Hi Mike,

 

This isn't going to be much help but I wanted to let you know that we looked into this and received the following response (taken from the Readme file of the bonus tools).

 

“While Autodesk, Inc. has made reasonable efforts to verify and test the sample files ("Sample Files") and tools, including wizards (collectively "Tools") provided in this SDK, the SDK is provided solely on an "as is" basis, "with all faults". The SDK, the sample files and tools contained are employed at the sole risk of the user.

Again I know that's not what you wanted to hear, but I'm hoping that we can get additional community involvement on this thread to discover a potential workaround.

i understand...

but autodesk must know a way to reset the change made buy this application , no?

 

but now i must find a way to undo the damage

 

i don't really want to do it but if i uninstall inventor and reinstall it, will that restore my color

 

if i would have know it will cost me that much trouble just to change the color of some line

let me tell you that i wouldnt done it

 

and why do we need an outside application to change what color that type of line use etc....

Did you do a backup of the entire registry?

 

Is it possible that you didn't have write access to a portion of the registry when you tried to restore the registry? Where you using an administrator account?

Peace,

yes i did a backup as and how they suggest it when opening the read me file with the color scheme editor...

and for the adminstrator part... inventor is install on my computer, i dont have server or limitation since i work alone..

but if you need to set some thing up to have the possibility to rewrite the registry, then i'm not sure i was autorize to write access

 

whats weird is when i reopen the color scheme editor everything seem fine, the color show for each scheme seems ok..

and when i open a part file, check the attachements to see what i see

Hmm,

 

Thant could be caused by Inventor using the wrong background picture?

 

This post explains the steps to change it...
