Here's the IV transaltions, no problem here. You might consider re-installing MDT using the link I sent RayFeiler

Hello Frank,

 

What's your installation sequence of the MDT 2009 and Inventor 2012? The Inventor 2012 should be installed after  MDT 2009. Otherwise inventor will crash.

 

In your 5th step, the runtime error may result in inventor crashes. If the CER dialog pops up, please add some information and send the CER report. Also paste the information you added here. Then I can find the CER report and make the detailed analysis.

Please have a try to refresh the registry information with the command line "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2012\Bin\Inventor.exe /INSTALL".

Same result as before. I see two different installers. Can you post a screen shot that only shows one installer for 2010, 11 and 12? Are you using Inventor Pro or Ultimate? I just have Product Design Suite Premium.

Sometimes you just need a good old reboot.

jeffrey now I’m really confused. This is the Readme file for the 2012 installer.

Howdy Mr.. Jeffery,

 

I believe that when I re installed windows, a couple months ago, I installed Inventor 2011, then tried to install MDT, and it didnt work, so then I installed Inventor 2012 (autodesk product design suite) then I installed MDT. Inventor seems to run just fine as I have done it.  The only time inventor crashes (as far as I have found) is if I try to import mdt files.

 

Yes after I get that runtime error, Inventor does crash.  I dont know what CER means

Yes, that's the same.

I just didn't look further south than where it said installer for 2012.

Seems to work okay for me, except that it's complaining about not having the latest version of trueview (imports the model but not the 2-d). I'll try installing latest trueview and see what happens.

Installed trueview 2012 and the complete translation works great.

 

Why was I not able to edit my previous post???
