I've run the spreadsheet portion of Microsoft Works, but I'm not sure what you mean by "accepting the EULA". Which program would i accept this in (Works or Inventor)? Is it something that should pop up right away when I open the program? Sorry about all the questions. I'm pretty new to this, so I don't quite understand all these things.
Yes in Works. Microsoft products have a "End User License Agreement" that must be acknowledged accepting the terms of the software.
Ok I think I know what you mean now. You're talking about when I install it? If so, I'm assuming that it already has been accepted, because I didn't install Works. I got my computer used, and it was already on there. If I'm wrong and that's not when I would accept it, where do I go in Works to accept the EULA?
I also was trying to find the registry edit post in the forum, but couldn't seem to find it. I'll keep looking around, but if anyone has a link to it, that would be greatly appreciated.
Must have been another thread for a different topic.
So do you know how to edit the registry then? I got open office, so if i can get it to work with that, that would be great. I really don't want to have to pay for Excel if I can help it.
It must have been a thread for a different topic. You need Microsoft Excel to be able to use the Thread Function along with a couple of other features.
Well, I don't know how easily you'll believe this, but I think you might be wrong about that, because I just got it to work with Open Office. No registry edit or anything like that. I just ran Inventor and clicked the thread command and it worked. I think since my computer doesn't have Excel, Inventor was just looking for a spreadsheet program that can use .xls files, and found Open Office. That's my theory anyway. So I'm just going to accept this post as the solution. If you don't have Excel, then Open Office should work.
Thanks for your help guys. It was much appreciated.
