Commands

Installation/Uninstallation

The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store will start installing the app/plug-in. OR, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin.

You can unload the plugin without uninstalling it by unchecking the "Loaded/Unloaded" check box associated with the plugin in the Autodesk® Inventor® Add-In Manager. You may have to restart Inventor to completely unload the application.

To uninstall this plug-in, exit the Autodesk product if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button. OR, you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel/Programs and Features' (Windows 7/8.1/10), just as you would uninstall any other application from your system.

Additional Information

If the perpetual version of AutoSave is already installed, this version of AutoSave will not load. There is no need for this version if the perpetual version is installed.

Known Issues

If there are any floating/undocked windows within Inventor, the program will pause until they are docked/closed.

When operating in the "Tube and Pipe" environment and an autosave event occurs, the assembly may revert to an invisible state. If this happens the assembly will need to be opened again. There have not been any reports of data loss.
