Task Scheduler "unresolved references" error message

902 Views, 6 Replies

I am looking to batch convert my IDWs to AutoCad DWGs without having to go through and manually open each file and save as etc.  Right now I am using the export files task to do this.  I have saved an *.ini file with all the settings I want and successfully create the task.  After running the task it fails to convert all the files giving me an error message that says "File has unresolved references".  This shouldn't be the case though because the IDW's open and reference the part/assembly files fine.  Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

 

Autodesk Inventor Professional 2010 32bit edition SP3

 

Thanks for the help.

The error "File has unresolved references" will appear when an assembly file can’t resolve components referenced in it. By default, task scheduler will skip these files. You can force task scheduler to migrate these files by using the options in the attached screenshot.

We may be running different versions, or maybe I'm confused about where you got that options box.  If I click on options in the Export files dialog box all I see is "export files options" which only chooses the *.ini file.  See the attached screenshot.  Am I looking in the wrong place?

 

Thanks

I did find what you were refering to in the "update design" task.  I'm still a little confused though.  Am I supposed to run a task that updates the design of all the files and then run a separate task that converts idw to dwg?

Sorry for the confusion with the screenshot. Exactly, Since you have some unresolved references, Update your drawings with the same settings i have shown and then convert them to DWG. This might help to fix your problem.

Why does Task Scheduler (Design update & Export files) not support Vault projects ?

Its really wierd that you can open a file in Inventor and print/export it but when using Task Scheduler you cant due to "unresolved references". To use update you need to have the files checked out aswell if your using Vault. Why is it like this?!
