Recently bought a version of Inventor 2010 SUITE, and tried to use a OS Windows 7 Home Basic, I could not run. Is there any way to run it on this system.

Here are the requirements:

 

For Windows Users

For General Part and Assembly Design (Typically Fewer than 1,000 Parts)

  • Microsoft® Windows 7 (32-bit or 64-bit) Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate/Enterprise, or Microsoft® Windows Vista® (SP2) (32-bit or 64-bit) Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate, or Microsoft® Windows XP Professional (SP3) or Professional x64 Edition (SP2) (1,2)
  • Intel® Pentium® 4, 2 GHz or faster, Intel® Xeon®, Intel® Core™, AMD Athlon™ 64, or AMD Opteron™, or later (3)
  • 2 GB RAM or more (4)
  • Microsoft® Direct3D 10® or Direct3D 9® capable graphics card (5)
  • DVD-ROM drive (6)
  • Microsoft® Mouse-compliant pointing device
  • 1280 x 1024 or higher screen resolution
  • Internet connection for web downloads and Subscription Aware access
  • Adobe Flash Player 10 (7)
  • Microsoft® Internet Explorer® 6.x through 8
  • Microsoft® Excel 2003 through 2007 for iComponents, thread customization, and spreadsheet-driven designs

For Complex Models, Complex Mold Assemblies, and Large Assemblies (Typically More than 1,000 Parts)

  • Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit (SP2), or Windows XP Professional x64 Edition (SP2)
  • AMD64 or Intel® 64 processor
  • 6 GB RAM or more
  • CAD workstation-class graphics card

 

You can always upgrade your home system:

They are specific programs, one for 32 bit O/S and one for 64 bit O/S. You should have received both versions in your DVD pack, or you will need to download the 64 bit version from Autodesk.

 

Same serial numbers for either version.

If they can't read the system requirements for the software they are purchasing, do you really think they would read the first post on this forum.

Dear Blair,

 

Tanks a Lot,

 

But I have a new question: I receive a new OS, the Windows 7 Home premium 64 bits. I try install begin, and appear a new message: "you cannot install this product on the current operating system"

 

OBS.: I have a 64 bits system, but I'm trying to install an Autodesk Inventor 2010 32bits.

 

Best regards,

 

Bardella

Install Inventor on Windows 7 Home Basic

I have installed Autodesk Inventor 2013 on my laptop. But when I try to open a new file, it takes me to My Documents. It does not show the list of templates seen on the initial screen.

You will need to configure/create a proper "Projects" file. A good read is available from the Autodesk Wiki Help for Inventor: http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Inventor/enu/2013/Help/1310-Autodesk1310/1892-Collabor1892/1918-Design_...
