Our client has installed Product Design Suite 2012 on an XP SP3 system with an Intel chipset for video.
Sketchbook Designer Works
AutoCAD Mechanical Starts, but displays a message "An Autodesk product failed to send the required value for SERIALNUM. The error report sent to Autodesk may be incomplete." Mechanical appears to work after that message is dismissed.
Inventor Crashes at startup, crash report sent
Showcase Crashes at startup, crash report sent
3ds Max Design Works
Mudbox Crashes, crash report sent.
The client has uninstalled, cleaned registry/folders, and reinstalled. The problems persist.
They appear to have an Internet connection. Crash reports are being successfully sent and replies received.
Advice to resolve this would be appreciated.
I Have the same problem :
PDSP 2012, Standalone licence.
Ok for Mechanica...
When I launch Inventor (sp1) :
"Un produit Autodesk n'a pas pu envoyer la valeur nécessaire pour SERIALNUM."
And then I have a CER.
Win 7 x64 (FRENCH), PDSU French.
Any solution ?
I too am having this issue on a xp x64 workstation,
I have sent error reports in, i have tried everything listed on other posts and SP1 have tried re-installations to no avail.
from what i can guess it has to do with the inventor authentication and may be a problem with flexnet thou no errors have been logged in the eventlog
I too am having the same issue except on a 64bit Windows7 system.
I have tried to uninstall/reinstall, including cleaning up the registry.
I have installed with Antivirus and UAC disabled.
Any helpwould be appreciated.
Same issue here.
XP SP3 32 bit. Recent install, but wasn't a complete format.
Installed Autodesk Suite 2012. Every package works flawlessly except Inventor which displays the error shown above.
Unusually I did not have C:\Docs...\All Users\ directory on the machine as suggested above.
I have tried the suggested fixes from all the other threads on this forum and none work with 5 or so uninstalls and reinstalls today.
The suggested overall fix cannot seriously be a complete reinstall of XP? I mean really come on! No other program on my machine has this error (I've never seen this type of unresolvable error before), all the other programs in the same software suite work perfectly, there MUST be a solution rather than losing another working day reinstalling XP, updating, configuring network and installing all the necessary software.
I reported one instance of the crash and had a reply from Autodesk within half an hour. I replied with more info and not a peep since. I guess the failure instance isn't high enough to warrant a proper fix, just telling people to completely reinstall their OS which for a several thousand pound software package is utterly ludicrous.
I am very sorry for any inconvenience we caused. We are still trying to find the cause of the issue.
Could you please send the ProductInformation.pit file from your machine to me?
Normally that file is installed under below folder (which is a hidden folder need you enable to show hidden files and folders from Folder Options firstly to find it)
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\AdLM
It's intresting that you have no C:\Documents and Settings\All Users folder, if so please serach the ProductInformation.pit file from your machine and send to me.
My email address is: HelenDOTChenATAutodeskDOTCom
Thank you very much for your patient and support!
I have had a reply from Simon who I have forwarded the file you have requsted to.
OK, I got it. Thank you very much for your feedback.
I will contact Simon offline to get the file to have a check.
Oh brilliant. Now after all the faffing around with it yesterday now none of the other packages work. All I get is "Softlock licence manager" error and nothing works...
