I am a first time user, installed ShareNow, pressed the Share\Publish current document to Freewheel and it returns an error.
"Error publishing active document to sharing: The remote server retunred an error: (407) Proxy Authentication Required."
What do I do?

1. You can contact your IT department to see if they allow files to be
uploaded to the internet from your network. If so, you may need to change
some of your settings to allow ShareNow to upload via your proxy.
2. You can try sharing in 2 steps.
a. Publish your DWF file from your application.
b. Navigate to http://freewheel.labs.autodesk.com and use File->Open to
upload the DWF file you published in step a.

Scott,
1. I am checking with our IT on your first suggestion.

2. I publish a dwf as you say, then File>Open and I get a " No renderable sections found! ". Could this still be the network issue from above.

Are you sure you have a DWF. You can email me the file and I will check it
out. Maybe the DWF just has BOM data and no 2D sheets or 3D models.

Scott,
Sorry for the delay. I was off on vacation and now have dug my way out of the pile on my desk-
I have attached the file.

This is a measurement disabled DWF file. I didn't even think to ask about
that. Much like the fine print on a home loan application :-), information
that Project Freewheel does not currently support measurement disabled DWF
files is located on page:

http://freewheel.labs.autodesk.com/learnmore.aspx

If you change your Inventor settings to publish a DWF file without any
digital rights disablements, Project Freewheel should be able to view it.

I read the fine print but (obviously) did not follow instructions.
I remade the dwf and it worked. Great! However, the person I asked to join had to login to participate. Is this how it is suppose to work?

Yes. when he logs in and makes comments, Project Freewheel will attribute
the comments to him. When he logs in and looks at "My Sessions" he can get
back to the review of your design that he participated in. Logging in is a
good thing. Registration is free. We don't SPAM you.
