Autodesk has recently released a hotfix for Vault 2017. The patch is provided for both server and client for all of the current product range (Basic, Workgroup and Professional); there is also a separate hotfix for the Autodesk Vault Filestore Server (AVFS) for replicated sites. However, you may experience difficulties applying the service patch on server 2012 platforms and/or Windows 10 due to the higher privilege restrictions Microsoft has applied to both platforms.
To solve this issue, first using log in with Administrator rights, then open a command (DOS) window as Administrator.
Using the Microsoft OS `msiexec’ tool enter the following syntax listed separately below
To apply the server msp on Windows 2012 / R2 platforms enter:
msiexec /update <file path>AutodeskVault2017_2017.0.1_Hotfix(Server).msp
To apply the client msp on Windows 10 platforms enter:
msiexec /update <file path>AutodeskVault2017_2017.0.1_Hotfix(Client).msp
As when applying any update, service pack or hotfix … always read the instructions!!
