Inventor 2022 crashes with a CER(crash error report) creating a new assembly or trying to open an existing assembly.


This happens after installing any Inventor 2022 update, currently 2022.1 or 2022.1.1.  The update isn't applied properly to all installation files and causes a crash.


Running a clean uninstall of Inventor 2022 or uninstalling/reinstalling the update(s) typically doesn’t resolve the problem.

To attempt to remove the update(s) and reinstall them per this Autodesk article, get a full download of the update from your Autodesk Account.

►To find updates in your Autodesk Account:  Locate products updates in Autodesk Account

Autodesk is working on a solution and in the meantime uninstall any updates that are causing a crash.
