Inventor 2014 DWG will not Check In to Vault

1.       On all ADMS’, examine the content of the ‘C:\Windows\Temp’ directory for ‘$’.

2.       Check the file date.  If it is much older than the installation date (or if you want to test this), proceed…

3.       Invoke IISRESET /STOP.

4.       Move ‘$’ out of the ‘C:\Windows\Temp’ directory.

5.       Invoke IISRESET /START.

6.       Test DWG check in.
a.       The check in will generate a current version of ‘$’ (you may want to verify the new date).
