Hey! This is my first posting here. I havent really looked around the posts a lot but heres my problem.
I am using Inventor 2013 64 bit. When I open some drawings with multiple sheets, sometimes theres a certain sheet that will crash my Inventor session. So lets say that I have a drawing with 5 sheets. I open it and all the sheets have a red lightning bolt beside them meaning I need to update those sheets. So I go to sheet 2 and everything is fine. Sheet 3 is fine. Then I go to sheet 4 and Inventor crashes. So I restart Inventor and open the same drawing and again when I try to update or go to sheet 4, Inventor will always crash down on that sheet yet every other sheet seems to work fine. Now the drawing was made using 2012 version so Im not sure if that has anything to do with it.
I did some search in google and in the discussions and found something about unchecking the 'enable background updates' box. This seems to work and lets me open that sheet 4 of that drawing. Now my question is...Do I have to leave that box unchecked? The thing is after updating that drawing and saving everything, I rechecked the box, closed down inventor, reopen inventor. I then revised my assembly model by increasing the length of one part. I then reopened that drawing......and again it crashes on me. If I dont revise the assembly, the drawing opens up fine even when the box is checked. As soon as I revise the assembly, drawing crashes again when that box is checked.
Do i need to leave that box unchecked? I was thinking that maybe it only happens with the drawings I made with 2012 version.
Back-up all your existing IV2012 files (copy to DVD)
Run the Task Manager, and migrate only the IPT files on the first run.
After that is done, run the Task Manager again and migrate all the IAM files.
Open the IAM file for the drawing that is giving you problems and check that everything is fine with the model.
Finally open the IDW drawing file and see if the problem has solved itself.
The setting is trying to update the existing views on the other pages in the background while you are looking at a given page. If you have a problem with one of the other views on another page, eventually it will get to the viewing question and crash.
Sounds like there is something wrong with the model prior which is causing the drawing to faultier.
