In a continuing effort to provide high quality products, Autodesk has released the AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2008 - Autodesk Vault 2009 (Server) support patch. AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2008 includes the Autodesk Data Management Server (ADMS) 2008 and AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009 includes Autodesk Vault 2009 (Server) for AutoCAD® Civil 3D® version. The ADMS 2008 and the Autodesk Vault 2009 (Server) cannot be installed side-by-side on the same machine. This support patch will allow you to connect to the Autodesk Vault 2009 (Server) from AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2008 (with Service Pack 2 installed), allowing you to upgrade to the new version of the server independent from your upgrade to Civil 3D® 2009. However, applying this support patch does not allow you to use AutoCAD® Civil 3D® 2009 drawings with ADMS 2008.
