    Lost the keys to your Vault? Here is how you fix the Missing Vault Tab problem in Autodesk Inventor 2016:

    • First of all, make sure you have your Vault Project activated: Close all open files in Inventor, and navigate to the “Get Started” tab. Open Projects.

    • Once you are confident that you have the right project selected, close the Projects window and navigate to the “Tools” tab. Hit “Add-ins”.

    • Check if Inventor Vault add-in is Automatic / Loaded. If it is unloaded, select the add in, and check the box at the bottom of the window that says “Loaded/Unloaded”.
    • Right-click anywhere and hit “Show Hidden Members”.

    • Find the “EDM Addin” and load it. Tick the “Load Automatically” box as well.

    • Restart Inventor. 

    That’s it, your Vault Tab should now be in the ribbon.

    Inventor Vault doesn't show up in my list after following all of the instructions. Now what?

    Hi Terry ensure that the correct Vault project is activated. Easiest way to do this, is to select the Vaulted project file, and to then create a new part file, this will activate the project. If you have followed all of the other steps, your Vault ribbon should appear. If not you could try firing Inventor up as Administrator. If this does not work, you more than likely have something on your system which is causing an issue, these are generally things like anti-virus programs blocking certain dlls or insufficient user privileges.
