We recently upgraded from Inventor 2011 and vault 2011 to Inventor 2012 and Vault 2012. I am running 64 bit windows 7, I am not able to open from, save to, check in or check out from vault while in Inventor. I have no problems while in Autocad doing any vault commands. The vault add-in inside of Inventor is loaded. We have tried uninstalling Vault Client and reinstalling. Not sure what else to try.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Let's start with the obvious, do you have a Vault tab on the Inventor ribbon menu?
If so, is only the "log in" icon highlighted?
If yes, you need to log into Vault from within Inventor. Then make sure you have the correct project selected and active.
Do you have a Vault ipj active? If you have a non-Vault ipj active, the Vault commands are not available.
I should have said that. Yes my project file is set to the vault project, and I am loged into vault inside of Inventor, and the connection status says I am connected.
That's interesting. All of your symptoms point to having a non-Vault project file active in your project editor. If you don't have a Vault add-in active, you can still see the Vault buttons but they are all grayed out.
If you want, showing a screen capture of your project editor might help confirm.
Here is a group of screen shots showing the active project, the vault controls locked out, and what add-ins are active in Inventor. Thanks for the help
My workspace is set to the X:\work because our computers are setup to have the local drive with the operating system on it frozen. The X: drive is a local partition that is not frozen.
Thanks for the clarification. Have you mapped the project file to Vault folders yet?
I am not sure what you mean. The project file was mapped when it was autoloaded into the vault last year. Do I need to remap it after upgrading?
