Autodesk Inventor 2011 crashes when converting 3D Model > Drawing

Autodesk Inventor Professional 2011 will crash when we try open a 3D model (Inventor Component) as a Baseline View for a new "Drawing" file.


To replicate the error, we draw a simple Circle and extrude it so it is then a 3D Model. We then create a new "Drawing" file, click the Baseline View button at the top left, and then select the 3D Model Inventor file (the extruded circle). The program crashes and we get the following error from Autodesk Software, NOT Windows.



Version: 150239000 AIP


This is for our college...  students need to perform this action for their exam. We have had success using the same software and OS configuration, along with the same steps listed above, on different machines on campus. Not sure what is causing the error on these machines.

have you tried to replace the IDW template with one from the machines that work. Sounds like your template may have been corupted some how.

Please mark this response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers your question.

We are experiencing the same problem on one machine. The templates were downloaded from Vault as with other machines and we still experience the same problem.
