I have the same problem, have not seen or heard from other users in the company as I work on-site, but as stated it happens when I start IV first time in the morning or have to quit for some reason and restart it.
Inventor 2011 Pro
Windows 7 64bit
4 Gig Ram
500 mB Nvidia
All have Power User rights or better
1 session of IV is running at a time. It usually happens when you close down IV, come back and start it and the IPJ reverts back to the Default.ipj
I'm talking to others I know up in Michigan who are seeing this as well, but aren't on the IV boards.
This sounds like Inventor is unable to find the selected and stored ipj, so it's reverting to the Default. I'd look at where and how the IPJ .lnk files are being stored and used.
I'm still unable to duplicate this issue on my systems or customer systems. I've tested on WinXP-32, WinXP-64, Win7-64 and Vista-32.
How many of you are storing the IPJ files on a server or different computer?
We are a small group doing site as-built working, using Inventor to model as we go along. We have created a local Vault, running on my pc, linked through a local hub. All three IV installations are doing the same thing.
1. We set the working folder (through Vault) as C:\Working Folder\[Project number/name]
2. All pc's are running on Windows 7 64 bit, 4 Gig Ram, 256 Mb Nvidia cards, IV 2011 Professional
3. Our ipj files does not disappear, all that happens is that the project defaults to the "Default" project when you restart IV - you do not need to reboot the machine.
4. Vault operates correctly, all the machines can access it, check in, check out, etc. without a problem.
Hope this sheds more light on the problem.
This is only on the Windows 7/64 bit pc's ....
We continue to experience the same issue. As mentioned by others, the project defaults to the "Default" project when IV is restarted or when the computer is restarted. For us, it's not consistent - it seems random, although frequent. I suppose we'll have to get into the habit of setting our project file before we start working.
Also, for us, this only happens on Windows 7 64 bit machines. We have not changed our setup in any way from previous installations. It just started to happen to each user as we gradually upgraded our machines.
Exactly, it's completely random. This morning 2 out of 4 pc's in the room reverted back to the default IPJ.
Curious if this is just a W7/64 bit issue
I'm not saying that they dissapear completely. However, they may appear "gone" to Inventor, if the network card is in a "sleep" mode. As I've been unable to duplicate this issue, I'm having to grasp at straws, looking outside the box. It might be an area to investigate
Our project file on each of our machines is located on the local hard drive: C:\1_Vault_Local\Engineer.ipj. Windows 7 64. Vault is on it's own dedicated server. Inventor 2011 will at times revert back to the default project file, random.
We are experiencing this problem as well. Also, possibly related, our application options are randomly changed or reset. One user experiences a daily reset of his application options. Our project is local and a shared Vault project. C:/Work/Designs/
