  • Running Autodesk Inventor R11 on Windows 7

    I have just got a new laptop with windows 7 and am trying to run Autodesk Inventor R11. I can run it in the XP mode but it does not work very good, is there any way to run it on Windows 7?

    Have you tried running R11 with XP mode compatibility?

      You have r11? Not sure it has native x64 support, you are supposed to pay up and upgrade to Autodesk Inventor 2010 or Inventor 2011 I think.

      Your choice would be to install a 32bit OS, then download a Ramdisk program and put unaddressed RAM (over the 32bit OS's 4G limit) into a RamDisk and use that as the swap file.
      A slimmed WinXP Pro x32 SP3 install is probably best.

      IV 11 is old enough that there is probably no longer upgrade pricing available.

      Edit: For about US$20 you can buy Dataram Ramdisk, it's the Ramdisk software I use. Of course, there are many good ramdisk software programs out there, a free one is Gavotte's Ramdisk , still being developed for 32bit OS by Chinese programmers.
