Cannot create new file - Inventor 2013

I have Inventor Professional 2013 (student). I can't open new file, if I try to the program crashes and closes and try to send an error report. Can't install update/patch (DL20857064_32-bit.msp or inventor2013_sp1.1_x86.msp), says program not installed/or can't gain acces to the HKey. I have admin rights, I have tried re-activating, repairing, re-installing, uninstalling and reinstalling, to the point i had to request a new activation code but it's still not working.


I have attached a file with error messages and my system, which should be ok according to the system requirements.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hi, have you tried doing a install repair ? Failing that an re-install might be the way ahead.

What Windows Operating System are you running (it would likely  be a very old computer to be running 32-bit (x86) OS).
