Autodesk Vehicle Tracking SP1 Fixed Issues
Manually loading and running Autodesk Vehicle Tracking
If the installation process does not appear to work correctly, you may need to load and run Autodesk Vehicle Tracking manually. For more information, please see the following topics in the Help:
Unresponsive host application
When you start a supported host application after installing Autodesk Vehicle Tracking, and the host application appears to become unresponsive, it may be because a hidden dialog box is waiting for a response from you. Please use Alt+Tab to switch to and review the open dialog boxes on your machine and reply to any prompts as required.
Additional item in Programs and Features dialog box
On 64-bit operating systems, two items are created for Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 in the Programs and Features dialog box in the Windows Control Panel. These entries are Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 (32 bit) and Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 (64 bit). The 32-bit entry includes the support for MicroStation.
Autodesk Vehicle Tracking runs in all of the supported languages, but the installer is in English only.
Network deployment administrative image path
It is strongly recommended that you use a UNC path when specifying the administrative image path for a network deployment. For more information about network deployments, see the Autodesk Network Administrator's Guide.
Supported host applications
After you install Autodesk Vehicle Tracking, it is available in the supported host applications that were installed before Autodesk Vehicle Tracking if their license types are compatible with the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking license type.
Note: The licensing type compatibility requirement applies to AutoCAD and supported AutoCAD-based host applications only. Any Autodesk Vehicle Tracking license type can be used with MicroStation, regardless of how the MicroStation licensing is configured. For more information, see Supported license combinations.
The supported host applications are the following products:
If you install AutoCAD or supported AutoCAD-based host applications after installing Autodesk Vehicle Tracking, you must perform the following procedure in order to enable Autodesk Vehicle Tracking in those applications.
To enable Autodesk Vehicle Tracking in AutoCAD or supported AutoCAD-based host applications that are installed after Autodesk Vehicle Tracking:
Note: If you install MicroStation V8i (SELECTseries 1, 2, or 3) after installing Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017, you must uninstall Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 (32-bit) and then reinstall Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 in order to enable it on MicroStation.
Compatibility with Autodesk® Design Review
Autodesk® Vehicle Tracking 2017 cannot be run on the same computer as Autodesk® Design Review 2009. If Autodesk Design Review 2009 is on your computer, you can uninstall it either before or after installing Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017. Autodesk Design Review 2010 and later versions are compatible with Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017.
To uninstall Autodesk Design Review 2009:
Uninstalling Autodesk Vehicle Tracking
Uninstalling Vehicle Tracking 2017 will disable roundabout functionality in AutoCAD Civil 3D 2017. After uninstalling, please repair your AutoCAD Civil 3D installation.
For the uninstall process to function correctly, all versions of AutoCAD, AutoCAD-based applications, and MicroStation must be closed before uninstalling Autodesk Vehicle Tracking. If you are in doubt as to whether those applications are closed, please restart your computer and then uninstall Autodesk Vehicle Tracking before starting AutoCAD, an AutoCAD-based application, or MicroStation.
To uninstall Autodesk Vehicle Tracking so that it is no longer available within AutoCAD and supported AutoCAD-based host applications:
To unload the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking customization group from AutoCAD and supported AutoCAD-based host applications:

Transferring Autodesk Vehicle Tracking data between DWG files created with AutoCAD® and supported AutoCAD-based host applications and DGN files created with MicroStation®
If you use AutoCAD or a supported AutoCAD-based host application to open a DGN file that contains Autodesk Vehicle Tracking data, the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking data will not be accessible. Likewise, if you use MicroStation to open a DWG file that contains Autodesk Vehicle Tracking data, the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking data will not be accessible.
To access the data in either situation, you must first export the Autodesk Vehicle Tracking data using the source host application, and then import it using the target host application. For more information, see the following topics in the Help:
Compatibility between versions of Autodesk Vehicle Tracking
Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 is read compatible with Autodesk Vehicle Tracking, but users of older versions cannot open drawings containing Vehicle Tracking 2017 data.
Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Czech Tooltips
When running in MicroStation in Chinese Simplified/Traditional, Japanese, Korean, Russian and Czech, the tooltips displayed are in English.
Additional Content Available
There is additional content available for the following countries:
Compatibility between drawings
Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 can open DWG files that contain older versions of AutoTrack data (pre-AutoTrack v12.00 data). The older AutoTrack data will be converted to the new format when the drawing is opened. This is a one-way conversion. After the drawing that contains the converted data is saved, the data cannot be converted back to the older format by re-opening the drawing in an older version of AutoTrack (pre-AutoTrack v12.00).
Note: AutoTrack from Savoy Computing Services Ltd is not the same as Autodesk's feature called AutoTrack that exists within Autodesk® AutoCAD®.
Compatibility between library and standards files
Autodesk Vehicle Tracking 2017 can open AutoTrack (v9.00 and later) library and standards files. If you save these files in Autodesk Vehicle Tracking, they cannot be opened again in AutoTrack.
