When trying to implement copy design parts for Inventor (2008) using Vault Explorer 2008, I get the following error message: "Copy Design is not supported on non-CAD files". It copies cad files just fine. Does anyone have any idea of what the issue is?
Can these parts be opened successfully on this machine? Is there Inventor 2008 installed? Copy Design requires supported Inventor and AutoCAD based products to be installed on the machine, see readme at http://crackingthevault.typepad.com/Readme_Files/2

Be sure to check out the Vault Help Wiki!
Yes, Inventor 2008 is on the machine. Parts open and can be checked out just fine. In fact, I can even check them out thru Vault Explorer. It cannot copy design however. I have checked the permissions on this machine and they are identical to the permissions on another computer we have that is able to copy design with no problems.
I have the same problem with Profession Inventor 2011 installed on a Windows 2008 Server x64. Will not let me make copies of designs. Throw an error "Copy Design is not supported on non-CAD files"
Red is a license, and other equipment using this license (when I do not use) You can make a copy without problems.
