Understanding Project and where to save files.

Hi there, I am using Autodesk Inventor 2013 for the first time. I've installed it but I have no template files when I want to start a new file. I think I may have set up th wrong file locations, "C:\Users\Public1Documents\Autodesk\Inventor2013\Templates\Standards.idw was not found" it the message I keep getting. 

 

Where and how should I setup my files, projects and meanings behind what they mean. I am completly lost I think it may be a good idea to start fresh.

 

Please can someone help.

If you did the default install the path to the templates would be: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2013\Templates (assuming this is Windows 7).

 

Did you manually edit the path to the template files?

Are you using the Default project file?

 

Can you post a screen shot ot what you see when you try to start a new file?

Sorry, my mistake. There is no number 1 in the file name.

Thanks you very much for these links, they went some way to improving my understanding. I have since uninstalled AutoDesk Inventor 2013, but will try install it to see if the template files appear on start uo. Will keep you informed.
