Hey Everyone,

 

I have recently changed computers, I am apart of a Flexi license system. Now my problem is when i go into Application options and change where to open my templates from it does not save when i quit Inventor. I have also notcied small things like the reverse cusor button i always click but everytime i get out of Inventor it defaults. Does anyone have any thoughts or idea what is going on here? Thanks Alot

 

(Pictures: One is the custom templates i would like to use. I am selecting them in Application Options/ Templates than applying and closing. Then when i am fnished with Inventor for the day and shut down and the next day when i come back it defaults back to the default templates)

 

I know it should save because it used to on my previous computer.

System information helps, hardware and O/S.

 

You followed all the pre-requisites for installation:

1.) Logged in with Administrative Priv

2.) UAC slider set to lowest position

3.) Some Anti/Virus software prevents the Windows Registry from updating, so turning the A/V off may be required.

4.) You are using an approved O/S, Win8 is not an approved O/S, SP1.1 will help but not fix all issues.

Check with Task-Manager and see that you don't have another instance of Inventor running. Changes are written when the program closes. If Inventor doen't close properly you changes won't be saved. Possibly try changing your Windows Log-In and see if your exisitng Profile has been damaged. Run Inventor and make the changes and see if they stick.

As Blair states, App Options are saved when you exit Inventor.  They are saved to the registry in your profile, so this is likely a registry access issue.  It's also possible that Inventor isn't exiting properly, but in that case you should see other indications.

 

Try logging in with a different account; if that doesn't work, you may have to reinstall with all the steps that Blair recommended.
