Doesn't only freeze when opening an .ipn file. We're trying to open .idw's and have never even created an .ipn presentation file.
We've had this error for the last year or so, since upgrading to IV2014 and Win 8.1 x64. No way to submit an error report because the only way out of it is to kill the process in task manager. Have discussed with our VAR support for several weeks/months to no avail. Only recommendation was to disable every add on we're using as well as the 3D Connexion navigator we use, repair/reinstall IV 2014, upgrade all drivers for absolutely everything. Even went so far as to try all of that and it still happens.
Hoping someone can help with this eventually. We've got 2015 downloaded on subscription but aren't ready to make that jump yet (right in the middle of several big projects). Maybe it's fixed there, if someone can speak to that, we'd appreciate it.

Hi! When did you first notice the behavior? Was it on R2013? Could you try the following and see if it makes a difference?
1) Identify an idw exhibiting the behaivor.
2) Use Pack&Go to make a copy of the idw and its reference ipt and iam files to a different folder.
3) Start Task Scheduler and create a Update Design task pointing to the folder.
4) Run the task.
After that, does the idw still hang on open?
