Cannot Install Inventor Optimization

Hi Everyone,


I posted this one in Inventor section, but I thought I probably should have posted it here.


I am on subscription; have Autodesk Product Design Suite Premium 2012 SP2,  Update 2 installed. When trying to install inventoroptimizationupdate.exe, I get an error message: "Autodesk Product Design SuitePremium or Ultimate is required to support Autodesk Inventor Optimization".


Any help will be highly appreciated as I was not able to find any solution up to now.


Thank you,

Thank you for having posted your question in this discussion group.

Here is an interesting link on this subject.

Remark: This package should include the SP1 and could create a conflict when installing on SP2 update 2 already installed.

Let me know if you would need more info on this subject.

I hope that will help.

Hi Nicolas,


I have uninstalled again service pack 2 and this time I manage to install the patch for inventor optimization.

I now re-installed inventor service pack 2 and the update.

The problem I face now is that Optimize and Results buttons are greyed out. I'll probably start another post for this topic.


Thank you,
