Problem - Import DWG into Inventor Sketch - Layers unavailable

Hello,

 

A couple of days ago when I went to shut down my computer ran windows updates automatically and the next morning these updates failed and the previous setting were re-configured. Windows updates ran again the next night and updated sucessfully.

 

Since then I have been having problems importing autocad into a sketch. In the Layers and Objects Import Options dialog box, the layers are not shown and the autocad objects can not be individually selected.

 

Having searched on here and it seems to suggest a problem with either AOEMViewer or DWG TrueView corrupting, although some people after uninstalling and reinstalling these viewers still experienced the problem.

 

I was wondering if this is the solution to the problem or if there is a hotfix to solve it without having to un/reinstall programs.

 

Regards,

Seems like you may need to reinstall DWG Trueview.

The versions of Inventor and DWG True View must match with each other. Which version of DWG True View are you using? The expected version should be 2010.

 

It seems your issue is similar with that described here (http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=17197674&linkID=9242018).

Inventor and DWG True View both 2010, and installed from the same Inventor disk.

 

Thanks for the link, I will look into that as it does seem to described my problem.

I did do a good search on different descriptions but it's a mine field on here really!

 

Regards,
