I have a cusotmer that is trying to use Inventor LT and Vault but we are having issues with setting the local workspace. Currently, the work path is going to %userprofile%/Documents/Vault/Designs but the actual workspace for Vault should be C:/Vault_local/Designs.
I have noticed that I can not change the Inv LT work path unless I unload the EDM Vault add-in. However, after unloading the add-in, changing the work path and then reloading the EDM add-in...the work path will go right back to Documents/Designs.
Is there anyway to set the Vault workspace for Inventor LT to match the Vault meaning Inventor LT does not use a project file?
Unfortunately the answer is NO. As mentioned in the Readme "When using Inventor LT with Vault, the user's workspace is hardcoded to %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\Vault\Designs and mapped to the root folder “$” in Vault. Workspace mapping cannot be changed. "
I appreciate the response. Can I share a concern?
If we are not able to change the workspace to match the proper file structure, then how does Autodesk recommend we use an add-in with a program that is built on file structure?
We are a multiple application company with different diciplines of cad applications with a set Vault Workgroup with a set folder structure, we recently bought 4 Inventor LT, only to find out its not compatible with our vault folder structure, why then the add in funtion, why hardcode something as simple as a vault add in.. doesnt make sense, and we would have bought 5 more seats, but is thinking twice now before commiting,
We understand your concern. I have forwarded this to the product management to take a look.
