Template files - tem;late from one workstn crashes second wrkstn

We are having some annoying difficulty with templates and the template folder. Any IV file from one system copied to an other system will, on that system, crash IV if that file is used as an open new file template.

All three of our systems are identical (acording to PO and invoice).

P4, 2gz, Asus mb, 1gig, W2K, Elsa Synergy 2000, IV 5.3 - sp2

Here is what I did. (Excerpt from IV Help)


------------------------------------------------------------------

All new drawing files are created with a template. You can create your own templates and add them to the templates provided by Autodesk Inventor.

1. Create a new drawing...........

2. Set the drafting standard...........

3. Customize or create the drawing resources...........

4. Note: To copy a drawing resource from one template...........

5. Customize the default sheet and...........

6. Place the default base views and projected views.

7. Set the properties for the file...........

Note: The file standard.idw in the Templates folder...........

------------------------------------------------------------------


Now I give a copy of this file to a coleague. My colaegue attempts to create a new part, or drawing using the new template and Wham! Express exit stage left.

In fact we don't even have to go that far. All I have to do is give him a copy of an original installed (and unaltered) IV idw or ipt from my system and the same result.

Take these suspect files out of the template folder and they open easily as a regular ipt or idw.

The problem ocurrs when one workstation tries to open a new file using a file from another machine as a template.


Any help here is appreciated.
