When user tries to open the files with extension *.SAT in Autodesk® Inventor™ 2008 German versions, the opened *.SAT file has size 10 times bigger than original one i.e. the wrong scale. It is observed that Inventor did not honor the option setting for the "Units" particularly for these kind of file types.
To address this problem, Autodesk has released this Hotfix which is applicable to all the Autodesk® Inventor™ 2008 German versions.
