As Autodesk Subscription customers on AIS & AIP get closer to receiving the latest update of Autodesk Inventor 10 software, it is a good time to review hardware setup for installation. Specifically, we would like to keep you updated on graphics card driver settings and DVD media.
We have been working with graphics card vendors like NVIDIA and ATI to correct issues in drivers for our new .NET functionality like Autodesk Inventor Studio and the Content Center. Our QA team has developed a new website featuring a comprehensive list of the latest Certified Graphics Drivers. We consider this website a "Must Read" for anyone intending to install Inventor 10 (AIS or AIP). In addition, issues related to BlackIce, Google, and specifics on disk space are covered on the new Hardware Requirements page. On top of the improved look and feel, this new website will be dynamically updated by the QA staff as new cards and drivers are released.
In addition, Autodesk Inventor 10 software will be shipped on DVD media in North America and Europe. If you prefer CD media (5-6 CDs) for this product, you can order one set at no cost. Please return the CD media request card which will accompany your product or simply complete the online form. As a side tip, I've already noted some good threads on the Inventor Newsgroup about sharing DVD drives over the network.
The feedback we have been getting from our Beta testers is fantastic and we can't wait to share Inventor 10 with everyone else.
