I registered today as a student. I tried first to install 2016, but it seems I have a 32-bit system and 2016 is only available in 64-bit, so I continued with 2015 and after that with 2014, but with both it said that I should check system requirements and it took some searching, but it appears that you have to have at least windows 7. So that seemed to be the main problem. I tried to find system requrements and found that I need to have version 2013 or under with my windows vista system, but... in the student-download area the oldest version is 2014. So... is there any possibility of downloading version 2013??
I upgraded my PC to Windows 10 (Pro, 64 bit) about a week ago and have only just managed to download Inventor Pro 2013 and install it, however when I try and launch it it comes up with error 0xc0000142 - The application was unable to start correctly. I have tried the command line solution outlined elsewhere on this website and I cannot install Update 6 for SP2 because Windows Installer cannot find the program, even though it shows up on the list of programs in control panel.
I feel a bit daft now, I checked whether SP2 was installed, and it wasn't so I downloaded it and updated it all and everything now works. Could've sworn that it had already been installed with Inventor though.
This is the correct link:" -tools-for-inventor.htm"James the one you listed did not link properly and points to a page link without the .htm at the end which obviously does not work. Instead of just clicking the link please copy and paste the whole link into your web browser to ensure it works.
Overall the software is great. Clean and intuitive interface, lots of features, and integration with Inventor. What I couldn't find is the option to merge dxfs into one file, and ability to change export units.Merging the dxfs would be great option for weldments, when single part consist of multiple sub-components.Changing units is great option, if you design parts in both metric and imperial, but you would like to keep exported dxfs consistent. Also, metric parts cut on US stock materials would show the thickness in inches.Currently I'm using custom macro that can export single parts dxfs from inventor. It is not as advanced as this batch conversion tool, but it meets my needs. I was hoping this tool would be able to merge dxfs for weldments, but maybe on the next update.Keep up the good work! 2b1af7f3a8
