I am currently experiencing this error when basically putting an Inventor 2012 file (part or assembly) on a flash drive and then loading the file(s) onto a different computer with Inventor 2011 installed. Once in Inventor 2011 and trying to open the necessary file(s) I receive this error. Is there some difference between the 2011 and 2012 files that is causing this to happen? Or the face that I am using the student version of both?
I attached the file I am trying to open.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Native Inventor files are not backward compatible. The only way to open IV2012 files in a IV2011 system is to export the IV2012 files to a neutral format and import them into IV2011. This will lose all model feature tree history.
I am getting this same error message under similar circumstances. I copied the file to a flash drive and onto another computer, however, the original file is 2011 and the program trying to load is 2012. Along with this, at the same time, I'm getting the message "Error Loading segment AMAPPSegment in database..." help?
Check the directory that you have copied it to. You might not have permissions, or the directory may be a Library. When in doubt. Power down the system and do a restart.
I have all the appropriate accesses and in the same directory are some files that will open, some that will not, all part files and they are not library files, none of the obvious. And, it is occurring at multiple workstations with the same files only now it just says it cant open the file and crashes Inventor. Part files, not assemblies, simple uncomplicated small files.
Ive been getting a similar issue with error in reading RSe stream,and thats just opening files,not of a flash drive,now I was running 2011 and still am,and my tutorial files vanished out of my projects box so cant open 6 months of work,this all seems to have happened since I downloaded inv 2012,strange!!! Now opening 2011 files in 2012 ,convert to step files and 2012 will open but without history tree which is a pain depending on what your doing but theirs a solution,go to autodesk labs and download feature recognition enabler and this will let you rebuild the history tree in 2012,I know some of this is of topic but some of it might help with opening older release files and reconstructing your history tree,I found this out the hard way,2012 is great but so is 2011,there is not that much difference,I do like the way it renders your part when change the visual style to realistic,thats cool but if you didnt have it ,it wouldnt be the end of the world as you can produce great renders in 2011 and its more hands on so you learn more!
