Autodesk Inventor 2008 (good) vs. 2010 (bad)

Postby madworm » 25. Nov 2010, 18:44

Hi,

Autodesk Inventor 2008 runs just fine and pretty smoothly on a virtualized XP SP3 using VB 3.2.8 with 1.5GB RAM and 128MB VRAM allocated.

Unfortunately the newer 2010 completely misbehaves. It still uses DirectX 9 and starts, but is terribly slow and almost instantly crashes when opening a 3D object. Is there a way to get this sorted out? What can I provide?

I'm happy to report that AutoDesk Inventor 2010 now runs quite well with Virtualbox 3.2.12 :D

Initially it complains about missing Direct3D 9, but switching to 'software graphics' or OpenGL resolves it. I didn't install the VB Direct3D driver btw.
