It just tells me that whenever I open it, and the only option is to hit exit, which results in the window closing. How do I fix this?
This seems like something that would occur if you are trying to open the Inventor Installer instead of Inventor itself. The program you should open will be called Autodesk Inventor Professional 2024 while the installer will be called Inventor_Pro_2024_English_Win_64bit_Dlm_003_003.sfx. If you are opening the application itself I’d recommend you look for a solution or contact Autodesk at Support and Problem Solving | Autodesk Support
