hi,

 

I don't see inventor view object in excel's object list. I see it before I install solidworks. Is it related? even I dont think so.

 

How can I get "inventor view object" back into excel's object list? I want to insert it into excel sheet.

 

I am using inventor 2012 sp1, window 7 sp1 & excel 2007. thanks a lot.

From Help:

 

Register the InventorViewCtrl.ocx file in a command window if this is the first time you are embedding Autodesk Inventor View.

  1. From the Windows Start menu, select Run.
  2. Type "command" or "CMD" in Windows NT, Windows 2000 or Windows XP to start the command window.
  3. In the command window, navigate to the following location assuming that Autodesk Inventor View is installed in the default location (C:\Program Files [(x86)]\Autodesk\Inventor2012\Bin) and type 'regsvr32.exe InventorViewCtrl.ocx', and then press Enter.

I have the same problem and put in a ticket to Autodesk I believe this is a bug. I have also tried to register the ocx file as an administrator and non administrator. Doing that did not update the list within excel for me, so right now im at a loss.
