Is there any way to get AI 2013 or 2014 to run with Windows 8.1? I had been using it with windows 7 then when I upgraded I recieve an error message and Inventor wont open. All of the other programs that came with prossetional work such as the trueview and design review it is just inventor that wont open?
Please help if you can I have been doing on going design with inventor for school and I would hate to have to switch CAD programs!
looks like you either have to roll back to windows 7 , or as you said roll over to a new CAD platform.
Just a side note, always research compatibilty before making such drastic changes to an already working system.
The other thread is mostly about AI 2013.
My AI 2014 (also Autocad Mech 2014) appears to work just fine with the latest Win 8.1P (surprised me lol).
I probably should mention i have Autocad Inventor 2014 SP1 and Autocad Mechanical 2014 SP1 too (and there's an autocad hotfix for 8.1 that i just plugged in). (Be sure it's the SP1 type.)
We are issuing dll's that will fix the win8.1 issues for Inventor 2012 & 2013, on a request-only basis at this point. Official hotfixes will be released in the coming weeks.
If you need the fixed dll's then please contact me directly as there are some very specific manual install steps required.
