Trivial, but maybe of interest

IV6 and IV5 coexist on my home machine.
This morning I tried to replace the annoying connect.wav file with
something less annoying. I renamed the old file connect_old.wav and
inserted a different sound file and renamed it connect.wav. This file is
located in c:\program files\autodesk\inventor 6\bin. Fired up IV6 and
tested the sound on an assembly. Surprisingly, the same old "conk" sound
presented itself when I created the constraint.
Then I did a search on my drive for other instances of "connect.wav". It
found the other instance in c:\program files\autodesk\inventor 5\bin.
After replacing that file with my new sound file, IV6 played the
correct sound. I did the swap while IV6 was running.

Does this perhaps indicate that IV6 is using other IV5 components as
well? If so, does this account for some of the IV6 instability problems
that so many people are having? Certainly for those with only IV6 on
fresh OS installs this theory would not have much credibility. Any thoughts?

Jon,
I believe that this happened on your PC by accident. I did similar (well,
deleted the IV5.3 connect.wav so IV5.3 kept silent) and still had the IV6
connect.wav, until I deleted this one too.
