Vault 2012 opening screen

791 Views, 22 Replies

Is there any way to turn off the initial "Welcome to the Autodesk Vault 2012 Family of Products" screen that displays when Vault is opened? Would prefer it just go right to vault root, as it used to.

Thanks.

what annoys me more, is upon launching Vault 2012 Pro, the instance isn't the active window, and will even open behind other programs! proper annoying! Especially if you need to type a password. The cursor blinks, you type and nothing happens.

There isn't a way to turn this off, however if you select Project Explorer in the left pane and close Vault and restart it.  It will reopen in Project Explorer.

What is "Project Explorer" in left pane?  I have "Vault Explorer", but not Project Explorer.

Project Explorer is an option in the higher versions of Vault.

Did you ever get an answer to this?  We just switeched to 2012 and this is very annoying.

No not really, but if you have the higher versions of Vault it does remember where you left it when you closed it down. i.e: Project explorer, Item Master, ECO's etc..

OK, thanks.  

 

I meant to ask you about both threads.  The annoyance of not being focused in the Login Box when Vault loads, and the startup screen.  I have to type a password and it's a pain to have to click in the window first to do it.  2011 didn't do that. I wonder if 2013 does . . .
