This app adds an item to the right click context menu in the Vault Explorer called DirectView. Selecting it will automatically download and open the latest version of the selected file using the Autodesk® Inventor® View application on your system. In most cases it is faster than the 'View In Window' command. If the selected file is an assembly, all the associated files that are available will be downloaded as well. If the selected file is a drawing or a part, only the selected file will be downloaded.
The first time you run DirectView from contect menu you will be prompted to choose the InventorView application to use for viewing files. The default location for the InventorView application is in the ""C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2016\Bin\InventorView.exe" folder.
There is also a command on the 'Tools' menu of Vault Explorer called 'Select DirectView Viewer App'. This command can be used after an Autodesk Inventor upgrade to ensure that the correct version of InventorView is used.
