2012 Inventor Fusion Error - Realistic Visual Style

2727 Views, 8 Replies

I get the following error when I try to launch Fusion from within Inventor (or on it's own):

The application is unavailable.
    We’re sorry, there was an error while initializing the graphics subsystem.  This is likely due to one or more of the following:  your graphics driver is not configured for "True Color", there was a problem installing the application, the application installation was damaged, or some other problem with the graphics hardware and drivers or the configuration of the application.  More detailed information may be included below.

Also, when I try to switch to Realistic Visual Style, it will not allow me to. When I go into Application Options, Hardware, and try to set it for Quality it always goes back to Compatibility.

My video card info is:

Can you please confirm if the issue with Fusion 2012 is that it does not start, and that all other issues you describe relate specifically to Inventor 2012?

 

Regarding Fusion, can you uninstall Fusion and reinstall it to make sure that it installed correctly? Thanks.

Hi, I also have the same problem with Fusion - did uninstalling and reinstalling Fusion fix this error?

 

Cheers, Mick

Since the OP mentioned several issues, could you please be specific about what you are seeing?

 

Specifically, could you launch Fusion 2012 directly (rather than invoking through Inventor) and do a simple operation like creating a box?

 

Thanks.

Problem fixed.....first time ever that I had an issue due to installing software with my anti-virus still on. I've installed hundreds of programs before, and this is the first time ever that I had to shut it off to do an install.

When I start Fusion (either standalone or from inside Inventor 2012) I get the fusion splash screen and then the following error:

 

The application is unavailable.

See the attached screen capture.

 

I have an Dell T3500 workstation with dual Nvidia FX580 graphics.

The following excerpt is from Fusion help. Could you please send the output file to me (udaya.gunasena at autodesk.com) to confirm that your system is qualified for graphics? Thanks.

 

"Test your Graphics Card Capabilities:

The Inventor Fusion Install directory (C:\Program Files\Autodesk\ Inventor Fusion Technology Preview 3) or the equivalent on your machine, contains a Graphics Capabilities Application, AdskDiagOutput.exe.

Open a command prompt; Start MenuRun cmd, and navigate to this folder. Enter AdskDiagOutput f> out.txt and press ENTER. The program runs and produces an output file called out.txt or any other name you choose."

It's not clear from your post if you were successful in creating the output file. If you did have problems creating this file could you please describe them. Otherwise could you send the output file to us, so that we can analyze what the cause may be.

 

Thanks
