New Features and Enhancements

Administrators have the ability to set the local workspace location during install/deployment of Desktop Connector.
This capability allows admins to enforce a company standard workspace. (CDX-24152)

  • Before upgrading, review the content on the Admin Change Workspace page to determine if deploying an enforced workspace is the right decision.
  • Autodesk has changed the way the installers are extracted and files are downloaded prior to installation.
  • Stability fixes have been implemented primarily enhancing the Autodesk Identity Service and Desktop Connectors sign-in/sign-out workflows. (CDX-24020)

CAD Workflows

  • Fixed an issue that generated an empty viewable for Inventor assembly files when using the Upload Files and References tool. (CDX-24069)
