I have a Vault Pro 2013 client installed with all the viewers, but NO CAD software (i.e. Inventor).
From the Windows file explorer when I double-click or RMB and select Open on an Inventor .ipt file it opens in Inventor View as you would expect. From the same computer, when in the Vault client I select an Inventor .ipt file and select Open it wants to open the file using Inventor. It actually gives me an error stating that Inventor is not installed on this computer.
So my question is...Is this designed behavior? Does Vault have internal file to application associations versus Windows in this situation?
