Hello,

 

I tried to install the English version of Inventor Publisher a few days ago, which got me an error 1638. And now I try to install Inventor Publisher 2011 in German -> same error.

 

What to do now?

 

I Already tried to uninstall, clean up registry, delete all Program Files and Documents and Settings directories created by Inventor Publisher setup.

 

Here is the log file:

My colleague fixed the problem:

 

Uninstall Java and then reinstall Inventor Publisher -> no more errors!  :smileyhappy:

I'm glad *you* found the solution -- not sure how long it would have taken *us* to figure that out!

Can you please send us the following files, if they exist?

 

%temp%\Autodesk Inventor Publisher 2011 R1.log

%temp%\Autodesk Inventor Publisher 2011 R1 Beta.log

%temp%\Autodesk Inventor Publisher 2011.log

 

"%temp%" varies from machine to machine.  You can start a "cmd" window, and type "cd %temp%" to find out where it is on your machine.
