So as I understand it the libraries I create, the files in them cannot be changed at all if they are in the libraries. This really stinks bad. I have the libraries organized for my work. Having to move them to new locations each time is a hassel and slows down progress. This is something that Autodesk needs to look at making some changes on. I shuold be able to setup the library so that I can turn work plains on and off and things like this or even make constraint changes to go with the work I am doing.
Like I hinted at in one of my other postings, you might want to look at publishing these parts into the content center.
That way they are always there and never move. Plus they are secure. As long as you have a good backup system in place. I would also recommend if you do decide to do this, to place the CC on a secure network.

If you need to be constantly changing parts, a library folder is not the right place for these parts. Put them in a standard project folder, and your life will be much easier.
The other thing you can do is set up a second project file, where the workspace is defined as your library. This is what I've done, and it makes editing library parts - on the rare occasion that I need to - much easier.
Cadmanto - the whole "not checked out to you" behavior is what Inventor says when it encounters a part that it believes should be read-only, or when the file is marked as read-only in Windows. It has nothing - in this case - to do with Vault or with machine permissions.
