Unable to place substructure (Pier or Abutment) and the program is crashing

The program crashes with an exception log showing the following:

"Exception : This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms."

To resolve the issue one needs to open the Local Group Policy Editor and Disable the FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards).

You may need to take IT help if you don't have access to the Local Group Policy Editor
