Not being in IT and therefore not aware of all the settings, is there any setting in vault that control the types of files that are allowed in vault? Does 2014 have an add-on for Autocad Drawings? As I know even in 2011 I can not add Autocad Drawings without checking them into the vault through Autocad itself. Of course in 2011 it allows inventor drawings saved as dwg to be checked in, so not sure how this could affect it unless they forgot to add dwg acceptance?
You do have to check them in through Inventor, or else you get an error telling you that you have to use the correct program to perform that operation. I have not looked through the vault settings to see if there is anywhere that allows or disallows file types. I will do this next.
I can't believe no one from Autodesk has bothered to chime in yet!
Our dev team recently investigated this; on the vault server, please look for & then delete the temporary file:
The retry the dwg check-in.
Hop ethis helps,
Deleted that Temp file, still having the same issues. My system as well as two others are still hanging when checking in to vault.
This is now beyond frustrating.
I'll ask for further info from the vault dev team & reply back.
As an additional test it wouldn't harm to try deleting all files in the %temp% folders on the clients too. Any files in use won't be removed.
Yeah, I did that at the same time as deleting the temp file you referenced. I installed everything in the Design Suite, thinking that maybe I had unchecked something vital to the install when I set my preferences, but it didn't make a difference.
