Empty Content Library

Hello all,
I have successfully installed Inventor 2011, but it seems that all the Inventor Desktop Content libraries are blank.

I have looked in:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\Inventor 2011\Content Center\Libraries\

C:\Users\davorb\Documents\Inventor\Content Center Files\R2011


Also, the install is from a deployment (in case that matters)


but these folders are blank.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you in advance,

go to Tools tab > Application Options > Content Center tab and look at the path listed there.

does that match those you listed?



Are you installing the Desktop CC file of the ADMS version?

What OS is this on?


Have you checked your Project file to ensure it is configured to use the libraries?


Also are you just trying to get them on the machine, or are you wanting to fix the deployment image for future.

Thanks for replying.

I realized that it was not enough to create the deployment and install. I had to then run setup from DVD one and manually select to install the content center on my computer.

Now, I can go back, and modify the deployment to include these from the C: drive.
