OK, I had this issue yesterday and I contacted my VAR about it.   She checked it out and looked at my Rx.  Rebooting fixed the problem yesterday.

Today, it came back......and rebooting didn't help.  She said that I had some Windows updates that have failed and my video card driver is the latest...but not the latest approved.  I was aware of the video card thing and I have my IT department on the windows update thing (in fact, we will have a meeting scheduled with my VAR tomorrow).

I tried installing the correct Video card driver about a month ago and had major problems immediately.  So I reverted back to the latest driver from NVIDIA.  I even contacted NVIDIA about it and had me make some adjustments to my NVIDIA Control panel.

So, I am sending this to the VAR to see what else can be done.

In the meantime, I would like to know if anyone else has seen this issue?


Here is the issue:

I create a new part, draw a simple box, and extrude it.  Immediately, I get an error: "An invalid argument was encountered."


I click OK and it immediately comes back.  If I click OK about 10 times, it goes away, and gives me what looks like an extrude.  Except it is missing the distance dimension box:


I cannot type in this box at all.

At this point, if I hit the green check, it finishes:


I can edit the distance dimension:

But, as soon as I edit the feature itself, I get the invalid argument issue immediately, and it starts over.



I am attaching this part that you see in the pictures, but I am not sure if that will do any good, as I suspect it is an internal issue.
