I just started getting this message when trying to access Content Center from IV2010 on 64bit system running XP O.S.
The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disk that is not available. Insert the "VBA (2627.01)" disk and click OK.
I can cancel out of this but have to repeat it 3 times before it actually gets to the content center, and then everything seams to work ok. Sometimes after clicking cancel the 3rd time, I get an error message that says
"Autodesk Inventor 32-bit Host has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." I can click close, but Inventor is still up and running fine.
Does anybody have any ideas what's going on here and how to fix? I'm gonna guess that is has something to do with running a 64 bit system? with XP O.S.? But I really don't know, I'm completely guessing. Any help would be appreciated.
I have been using IV2010 for some time now without any issues. Just recently I have been getting these messages. I am running a single computer with all content center content on my local hard drive. Also, I just noticed that I not only get the messages when I try to open content center, but also sometimes when activating a part in an assembly (not even a content center part), or trying to access the tools such as Customize, VBA editor, and Macros under the tools tab.
Might there be some other program on my computer that is interfering? Do you know why it say that Inventor 32-bit Host has encountered a problem? Should I not be using the 64-bit host for my 64bit system? Just throwing out questions because I really have no clue as to what all the VBA stuff is all about.
Not everything running in Inventor or other programs is running in 64
bit mode. There's a lot of "universal code" in about all packages
(Autodesk, Adobe, Techsmith, Accounting packages, even Microsoft that is
still 32 bit code, and shared with both 32 and 64 bit OS's. The Flex
licensing system, Vault, ADMS, and other modules are 32 bit. That's also
why you have a Programs Files adn Program Files (x86 ) folder on your
system. the 32 bit apps reside in the latter.
Open your (x86) folder and you will be astounded just how many apps from
everyone is still running in 32 bit emulation. Here's a screenshot of mine:
