Well, that's good to hear! We just switched from 2011 to 2012 a couple of weeks ago, so it'll be a long time before we will see the change . . . (The Powers That Be here don't realize that we are actually one year behind in releases.) Autodesk should not name them by the year, it's confusing. They think we have just upgraded to the latest version.
I have been searching for a solution to this opening screen problem as well. It's a waste of time and an annoyance to see the "Welcome to the Autodesk Vault 2012 Family of Products" page every single time I open Vault. Is there any way to customize Vault to get to open in with the Vault Explorer folder selected?
We are currently using:
Copyright 2011, Autodesk, Inc.
And it could be quite a while before we upgrade again, so we really need to find a solution to this problem soon.
Open the Vault client.
Click the Project Explore tab in the lower left corner.
Close Vault client.
Reopen Vault client and it should open to the Vault Explorer $ folder.
I am sorry, you must be using Vault Basic which doesn't have this. Sorry but there isn't a way to open to the root folder in that edition.
