I am using impressions 3
Windows7 build 7100 x64 Ultimate......ATI Raedon - HD4850, 2.2GHz core 2 duo, 2GB ram.
1) Saving a file as native impression format.
2) Opening a file.
3) Importing an Autocad file.
What happens: Each time i try and do the above the file crashes and doesnt work....goes to the crash screen asking me to send a report to AUTODESK for errors. well i have done that few times already.
I installed impressions in a VISTA x64 ultimate system and worked my way easily without such errors and completed my work, saved the file as native impressions format as well as a pdf for prints later. Basciallly it was the issue of the net framework 3.5 sp1 fault that i dint work earlier on the friends PC. I installed the hotfixes as well as netframework SDK 3.5 SP1 on it and everything worked gr8.
But WINDOW7 is just not budging its way to work....tried reinstalling SDK....tried reinstalling Impressions.....tried to run it as a vista and XP but nothing.
Can AUTODESK please find a fix for this???
However, I think the chances of getting help from Autodesk on an OS that is still in BETA is not that high!
I am now installing in a Vista virtual machine instead until a Win7 compatable release is available.
have similar issues but a little different. HTH...
reinstalled IMP3 and it will import a file on the first session. but it will fail to import any more files after that and bonks! then when running the program again it bonks any time you click the import selection on the file menu. what fun - totally broke.
what is curious is why did it work the very first time and then fail.
I will try and reinstall again. import and then close the session. maybe because it never closed the program properly it is having issues... more later
Just for information, I have the Windows 7 x64 RTM build installed now, and the problem is the same.
I have abandoned running Impression on Windows 7, and run it in a Windows XP Pro Virtual Machine instead. I will wait for a fix from Autodesk before trying it again.
or is auto desk giving up on impression?
it is kinda strange that there is no update since the day of release............
I agree - the silence and lack of updates is odd. I am so impressed with Windows 7 that I intend to update our 3 Vista workstations ASAP, but all of them use Impression now and then and I don't want to install VMWare just to run a virtual XP machine for Impression.
I am sure Impression is still being developed, version 3 has only recently been released...
Is anyone from Autodesk reading this and able to comment?
