I have a new computer with 64-bit Win 7 and I would like to install Inventor 11. Does anyone have some experience with it? I know it is an ancient version, but people claim they made it work.
I tried installing Inventor without compatibility mode and it stops at the Pre-installation checks window. It detects unsupported version of Windows there. I've googled the problem and there are basically two kinds of answers:
- Autodesk's official position is "It's not compatible, period - get a newer version"
- Various people claim they made it work quite normally, but they don't describe the procedure.
All I get is that simply installing in Compatibility mode for WinXP doesn't guarantee the program to work.
I know that WinXP Mode (virtualized XP) should solve the problem, but it also poses a new problem since there's only a generic graphic card in Virtual environment and I need 3D acceleration.
