Inventor Publisher Not Showing

I downloaded Inventor Publisher free trial from the website (install.exe 8.3MB).

It appears to install fine on my machine but after install its as if nothing happened.


There is no program icon, no folder, no sign of the install...nothing.


I tried rebooting...I tried reinstalling...




Also, my company has budgeted for the license, but we would like to purchase a floating license to have it on the server. Does Autodesk work that way? We presently have Solidworks setup this way.

Let me know,

Try downloading it again.  The file should be much bigger than 8 MB.  Inventor Publisher can be setup a a network license as well.
