When opening files in Inventor 2013 we have a number of systems getting “Improper Argument” and then Inventor crashes. We are running Building 176 of 2013 sp1.1
Is this a known issue?
I've attached one of the files causing the issue.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I was able to open the file and perform an Extrude without issue. I have Update 2 installed.
Try going to Tools>Application Options>Hardware tab and set on lowest setting. Does that help?
What version of inventor are you running? On what OS? Brad
Information in my signature. Added info to response that I also have Update 2.
Win 7 Home Premium
I suspect that only your VAR sitting at your machines will be able to solve this problem.
Can you verify if full permissions have been set to these folders? It is our best practice to allow users full permissions, but where this can't be done, Autodesk software needs full permission to:
The folder the program was installed in c:\program files\AutoCAD 2011 (for example)
c:\documents and settings\all users\application data\Autodesk
c:\documents and settings\<the current user>\application data\Autodesk
c:\program files\common files\autodesk shared
C:\Users\<the current user>\AppData\Local\Autodesk
C:\Users\<the current user>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared
C:\Program Files\Autodesk *
We are running Windows 7.
I was able to push everything except the following out through Group Policy:
and it still didn't work. I actually got an error about not being able to access the registry when Inventory was opened. Any ideas how to push out hte setting above or why I got that message?
