That's a Roger Stewie. It works!
Thanks for your help.
Maybe Autodesk can fix it soon, so we don't need to use any workaround.
The workaround does seem to hold water pretty well. The most consistent way we've been able to make it work is as follows:
Some of our users were able to skip steps two and three. YMMV.
I've experienced this same problem. For me the server name was case sensitive. By correcting the case (upper case to lower case name for the server), the problem went away.

Thank you for letting us know. When you say "Dead link for the sevice pack("Page not found").", what did you select to get this message? Was it the "New" file item?
In my test with Update 1 for Inventor 2013, specifying a UNC path, e.g. \\ourserver\testing\templates, for the template location in the Application Options, then selecting the "New" button does display the templates in the "Create New File" dialog (after about 50secs first time, then 10 seconds subsequently). A new file could then be successfully created.
Any details you could provide would be great.
I've had the exact same problems as I use two different network drives and also my local disk (C: drive) for renaming. In my opinion it can work to have default templates and data styles etc on a network but it causes a massive loss of speed. I've been struggling this morning and come to realise Inventor works best with them on your C: drive. I believe Vault cures these issues, so I'm told.
