when i try to open my 2011 inventor program which ive been running for months now i get an error message. and the program refuses to open. "Error in Inventor Undo Folder: Please Make Correction" any ways to fix this so i can get back to work. and i should add that i am not a computer genius im a furniture designer. please help me out here

I recently found that if your C: drive (Where ever your Inventor Installation is) is out of memory

then you experience that problem. Hope that helps

Let's start with your system specifications See this for what is needed:

Something else to check (if you can get this far. Open Inventor, go to tools >> Application Options without opening a file:

 

What do you see here under the general tab?

I did a search in the source code for Inventor. You should see a dialog, not just a Message box.

The Dialog should give additional information to fix the problem:

 

Current Undo Folder:

Undo Folder Status:

 

In order to help you with this issue, it would be best if you could post a screenshot of this dialog here.

 

regards,

Gerald

Yes Dash1982,

 

I agree with this question, can you post the solution because I got the same error on a fresh installation of AutoCADInventor and I have  no idea how to solve this problem. I'd like to prevent that our users get this message

 

 

Error AutoCADInventor.jpg

 

If possible I would like to change the path to a location where All Users have acces (for instance d:\Undo) but where can I configure this setting?   

 

 

 

Best regards,

I am having this problem in our school district.  I believe it is related to roaming profiles.  I would like to know how to set the path for the undo folder to a place everyone will have access to.  Can anyone help?
