BIG problem with KB918118!

Well, it's been a while since I've had time to post, but here's a good reason to get one up there.

Late Friday we ran into an issue where the Microsoft hotfixKB918118 causes the Inventor drawings to have text disappear and become uneditable (see doc here).

Autodesk is working with Microsoft to fix the issue, but right now your best best is to uninstall that hotfix.

    I've rolled back the patch to get my text back - but no baseline dimensions work now as well !!!

  2. I haven't seen this one. But you may want to double check and make sure that you uninstall as an Administrator.

    We saw one case where someone uninstalled without Admin rights. The update appeared to uninstall, but didn't. They reinstalled as admin, then uninstalled as admin, and all was well.

    I hope this helps!
