Lately users of Autodesk Inventor 11, 10 or 9 have lost the creation of text in the idw files. This was a result of a hotfix brought by Microsoft. They are not to blame but it did create problem in Autodesk Inventor. To fix the issue we had to uninstall the Microsoft Hotfix KB918118 and then everything was back to normal. Now this solution can be put away, Autodesk has come up with a there own hotfix. Hmmmm hotfix for a hotfix, got to love the software business.
Here are the links to the Autodesk Hotfix solution.
