When starting Cable and Harness Report in Inventor 2016 a message is shown that file "MFC71U.DLL" is missing and Report Generator does not start.

“reportgenerator.exe - System Error

The program can't start because MFC71U.DLL is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.”

A resolution for this incident is being investigated for and Inventor 2016 hot fix

 

Workaround:

Copy needed files from an older Inventor release on your computer.

1. Go to Inventor installation folder of an older, existing Inventor release, typically "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 20xx\Bin" *

2. Copy files "MFC71U.dll", "MSVCR71.dll" and "MSVCP71.dll"

3. Go to Inventor 2016 installation folder, typically "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2016\Bin"

4. Paste files from step 2 to this folder.

--> Cable and Harness Report should work as expected now in Inventor 2016:

* 20xx --> Inventor release existing on your machine. 2015 --> Inventor 2015
