Not nearly enough Civil 3D users frequent the Vault newsgroups yet. One of the Autodesk folks was kind enough to point out a Hotfix that most Civil users know NOTHING about…even though it has been out for over a month.
Hey Support guys, why don’t you add stuff like this to the C3D downloads instead of letting users find this stuff on their own?
Hotfix: Microsoft Word slow after Vault Add-in installation
Published date: 2006-07-19 ID: TS1057489
Applies to: AutodeskÂ® Productstreamâ„¢ 5, AutodeskÂ® Vault 5
AND OH YEAH, all the C3D users using those who installed Vault
After you installed the Vault Word Add-in, you noticed that performance was slow when you were typing in Word. Performance degraded even further when you were working on documents that resided on a remote server or a slow network.
To install the hotfix:
Download and unzip the TS1057489.zip file into a temporary directory.
Double-click on the TS1057489.exe to install the update.
So, keep an eye on those Vault fixes. Even if you’re not USING Vault, it could be using you.
