I have recently configured this with a customer and it really did prove a little tricky, so I thought I would add this to my blog and share it with you.
Keep in mind that this is for Inventor LT/AutoCAD LT (Suite) 2012 with Vault Professional 2012 only AND for Subscription Customers!
The installation is quite simple, but the key is making sure you have the correct installation order and also have the relevant Service Packs, Updates and Autodesk Hotfixes. To get this to work, you can follow this procedure which I used.
- Install Inventor LT Suite 2012
- Make sure you include Service Pack 1 for both Inventor LT and AutoCAD LT 2012
- Install the Vault Professional 2012 Client
- Make sure you include Vault 2012 Client Update 1
- Next install the AutoCAD LT 2012 Vault Integration
- Install the AutoCAD LT 2012 Vault Add-In
- Install the TS18093130 Hotfix. This is for compatibility with LT SP1
- You can get both of these from the Autodesk Subscription Centre
- Finally install the Inventor LT 2012 Integration
- Install the Inventor LT 2012 Vault Add-In
- Install the Inventor LT 2012 Vault Client Update
- Again, these are only available from the Autodesk Subscription Centre
Quite a procedure I know, but that’s mainly because of the product updates that have occurred over the last 12 months.
Of course make sure you have the system privileges to install the products and most importantly, make sure with the above scenario, also install and migrate your Vault Professional Server 2012 to Update 1 also. ALWAYS take particular note of the README files at each step J. The readme files also highlight some limitations when using the LT products with Vault.
