Hi, it is stupid to find out that you have to have execl to run inventor. I tried to work with office analog free software, http://www.software602.com/ but it unfortunately didn't work.

How did you know you needed Windows and not
Unix?  Win NT and not Win 3.1?

If it makes you feel any better IV is not the only 3D CAD program that requires Excel as stated earlier in this thread.

Not having Excel doesn't render IV useless, just a couple of features won't run. Autodesk doesn't hide it either.

You are quite right. A-Desk could easily license the core of MS Excell. At what cost and liability? Couldn't begin to guess.
