Vault 2017 crashes on install

In the UK, follow this:

In Windows Explorer, go to this folder​ " C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\CLM\V3\MSVC14\resources\adlm
Copy the contents of the mainstream local folder to your locale.
For example: If you are using a Windows with a English (United Kingdom) locale, copy the "en-US" folder and paste it in the same location above but rename it to "en-GB" folder. 
Once this has been copied, it should be possible to start the Vault client without it crashing

After installing User Tools, Rev Cloud icon does not appear

When you install  UserTools.msi, it creates a folder called UserTools in the same place as the msi file. If you want the DrawingTools, you need to go into the UserTools folder > DrawingTools folder > Bin folder. The RegisterDrawingTools.exe will add the tool to the Inventor Add-Ins Tab.
  1. Open CMD.exe as administrator (use the right mouse button).
  2. Browse to C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2013\SDK\UserTools\DrawingTools\Bin (where DrawingTools.dll is located).
  3. Type REGSVR32 DrawingTools.dll and press Enter.
    You must use command prompt as administrator. Otherwise registration will not work.
