Unsupported Browser Error

When I try to open Fusion 360 on my windows computer it says I'm using an unsupported browser. I've tried two of the supported browsers, and a clean install from a supported browser but still no luck. How do I fix this?

Hi @hehlaA3NXB . Sorry you have any issue. 

 

What browsers have you tried? When you try to access Fusion Online, where are you at? Are you on your own personal/home wifi or are you using school wifi?

I've tried Firefox and chrome. Both on school WiFi at the University of Wisconsin Platteville.

OK, thank you. Do you have the ability to connect to your smartphone on that computer and then try it again? 

 

There are ports that need to be opened up on the schools WiFi network. If you can connect to a different WiFi network like your cell phone, that would probably rule out pretty quickly if proxy settings of the school WiFi are the problem, or if there is an issue with your browser. 

 

Do you have the ability to try that for me? There is a document that I can also provide that will tell your school IT people what ports need to be open and what sites need to be able to be contacted.

Maybe check the ports are open and test Ping the domains listed:

I don't have the ability to connect to my phone. Can I test this theory by just using any WiFi network that isn't the school's?

Hi @hehlaA3NXB 

Can you confirm that you tried my suggestions or using Fusion Online on a different  network, or both?

Thanks,

I haven't been able to try it yet. My phone plan doesn't allow me to use it as a mobile hotspot and I'm on campus for another 2.5 hours. I'll let you know when I try it.

Hi @hehlaA3NXB 

Thanks for the update. Are you running Fusion on a Chromebook, Windows or Mac?

 

A few more things to try.

  1. If you’re running a Virus software, temporarily disable it and try running Fuion online.
  2. Ensure all operating system updates are installed on your computer.
  3. Shutdown and Restart your computer.
  4. Ensure you have Admin rights to run the browser; right-click on the Chrome shortcut on your desktop, and click run as Administrator.
  5. Can you log into Fusion Team (where your Fusion data is stored) at https://login.autodesk360.com (same credentials you log into Fusion with).
  6. Try running Fusion online from a different computer. This will tell us if the issue is within your computer.

Keep us posted.

I'm running windows 10 on a lenovo yoga. I've tried steps 1 through 5 with no luck at all. I had a different error than usual on step 5 though.

Hi @hehlaA3NXB 

Thanks  for trying the steps. A few more questions?

  1. Were you ever able to log into Fusion 360?
  2. Since you have a Windows computer, have you tried installing Fusion 360 locally?
  3. When you log into www.autodesk.com/eligibility please validate that you see that your Autodesk Education Plan has an end date in the future?

  4. Have you run through the steps in this document: Fusion 360 - student and educator install and eligibility process  (after confirming your eligibility, you must acquire a Fusion 360 education license).
    1. Log into the Autodesk Education site and if needed verify your eligibility.
    2. To get or renew your Fusion 360 license; on the Fusion 360 product card click "Get product".
    3.

  1. Then click "ACCESS"

danbanach_3-1669121836595.png

 

  1. Launch Fusion 360.
  2. If the Education license does not appear on the top of the screen, sign out and back into Fusion 360.
  3.  

Keep us posted

I've never been able to log into fusion 360. I can put my information in, but then it comes up with the unsupported browser error. Even with the program installed locally. I was very confused when it showed me an unsupported browser message while I was trying to launch a local program. The end date for my education license is November 8th, 2023. I followed all the steps laid out in the document, but when I get to step 4 I have a browser error message instead of the welcome message. I have HSM-works running on the same computer and autodesk account with no issues other than the known bugs.

Hi @hehlaA3NXB 

Thanks for the update. I submitted a request for the team to look at your account, and see if there are any issues. 

 

One more idea. Can you try to acquire a Fusion 360 license from your phone (follow the steps above) and let me know if you have success?

Thanks for your patience as we figure out this issue.

Hi @hehlaA3NXB 

We've confirmed that you have a valid Fusion 360 subscription. There may be a setting on your computer that is preventing Fusion from running.

 

Can you try to run Fusion 360 from a different computer? 

Keep us posted.

Hi @hehlaA3NXB 

The Use Account Control settings may also stopping Fusion 360 from running. Here are a couple articles. That may help.

Keep us posted.
