I installed inventor 2014 on my laptop with windows 8.1, and export to DWG does not work. When i go to export, the options button doesnt work. when i click save, it pops up a windows and says "Problems encountered while saving the document." On my desktop with 2014 it works perfectly. I have the newest sp1. Does anybody know how to fix this and make this actually work.

Hi,

 

Would you mind trying the following step and see if this fixes your issue?

1) Press [Windows] key to open the Windows' start page

2) Type "cmd" to find "Command Prompt" > right mouse click on it

  > select "Run as administrator"

3) On "Administrator: Command Proompt" window, type

  cd "c:\program files\autodesk\Inventor 2014\bin"

then

   inventor /install

4) Wait for 1 min (inventor will be executed background then exit silently)

 

Hope this helps,

The fix is to wait for Autodesk to release an update..

Timeframe = unknown

Don't know what that did but it works down with cut and paste and inserting autocad drawing

Just wanted to add: this issue is not only for Windows 8.1 .  We have also seen this with Windows 7 and the same solution applies.

Fixed my problem of importing dwg files into inventor.  Now I can see them.  But the 2d to 3d converter is not recognizing the file.  At least one more step on the road.
