    This Service Pack 1 addresses multiple issues for Inventor 2015. Issues addressed in Update 1 and Update 2 are also addressed in this Service Pack 1.

    Here is what is addressed in Service Pack 1:
    Stress Analysis
    • Face selection for FEA loads and constraints unsupported prior to this enhancement.
    • This Service Pack 1 addresses Heartbleed vulnerability - a security bug in the open-source OpenSSL cryptography library. Heartbleed is registered in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures system as CVE-2014-0160. For more information, please visit the CVE dictionary at http://cve.mitre.org.
    • ComponentOccurrence.Excluded API does nothing and returns an error.
    • Memory leak occurs when calling the API method AttributeSet.Add on an object that is a member of an OccurrencePattern object.

    • Inventor API incorrectly places the ArcLengthDimConstraint into Geometric Constraint collection, instead of the Dimension Constraint collection.
    • Inventor API Edge.CalculateStrokes behavior is inconsistent.
    Application Functionality
    • Inventor unexpectedly exits due to the incomplete handling of peek message loop while running a spreadsheet edit related workflow within Inventor.
    • Inventor becomes unresponsive when you use measure tool in drawing.
