Everytime I try to use the frame analysis tool I get a strange error.
In the attachments you can see my frame. I Have put fixed constraints to the lowest (ground) points.
I defined my loads and when I press simulate an error pops up saying:
Failed to get results.
This is displayed in attachment 2. I'd like to know what causes this problem, maybe I build my frame wrong or i forgot to specify something?
Does this happen on your machine for any Frame Analysis solve, or just for this particular model?
i.e. can you generate results for a single beam with a simple profile (such as rectangular or circular) with just a fixed constraint and gravity?
If the solve failure is just for this particular model, could you post up the assembly so we can take a closer look?
We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.

By the way, which version of Inventor are you using?
We had a similar issue back in the R2011 timeframe, but the error was "Failed to connect solver." Which was discussed here: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Inventor/fa
I suspect that something didn't register correctly during the installation process. Would you be able to try an uninstall / re-install to see if it cures the issue? It is very important to install using Administrative privileges, turn off UAC, and disable any firewalls and anti-virus before and during the installation.
Another possibility is that your anti-virus or firewall is prohibiting some action of the solver. Perhaps you can try disabling these if present, re-start Inventor and try solving again?
Please let us know the outcome.
Best regards, -Hugh
I'm currently using Autodesk Inventor 2012. I'm not really shure about the version. I tried shutting my firewall off with no result. I'll try to reistal the software as soon as possible. I'll keep you update about the result.
Thanks in advance.
