hi, i need help..
i was searching for a way to change the color of the project geometry,,
i've found this via the cad setter out
i have install the color scheme editor
i did a backup of the registry using the reg export and save it elsewhere in my cpu
i've made one change to a color then it save
when i open inventor all the color scheme are messed up...
i was using winter night...and now my background color is green....in the part/assembly environement as well as in the drawing environnment...
i've try reopening the color scheme editor, fisrt it wont stop showing error message.. and even after i import the reg back up i've made and the change i've made is back to what it was before
i still have the green background...
i've also try to repair the program witch change nothing..
before reinstalling what can i do
do you have any suggestion on that paul?
if i reinstall inventor would it solve this problem...
and what am i going to loose in the process??
i'm really stuck with this one , and i need to work with inventor today....
This isn't going to be much help but I wanted to let you know that we looked into this and received the following response (taken from the Readme file of the bonus tools).

Again I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but I'm hoping that we can get additional community involvement on this thread to discover a potential workaround.
but autodesk must know a way to reset the change made buy this application , no?
but now i must find a way to undo the damage
i don't really want to do it but if i uninstall inventor and reinstall it, will that restore my color
if i would have know it will cost me that much trouble just to change the color of some line
let me tell you that i wouldnt done it
and why do we need an outside application to change what color that type of line use etc....
Did you do a backup of the entire registry?
Is it possible that you didn't have write access to a portion of the registry when you tried to restore the registry? Where you using an administrator account?
yes i did a backup as and how they suggest it when opening the read me file with the color scheme editor...
and for the adminstrator part... inventor is install on my computer, i dont have server or limitation since i work alone..
but if you need to set some thing up to have the possibility to rewrite the registry, then i'm not sure i was autorize to write access
whats weird is when i reopen the color scheme editor everything seem fine, the color show for each scheme seems ok..
and when i open a part file, check the attachements to see what i see
Thant could be caused by Inventor using the wrong background picture?
This post explains the steps to change it...
