Hi i am having the same problem. Running windows 7, 64 bit, downloaded publisher 2013 and can not get it to open. I can double click the desktop icon and sometimes nothing happens, other times (only 10%) of the times the program starts to open and then the windows message "Inventor publisher has stopped working" comes up and i can go no further. I've tried looking for the inventor publisher 2013 file in appdata but there wasn't one, i created a folder and still not joy. I'm now at a loss, can anyone help?
