Inventor Studio vs Excel

280 Views, 5 Replies
07-06-2012 02:05 PM

When using Inventor 2013 (Premium), and I switch to Inventor Studio, I get a well hidden message box (switch to desktop, then select the Inventor program on the task bar, to see this message).  In the message it states that the Excel file is not of the expected format.  Natually, its hanging on an Excel message from the hidden excel running in the background. Upon further research I find that this is an Excel program message box, and I can't find a way to prevent it from raising this box.

 

I don't think Autodesk payed much attention to the Office 2010 suite as it relates to the Inventor Studio. 

 

Does anybody have a clue of what to do here?

What is the file extension? Is it .xls or .xlsx?

 

And what is the file.

 

On Office 2010 here for quite some time and do a lot in Inventor Studio. Haven't had a problem here or on my machine at my office at home.

The file is .xls.  I didn't have this problem until this computer's rebuild (new ssd).

Have you run Excel at least once sense the rebuild?

Sometimes you just need a good old reboot.
