I am using Inventor Pro 2014 on Windows 8.1 and when I insert or import a DWG file from AutoCAD into Inventor to extrude it into a solid, nothing shows up. Apparently a wizard is supposed to pop up but when I try it nothing at all happens. I have tried reinstalling it but nothing seems to work. Has anyone else had this issue? I think importing a DWG into a 2D sketch is a fairly basic thing to do but I'm baffled that it isn't working. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have SP1 already installed.
Have you done this in previous releases?
Are you familiar with the procedure?
(are you selection Options and setting to Import?)
Thanks for the response. Yes when I choose "Open" and pick "Import" from the options button nothing appears. The same is true when I make a 2D sketch and choose "ACAD" from the insert box. Unless there's something key that I'm mising I really don't know why there isn't even an error prompt if something really isn't working.
Attach dwg file here.
I cannot attach the DWG I actually intend to use, but any DWG/DXF exhibits the problem. I have attached a simple such DWG (containg just a circle and a square) that exhibits the problem.
Furthermore, I have tried opening the DWG/DXF in Inventor (successfully), then copying the objects (select, right-click, copy) and pasting (activate sketch, right-click, paste) them into an IPT sketch. Again, nothing happens.
*Exactly* the same problem here... Inventor LT 2014 X64 Trial & SP1 on Win 8.1 - and so, alas, my trial period expired before I was able to verify DWG import which is very important for our intended application.

Alas, no - so I deinstalled the Inventor trial and bought Rhino instead.
