Polygon to Raster Conversion Crashes

Discussion created by Sunny1808 on Aug 19, 2012
Hi All

I'm using ArcGIS10 and in acmap when I try to use the tool Polygon to Raster Arcmap will have an error: "background processing has encountered a serious error and is unable to continue" so then I turn of the background processing in the Geoprocessing options and then if I run the tool again Arcmap will just automatically quit.
I've done this process many times before so I have no idea what's actually happening.

Would appreciate some help!
