missing projects in project editor

143 Views, 8 Replies

I downloaded Inventor 2014. My O/S is Windows 7 Ultimate. In the projects folder there is supposed to be Projects called iLogic 2011 Samples, iLogic 2011 Tutorials, iLogic 2012 Samples, Railing iLogic Sample Advanced, and Railing iLogic Sample Base. None of these PROJECTS show up in my projects editor. Do I have to completely uninstall and reinstall Inventor 2014 to get these projects to hopefully load?

Where are you getting this information?  Are you expecting these projects to be installed with 2014?
Are they project you had with a previous install?  If so, what if you go to Projects and Browse to their locations?

 

I have no idea how an uninstall/reinstall would be related to this issue.

More information is needed.

I assumed these projects were supposed to be included with the initial download. The rerason i thought this is in the tutorials, in the section, Examine a project it shows all of these projects listed in the project editor. Also, a number of the tutorials start with setting the project to one of these projects to access the proper files. I looked for instructions on how to get these projects installed, but was unable to find any. Do I have to manually install these projects from another source or are they something I have to create? Sorry for sounding ignorant, but I am just confused about this. I just started trying to learn Inventor 2014 and I am at a loss. Any information you can give me or a direction in which to proceed will be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Just one other thing. It says in the Examine a project tutorial and I quote "When you install Autodesk Inventor, it creates a DEFAULT project, an iLogic SAMPLES project, and a tutorial_files project automatically".

It sounds like you are referring to 2011 Tutorials, when of course you should be referring to 2014 Tutorials.

This is in the Inventor 2014 tutorials in the WiKi help at the very beginning.

OK, after searching for myself - I found the exact page I was asking you to reference - here is the url I was asking you to post

http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/Inventor/enu/2014/Help/0082-Tutorial82/0083-Inventor83/0101-Projects101...

 

That screen capture is from old release. At the very very beginning did you download and install the 2014 Tutorial files (following the instructions) http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/index?siteID=123112&id=21952055

 

As you continue working through the Tutorials - it would be helpful for you to supply exact url and screen capture images when appropriate along with your questions.

 

These files used to be included with the install in earlier releases and are now a separate download as indicated at the beginning of the Tutorials.

The projects will not show up automatically - you will have to Browse to them.

Might not be the same as earlier releases.

Exactly which Project are you trying to use?
