If you have installed Vault 2018.2 Update, you are aware that Vault now using Inventor Server to process Inventor jobs through the Job Processor. The Job Processor processes DWF creation, updating User Defined Properties (UDP) and PDF creation of Inventor and AutoCAD files. If, for some reason, you would like to switch back to using the full version of Inventor to process these jobs, you can by performing the following steps.
Steps to Switch
- Open Windows Explorer and navigate to the <install dir>\Vault Professional 2018\Explorer folder.
- Make a backup copy of the following files: Connectivity.VaultPro.config / JobProcessor.exe.config / Autoloader.exe.config
- Edit the config files, using Notepad, and add the following key in the <appSettings> section:
<add key=”UseInventorApplication” value=”1″/>
- Save the files and restart the applications.
Note: If you copy the text in step three and paste them into the configuration files, the paste will put in the wrong quotes around “UseInventorApplication” and “1”. Delete the quotes after you have pasted in the key and re-add them.
