Possibly try a Repair, from the Control Panel>Programs and Updates. If that doesn't work a un-install and fresh install of the program.


If you need to un-install, Google "Autodesk, +Inventor, +clean install. Autodesk has a utility to clean up your system.


Did you follow the proper pre-requisites for the Inventor install.

1.) logged in with Administrative privileges

2.) UAC slider set to lowest setting (turned off)

3.) Anti-Virus software disabled.

4.) You are current with .NET 4.0 on your system
