Installation of Inventor Standalone and Inventor Network on the Same Machine

Based on a conversation with my CAD vendor this afternoon I was told that what I am trying to do is not possible with the current Autodesk product. I have little confidence in what he has told me, so I am asking here.

We currently have multiple standalone Autodesk Inventor Suite products. We also have 1 network Inventor Simulation. Our original idea was to have this Simulation license available to float around the group, based on whoever wanted to do stress analysis at that time.

Is this possible?


thanks,
Adam

I think you can confirm for yourself if this will work or not.
Use REGEDIT.EXE and take a look.
For AutoCAD products it is as this example:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R17.1\ACAD-6001:409
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R17.1\ACAD-6004:409

6001 indicates AutoCAD 2008
6004 indicates AutoCAD Architecture 2008

If it is a difference between Inventor Simulation and the vanilla Suite in
this way it might be possible to do what you want and if you select to
install to different folders. If not, your reseller is probably right.

I've been able to do this with AutoCAD products using registry hacks. However, Inventor doesn't follow the same rules. Although I was successful in converting AIS10 from nw to sa after lots of time and work, it just isn't feasible or possible to have both types on the same machine. Sorry.
