Is it just me or is the new support area layout terrible for finding the latest SP or hotfix??!

Totally aggre with you.

 

Some needed change in my opinion:

- Set the sort order by default on the date, it will be better to find all hotfix and the order to install it.

- When you are under the detail page of an hotfix, display the date of release.

- Enable to select two kind of type (SP + Hotfix by example).

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes I also was a bit puzzled with "February 2014" as a date of
publishing the SR1SP1.

I found Vault 2014 Service Pack 2 from a link in an other thread.

http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Vault-General/Report-Template-Hell/td-p/4827165

 

If I search the autodesk Knowledge Network for "Autodesk Vault 2014 Service Pack 2" I can find it.

 

If I go to the Vault product page and select downloads, I can not. 

 

What is the correct way to discover all available service packs/hotfixes for any Autodesk product?

 

Please review the attached screenshot.

Yes it's horrible. On the old page I can get all I need in single one page, all I need to do is roll my mouse wheel, now I need to search, click Next, and so on.

I even cannot find Inventor 2011 Service pack 2 on the inventor download page, it's lost. The old way is much more better.

I agree with all other comments, new interface is difficult to navigate through and locate info.

 

Some service packs dont even show up. I also noticed that a google search that always used to take you to the relevant Autodesk service packs, do not anymore
