I installed Autodesk Inventor 2012 which I was able to download because I am a student. The version I downloaded however, did not install libraries for the Content Center. The first thing I though was that the Content Center was a feature reserved for purchased versions of the program, but when I head to the downloads section I saw a link to download Content Center Libraries.
I downloaded the ISO and ANSI libraries to try out, and placed them in the directory where Inventor is supposed to search for them. When I started up Inventor, the Content Center was still empty. How can I use the libraries? I suspect Inventor is not reading them because they are Inventor 2010 libraries, but I am unable to use the Update Tool - it appears greyed out.
you can open the Content Cernter setting in the project-> Configure Content Center Libraries, and check whether there is available library(see my attached picture), and there is a link for Content center's library location, you can check whether you copy the Library to this location.
Let me know if it works
Did you try setting the path in the Application Options? Under the File tab there is a place were you can put the location of the "Default Content Center Files". You'll want that path to be where you place the files. (Change either the path or where the files are)
oh, i see the problem from your screenshot, you want to use the 2010 Content center library in 2012 build, it's not work for Standard Libray, it only works on Customer Library.
you can reinstall the Content Center and select your wanted Library or download the 2012 Library files.
I tried to select whether to download 2012 content center libraries or any other version, but I think only the 2010 version is available for dowload. Can you tell otherwise? Also, I read somewhere you could migrate content libratries from one year to another using the update tool, but as I said mine is greyed out - do you know how to fix this?
I recommend you reinstall the Content center, as far as i know, there is no individual 2012 inventor library files in the web for download.
and the Update Tool only works on Customer library, but the libraries you downloaded is standard library, they are read-only, can't be migrated to 2012 by update tool. as for the update tool grey out in your machine, it's because there is no available library in your machine, you can try to create a library, the update tool should be enabled
