I am experiencing horrendously slow performance in my Inventor 2012. What I am working on is by no means complex however basic functions like placing constraints just freeze the whole thing up
Yes I have all the latest service packs installed, drivers, hot fixes etc. etc. and I am running a high spec machine.
Anyone can tell me what on earth is wrong with Inventor ?

While you might indeed have a "high spec" machine, it might be bogged down by an onboard graphics card...
But without knowing, who can tell?
My machine spec :
HPZ400 Xeon 3.07GHz
ATI FirePro V4800 graphics card
My graphics card has been recently upgraded by out IT company.
Are you using a 3DConnexion device?
If so, click Calibrate on the 3DConnexion Control Panel.
Check to make sure you're not using software graphics.
Application Options > Hardware
Ever since I installed my 3dconnexion device, this box gets checked every so often. It's a little annoying but I can live with a couple of quirks, I guess.
You followed all the installation pre-requisites?
1.) Administrative Privileges
2.) UAC turned off, slider to lowest settings
3.) Anti-Virus software disabled
Not sure what you mean by 'after the new video card', this video card is the one I've always had when I got my CAD station.
I so have a 3D Connexion devive which is configured for Inventor, I didn't know what this would affect Inventor though.
Thanks, as far as I know our IT company have made some routine updates via the internet to the video card that came with the machine, I would have thought this would improve performance not the other way round ?
