My install of Product Design Suite Premium 2012 includes AutoCAD and AutoCAD Mechanical. In the AutoCAD profile ribbon menu thee is a Vault area. Thee is not one in the AutoCAD Mechanical ribbon menu. Is this on purpose? To check files in/out in AutoCAD Mechanical it appears I must use the drop down menu.
The following information is from Readme. Can you please try this and see if you can get the Vault Tab in the ribbon?
We have same issue at least on several PCs and there is no "VaAc.cuix" on the disk C at all.
Both Vault Pro and ACADM were reinstalled several times. What might be wrong?
What is your order of installation? Try this order and let us know how that goes.
1. Install ACADM
2. Install Vault Professional Client.
If you have the order in reverse way then try the following
1. Go to Control Pane->Add Remove Programs
2. Select Vault Pro Client - Add/Remove Features and then check whether AutoCAD Mechanical Add-in was selected or not. If not select and install
One of the above should help you to get the Vault add-in inside ACADM. Let us know if you cannot see the add-in still.
The key problem is:
In our product set Vault Pro 2012 Client installer is supposed to show at least 7 features in list of features :

But insted it shows only 4:
I wonder where is the rest? And how to make Vault Pro 2012 Installer see them?
Thanks for your reply.
Do you have the following installed and ran atleast once in that machine?
Also did you try uninstalling and installing just Vault Pro 2012 alone? If possible please send me the screenshot of your installed programs from the add/remove programs list.
I have similar problem with PrDS 2013 on several machines. On three of them Vault Client installation "see" only AutoCAD Mechanical, and doesn't see AutoCAD Electrical at all. On fourth machine installer was able to install add-in on Electrical, but not Mechanical.
I tried every possible combination - I uninstalled Mechanical to check, if Vault installer will see Electrical. Obviously Electrical was started and closed befor Vault installation, but nothing helps. Installer somehow chooses some AutoCAD and shows it on the list to install.
Can anybody help me to add Vault Workgroup add-in to my Electrical or Mechanical? I can load cui, but application component are also needed to be loaded to AutoCAD.
Thanks for any idea.
The UI language of your CAD installed should comply with language of Vault Client.
In some configurations you need to install two Vault clients of different languages ie (Pro and Basic).
So you probably use English Electrical and Polish Mechanical. Unfortunately Vault unlike Inventor does not support installing the same client in two languages on same PC but you can install Polish Vault Workgroup and English Vault Basic. This should help. We do so with English and Russian.
