ERROR - Workbench plugin for Inventor does not work
Authored by Aaron Schedlin April 12th, 2023 669 views 0 likes KB1900111
Workbench button is visible in Inventor but when clicked nothing happens or you receive a plug-in error. Example:
Software & Version
*This documented instance of this error occurred in this version but is not necessarily limited to this version.
This could happen if previous versions of Inventor like 2020 or older version recently uninstalled or installed. Multiple versions of Inventor is always discouraged to avoid conflict with CAD Configuration of ANSYS.
*The cause(s) we identified in this documented instance may not be the only cause(s) for this error.
- Check Registry Editor path under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Inventor\Current Version - to make sure it points to the Inventor 2022 install path and the RegistryVesion value is 26.0
- Once that is done, run the CAD Config Manager 2022 R2 with Run as Admin and configure Inventor CAD interface WB plugin will succeed.
