Hi!

Now i have more problems with word.
After Publisher crashed the word publisher tab is gone inside word.
i tried to activate the Word add-in, but it just say "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor Publisher 2013\Autodesk.Catalyst.Novastar.PlugIns.WordAddin2013.dll is not a valid office addin".
I have done this procedure before. but now it dosen´t work!
so now i cant update my word file.

Is it possible to download the word-addin?

 

Thanks in advance.
Timmy

Hello Timmy,

 

Please try my workflow.

1, go to control panel > installed features, uninstall word addin

2, go to the Publisher folder, for example: C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor Publisher 2013\ and find the file "Autodesk.Catalyst.Novastar.PlugIns.WordAddin2013.vsto", double click it. It will install the word addin.

see my attached imaged for your reference

 

if you fail to install word addin in the second step, the only method is to uninstall publisher and reinstall it, the word addin will be installed again automatically

On Win 7, Open Control Panel, open  Programs \ Programs and Features, click View Installed Updates, you will see SP2 , uninstall it.

On Windows XP, Open Control Panel, open Add or Remove Programs, click Show Updates, find SP2, uninstall it.

Hi,

 

After updating to SP3, everytime i click "Link" or "Browse" in the Inventor Publisher Word Add-in, it crashes my word document. A browsing window appears before the word document will show an error and stop working. It occurs solely when i click these buttons. Thanks for any help regard this issue.

Double clicking "Autodesk.Catalyst.Novastar.PlugIns.WordAddin2013R1" gives me this:

 

word publisher error.png

 

This is the second time in less than two weeks. The first time it happened, I un-installed, re-installed Publisher and it was ok. If Publisher wasn't so slow and unstable, I might have time to spare to un-install/ re-install every week but I don't. I am running Office 2010.

 

Please advise.

Ok - worked it out:

 

  1. Goto C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0
  2. Delete all contents (it contains simliar entries to what you'd find in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor Publisher 2013 R1)
  3. Goto C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor Publisher 2013 R1
  4. Find Autodesk.Catalyst.Novastar.PlugIns.WordAddin2013R1 and double click it

You should get this:

Restart Word 2010 :smileyvery-happy:

 

Let's see how long it lasts!
