Impression 3 Installation problem

1568 Views, 5 Replies

I have downloaded and installed Impression 3 on my 64-bit Windows 7 computer. The program opens normally, but it will not let me import a file, work on it, and save it. The program crashes each time. What's wrong?

 

Twice I have been able to import a dwg file. Once I was able to work on a simple project, but not able to save ever.

The hotfix seems to have done it. However, the Api folder was under Autodesk, not Autodesk Impression 3. Is that a problem?

 

I still am not able to "Install Dataset" when doing the tutorial exercises for Impression 3. Is this because I am using the tutorial for Impression 2? Or is there a fix for this, too? .... Or can someone just email those files over so I can use them?

 

Thanks.

I have the same problem of being unable to import a dwg into Impression, or getting a successful import but then not being able to save the drawing.

 

I installed the Windows 7 hotfix, with NO success.  I still have the problem.

 

I am running Autocad Architecture 2011 on Windows 7 64 bit.  Any ideas?

After the installing the hot fix, convert your drawings down to 2010 or later  They should import correctly.
