If the above suggestion does not work, you may consider uninstalling and reinstalling DWG TrueView 2014 on your system.

 

  1. Browse to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features
  2. Right click on DWG TrueView 2014
  3. Select Uninstall/Change
  4. Follow prompts to Uninstall or Remove the progrram
  5. Download and Run Installer for DWG TrueView

Let me know if this helps.

 

Thanks,

Can you confirm that the operating system you are currently using is Windows 8.1?

 

Have you tested the solution posted by Sami in the other discussion (steps below)

1. Press [Windows] key to open the Windows' start page

2. Type "cmd" to find "Command Prompt" > right mouse click on it  > select "Run as administrator"

3. On "Administrator: Command Prompt" window, type (no quotes)  "cd c:\program files\autodesk\Inventor 2014\bin"

4. Type (no quotes)  "inventor.exe /install" 

5. Press Enter

6. Wait for 1 min (inventor will be executed background then exit silently)

 

 

A couple of other suggestions to try:

 

Lower User Account Control Settings to the "Never Notify" setting

1. Browse to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts

2. Select "Change User Account Control Settings"

3. Lower the slider bar to the "Never Notify" position (all the way to the bottom)

4. OK

5. Restart Computer and retest

 

Run Inventor as Administrator:

1. Right Mouse Click on the launch icon for Autodesk Inventor 2014

2. Select the Run As Administrator

3. Retest

 

Test disabling anti-virus software temporarily to see if there is a conflict between Inventor 2014 and your anti-virus software. You will need to consult with the anti-virus software company for details on how to accomplish this. 

 

Please keep us posted on your progress.

 

Thanks,
