Inventor RESET Utility


You want to use Autodesk® Inventor™ Reset Utility to reset the local Inventor environment for a Windows® User Account. 
Damaged local user account settings can impair the normal operation of Autodesk Inventor. 

Common symptoms include:
  • Unable to export AutoCAD™ DWG 
  • Unable to launch add-In
  • Add-In commands are greyed in the ribbon
  • Dialog boxes do not appear after launching a command
  • Import/Export commands do not function
  • Program crashes when entering add-in workspace 


Note: It may be necessary to lower the User Account Control settings to the lowest level and temporarily disable any anti-virus software for the reset activity. 

To lower the User Account Control settings:
  1. Browse to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\User Accounts.
  2. Select "Change User Account Control Settings."
  3. Move the slider to the lowest setting, "Never Notify."
  4. Select OK.
This process will remove all customizations done in the following areas:
  • Ribbon
  • Keyboard shortcuts
  • Marking menu
  • Application options
  • Current Autoload state for Inventor add-ins
  • Current state of Welcome Screen
  • Recently opened files
  • Vault Server login information
