Stuck at login screen

I am stuck at the welcome screen, where i need to log in. Webbrowser won't open, reinstall doesn't help. Any ideas?

Message 2 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 @Is this on windows or Mac?

Based on the minimize/maximize buttons in the top right, it looks like Windows. Or does it look the same on Mac and not the standard red/yellow/green?


Edit: Yes, I just verified, on a Mac the Fusion 360 login screen has the standard red/yellow/green in the upper left.

Solutions didn't work for me.

Tried to run it without admin rights, clear cache of my webbrowser and changed standard browser to edge.

I couldn't test the last option because I don't have an identity manager running

Message 7 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 Ok. The admin was the one that I really wanted to see. There re a couple more things and this should get it done. 

1. go to Add/remove programs under the windows settings and check whether the WebView 2 is already installed. If not, then visit the Microsoft page to download it from You should use the Evergreen Standalone Installer to resolve the issue.

2. If this does not resolve the issue - this should certainly be the one that addresses it -

I already have webview 2 installed and the identity manager didn't help.
Message 9 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 Hmmm. Ok. Will have to look at your log files. I was really thinking the identity manager will do this. 

So just to take any assumptions away:

1. You launch Fusion 360
2. When you click on sign in - No browser launches, right? 

Log Files - While launching Fusion 360 if you click on Ctrl+Shift, this will launch the Fusion 360 service utility. In there can you please gather log files and attach the diagnostic here please?

1. Run as administrator did not work
2. WinView2 is already installed
3. installing the new version of Autodesk Identity manager did not work 
4. Can you update the AdSSo component too please -

The logs also will help see what is happening.

Updated the AdSSo component, didn't help.

Logs attached.

Message 11 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 See this in the logs:

ERROR] Failed to launch SSO process C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AdskIdentityManager\

1. Taks manager - close Any Fusion .exe and if there is any Autodesk Identity manager.exe
2. Restart machine
3. Go to this location 
4.  C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AdskIdentityManager\
5. Run the exe
6. Launch Fusion 360
7. Click on sign in 

Now does it open up a browser?

Running the .exe end with an error.

It tells me, it could not find the AdskIdentityManager.exe

Message 13 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 Our apologies and thank you for trying out all of this. I have passed on the logs to our engineering team. While they take a deeper look at it, here is may be a way to get this moving forward. 

1. Go to
2. Pick a design and use the "open in desktop" 

Does this launch the application?

Alright, thanks for your help so far.


"open in desktop" launches Fusion360, but still ends at the login screen.

Message 15 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 One quick look and the ask is to uninstall and reinstall WebView 2. Can you please try this one?

Message 16 of 41

Didn't solve the problem.

Message 17 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 One of our engineers is suggesting the below to check for why the identity manager.exe is not running. 

  1. Open properties of AdskIdentityManager.exe , in C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AdskIdentityManager\ and see if it is blocked from running.
  2. See if User Account Control could be set to Never notify , and reinstall AdskIdentityManager just to test?
Also, is there any anti-virus programs running?

1. I can't start the .exe, but I don't see any option that blocks the start either.

2. It is set to never notify


Message 19 of 41

@eparcoDJYB4 @Which time zone are you in and would you be open to a zoom call? There is certainly some setting that we are not looking into that is not letting that exe run. Either a firewall or an anti-virus setting or some other windows setting on permission. 

Are you able to run that exe as an admin? Right click on it and run as admin? 

also to eliminate some of the other settings what happens if you create a quick new profile and install Fusion?
