Quick poll: When you are notified of a software update, how often do you take the time to carefully read through the release notes before downloading and installing the update?
D) What are these "release notes" you speak of?
I think it's safe to assume that most of us aren't in the habit of reading the information about every update. If you're like me, you get the notice, click on the link to download, install and move on.
For this reason, I thought it would be a good idea to shine a spotlight on the most recent update to the Autodesk Desktop Connector (v. 188.8.131.521) released on March 25, 2021, as it made a couple of changes that may have taken many by surprise unless they "read the fine print" so to speak.
Following are the key modifications made when the v14.8 update is installed:
- In File Explorer and applications BIM 360 will now be called Autodesk Docs
- BIM 360 local cache in user profile will be moved to a new folder named ACCDocs
According to the release notes, the reference paths will automatically be fixed to include the new ACCDocs folder.
Lastly, if you need to revert back to an earlier release of Desktop Connector, be sure to follow the steps provided in the FAQ.
