opened the DerivedPart_SP folder
ran Install.bat as administrator
--The cmd opened, displayed a lot of text, then disapeared
Opened Inventor

Did you turn off UAC for the install?

I doubt Windows will allow a bat to run with UAC on.

I should have asked this at the beginning.  You alread had what you needed.

 

FYI - I had not installed the DeriveComponent_SP on this machine.

I tried without turning off UAC.  It didn't work.

I turned off UAC and rebooted.

Ran the bat again.

Rebooted the computer and started Inventor.

Checked the add-ins and there it was.

 

But since you have Inventor Professional and don't need this.

 

Open your part file.

Go to the Environments tab and click
Mold Design

Okay, I created a new Mold Design. Where do I go to scale the object then save it back to an .ipt?

See images.

Pay attention to where the file is being saved (there will be a whole bunch of files created - but you only need the one.

Part Shrinkage.pngAfter scaling the part you might want to right click on the Derived Component node in the browser and Suppress Link with Base Component.

Got curious so I ran the msi and derive & s/p bat. I get the below error when starting IV.

Not sure what the problem is but I was able to create a keyboard shortcut in tools>option>customize to launch the app.

I also get this error when closing IV
