Well, yeah, ok maybe we do. Especially if we’re running Vault. Somehow, the boys and girls in Manchester managed to get the patch for 2008 to play with ADMS (Vault) 2009 uploaded and it slipped by us. Read on for more info and the link.
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.
So, if you’re running 2008, and struggling to get all the upgrades done in a weekend, or want to update a few folks to 2009 while most of the firm is on 2008, here’s your golden ticket.
