Re: older (iv10) drawing set open in 2013

Scott,

 

I have upgraded to the new inventor because my older computer is not working anymore,

and with windows 7 the older inventor release 10 (2006), is not working on the new computer.

 

I do not have any problems with new AutoCad, so far.

 

What I do not understand is, I can print the pages, I can view the pages in Autodesk design review, but I can not save the drawings, with all pages, in Autodesk or convert them to dwg.

 

Why do I have install the old version of inventor (which will be a problem, because my computer is updated, +86 processor, and windows 7).

 

Do you have any more suggestion?

 

Thank you for your patient.

Regards

elke h.

Elke,

I am going to guess that your old machine was 32 bit and the new one is 64 bit.

That makes them very uncompatible unfortunately.

What I would suggest at this point is contact your VAR and see if they can offer you

some suggestions on how to convert these to the updated version.

I am still miffed like you that these callup blank even though there are several versions

between them.

Best Regards,

I'm wondering where the OP got the software.  If they bought it from a VAR, they should have been warned about this situation and what to do.

My old computer was windows XP.

I received some information how to change the screen appearance, and now I can see the model panel that shows all the pages and details . For now I am ok, I do not have time to check all the other parts and drawings jet.

 

Thank you'all

Somewhere in Autodesk data, they don't recommend migrating more than 3 releases apart. As long as you have copies of the data, I would try running the Task Scheduler and try migrating just the IPT files the first run, then the IAM files the second run, any Presentation files and on the last run all the IDW's.

 

Part of the problem when opening a old IDW file is that it must migrate all the files that make up the IDW.

 

If you can contact your VAR they might have an old copy of Inventor that is about  1/2 way between your version and on the current version. You can run this as a 30 day demo to get your files migrated part way.
