currently I am working with inv 13 and tried to open 12. please refer to the msg attached. That's fine for me as i am not trying to work in both. this is just a comment.
Opening two versions of Inventor at once is asking for trouble. They are "competing" for the same resources, such as the right-click menus and other things.
Thankfully I have not worked with both open,it just happened by mistake that they were both opened so I just shut it down,was working on a ipt file in 2011 and went to open another file and 2012 opened so just shut it down,is their a way of checking that 2011 is registering properly with windows as its only 2011 that does this not 2012 and I dont want to cause any problems,have it on a lenovo a310 ideacenter but once the funds are right I will put one on a laptop,want to get lenovo G570 as this has 2 gb dedicated graphics,8gb ram,750 hdd and a i5 or i7 processor and is a really good price for all that and never had a problm with what I have,picture is HD Aand have not seen better anywhere,didnt know that they came from IBM or they bought out IBM,we have an old one and the things bullet proof!
One way to find out which version is currently registered is to right click on an Inventor file (ipt, iam, etc.) and choose iProperties. On the General tab, it reports which version it opens with, and that should be the currently registered version. The Details tab reports the actual version that the file was last saved with, but the General tab simply reports which version of Inventor is registered to open that file type.
Hi Sam,thanks for trying to help but I seem to be having so many issues Im getting overwhelmed,I opened 2011 just know and tried to open one of my tutorial files,no joy,they have gone from my projects box so cant get to any of my work??? So I opened one of the cadlearning files as I know their in the projects box and clicked,I opened the alloy wheel,a simple part,at first I get a dialog box top left,something about cant open xml files but it opens part anyway,clicked on the I icon and clicked iproperties and it wouldnt open,another box opened and this is what it said,Plugin not available or not properly installed.Notify the system administrator that the instalation is incomplete DTCP.
I have no idea whats going on Sam as Ive been using this for over 7-8 months and no problems,when it gives me the message about registering and I click ok ,it turns of 2011 and then turns on 2012??? I am at a lost,cant get to my study work,dont understand system administrator and the DTCP,all I did was download certified professional files to help me with exam and you have to go onto autodesk education community for it,I need help to sort this one as it doesnt make sense,what do you think Sam?
