This morning I went to lauch AutoDesk Inventor 2010 and without starting, an Error Report appeared.


The Report Details were as follows:


Error Signature:


Application: Autodesk Inventor    Version: 140284400 AIS     Error: Unhandled Exception


Reporting Details


This error report includes the following:

* Operating System name and version

* Product name and version

* Graphics configuration driver name and version

* Applications that were loaded when the error occurred

* Active command when the error occurred

* Computer name (if enabled via the Deployment Wizard or the CAD Manager Control utility)


This has not happened before.  I shut down my computer last night and this is what happened today.  It appears to be completly random.


I am running it on Windows 7 64 bit.


I have searched the forum and have not found an answer to this.


Any help is appreciated.  I am waiting for a phone call from tech support, but any help in the mean time is appreciated.

I taked with someone from technical support and they told me that thier can sometimes be a glitch in the registry.



Solution: (Ensure to make backup of the deleted files-just incase)


C:\ - Users - Choose your login - AppData -


In this folder thier will be 3 other folders:





Click Local - Autodesk

In here I deleted the Inventor 2010 folder


I went back to AppData folded and followed the same procedure for the Roaming folder.


Ensure to back up these folders before deleting.


I lunched Inventor 2010 from the desktop shortcut, a warming pops up asking to reregister files, click YES.


Everything fixed.  The folders I deleted were recreated and Inventor works fine.


The support didn't have a great explanation of why this happens, just that files become corrupt and prevent start up.


I hope this helps anyone in the future who may run into this issue.


Take care
