when I try to use the VIEWBASE command to create views from my 3D solids, I always get the message "inventor server failed to load" and the command stops. I am using AutoCAD 2014 with SP1 installed on windows 8 .
In a similar message in the 2010/2011/2012 discussion group:
You are not alone in that. I am currently downloading Autodesk Inventor 2014 Service pack 1. I am running Building Design Suite Ultimate 2014 on Windows 8.1. but Inventor fails to launch, thats why I downloaded sp1 If it works...Oh well..
