I just installed Inventor 2012 Publisher (Network License) on my PC, which also has Inventor 2012 (Stand Alone) and the vault client.
If I try to insert an .iam, I get the first error message, if I try to insert an .ipt I get the second.
I have the vault working folders for Publisher setup the same way I do for Inventor.
See attached file for error messages.
