a "digital signature not recognized" error message when they install on their computers. 

Solution: Affected users have reported that the only current solution is to remove Entrust from the computer and then reinstall. MicroSurvey's digital signatures are valid so this is an incorrect error message. For more information on Entrust users can go to

Problem: Opening a Drawing using "Recover" prevents MicroSurvey from properly opening projects.  The General Configurations dialog and various "Smart Entity" features wil not work.

Solution: If you use the "Recover" option to open a drawing, save the drawing once it has been repaired and then open the drawing using project manager.  Also, ensure that you do not have the option "Open drawings using Recover" selected in the CAD Options dialog (type _options to check.)
