I have installed Product Design Suite 2014 on 5 computers at the company where I work at. For some reason, the Vault tab has disappeared from Inventor 2014 for 2 of the users. When I click on Add-In manager nothing comes up. We are using the Product Design Suite 2014 and Vault Pro 2014. As I said, it is only 2 out of 5 users who are having this issue. Does anyone have any ideal what the issue could be? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Could you take a look at this link ?
I hope that will help you.
I have 1 computer where the Vault tab will not show up. I found your link and tried that. When I right click to show hidden members, nothing appears. There are no EDM Addins to turn off or on. Can you provide me with any other ideas?
First of all, we made sure that Inventor and Vault had all of the service packs and updates. This seemed to fix the issue for most of our users. For those that it didn't, we found out that unfortunately, there is sometimes an issue with the user profile. If you create a new user profile, and copy everything over except appdata, it forces the program to re-register with Windows. This seems to have fixed it for our remaining users. I am sorry that there is not an easier answer for you. Good luck.
Service packs and updates are all good. We tried a new user profile but it came back with the same results - no EDM Addins appear.
I did try to do a repair on Inventor, and that did not work either. My next thought is to do an uninstall & reinstall on the Inventor software - but when I do this, will I have to uninstall & reinstall Vault as well? I only ask because when we do the initial installs, we have to make sure that all of the software is installed prior to installing Vault.
Are you on a domain? If you are, have a user who has never logged into this computer before log in. See if they have the Vault tab in Inventor. If they do, it is the user profile.
If you uninstall Inventor you have to uninstall Vault, but I would not uninstall Inventor. That is not your issue. Vault is because Inventor is not seeing it.
I can't remember exactly, but on the Inventor or Vault repair there is something called Tools or Utilities. There are checkboxes for the Vault add-in, Excel add-in, etc. Try checking that.
If you have any more questions, contact me.
That worked... We updated the Vault software, 'Add or Remove Features' and somehow Inventor was unchecked. We checked that box & all is well now.
Thanks for your help!
