I am having issues getting my .dwg files to check back in to Vault Basic. I can get all different types of files (.iam .ipt .idw) to check in without issues, but .dwg files hang and Inventor will eventually lock up.
I've tried disabling Visualization and I still cannot make it past this point. I can even tell it to check in everything at once, and it will breeze through the other files but any .dwgs will hang. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
My PC Config:
Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz
16 GB RAM
Dual AMD Radeon HD 6450
I'm running Product Design Suite 2014

Solved! by sebgonz. See the answer in context.
Alright. Here is the solution. Subscribe to this, in case you ever need it.
1. On all ADMS’, examine the content of the ‘C:\Windows\Temp’ directory for ‘UNDDACAD.ac$’.
2. Check the file date. If it is much older than the installation date (or if you want to test this), proceed…
3. Invoke IISRESET /STOP.
4. Move ‘UNDDACAD.ac$’ out of the ‘C:\Windows\Temp’ directory.
5. Invoke IISRESET /START.
6. Test DWG check in.
a. The check in will generate a current version of ‘UNDDACAD.ac$’ (you may want to verify the new date).
Chris mentioned this, but did not mention the part about stopping and restarting the IIS server. Thanks to everyone who tried to help me with this. I owe you all beer or donuts.
Do you have any iLogic rules in your drawings? If you do try suppressing them before checking the drawings into vault. If it works after suppressing the rules then you can narrow it down to the code that is interfering with checking it in.
Not sure if this is the problem but I hope this helps.
Thanks for the reply. I don't have any iLogic in the drawings. Actually, I don't think I have any iLogic in any parts that I'm currently experiencing this with.
I did forget to mention that this is happening on 3 different systems. I'm not the only user here experiencing it.
I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "created directly from Inventor 3D assembly". We create the dwg separately and place our views into it.
I noticed that there is a Logo on your drawing. Do you know how that is inserted into the drawing? If it’s a linked picture in Vault it might cause some problems depending on how it’s checked out or checked in.
It is embedded. It has not caused any issues in previous releases.
I've also created this video showing exactly what I'm doing when I get the error. http://youtu.be/njbztuGn4TI
Additionally, after I manage to get out of the frozen screen, if I can without having to kill the process, I get this error:
"The server returned the following information: The underlying connection was closed: A connection that was expected to be kept alive was closed by the server."
I have had this issue before, it is frustrating as hell. You need to open your main assembly, go to the vault view on the browser instead of the model view. Expand every single subassembly until you find the part or parts that are red and check it out. It will most likely be a library file that was converted from a previous release that did not take properly. And I expect everytime you open this assembly and say yes to replace from vault, the same thing will occur unless you open that library file directly and save it with a library modification project path.
I don’t know if this will make any difference:
Hope this helps
Is this the only file you are having problems with?
I just tried what you suggested. I showed hidden files, deleted the dwf, and tried checking in the dwg. That still hasn't fixed the problem. It happens with any dwg I try to check in. Even brand new dwgs created in Inventor 2014.
I'm starting to think that it may have something to do with the vault server installation. I have no theory as to why, but where it's happening with 3 different systems, it makes more sense to me.
