In a continuing effort to provide high quality products, Autodesk has released this utility which allows Autodesk Vault 2010 and Autodesk Vault 2011 installed with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 and AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 respectively, to migrate to Autodesk Vault 2012 successfully.
This README file highlights how to install this utility, and other important information regarding this update.
Migration from Autodesk Vault 2010 that is shipped with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2010 and migration from Autodesk Vault 2011 that is shipped with AutoCAD Civil 3D 2011 to Autodesk Vault 2012 will fail because those previous versions of Vault shipped with Civil 3D had Object Based Security (OBS) enabled whereas OBS is disabled in Autodesk Vault 2012.
