Through the API, you download a file and place it in the local workspace. But when you open up Vault Explorer, it says that the file has been edited out of turn.
After downloading the file, you need to set it to read-only (unless you have it checked out to you) and you need to set the create date of the local file to match the create date of the File object.
public void DownloadFile(File file, string localPath)
Public Sub DownloadFile(ByVal file As File, ByVal localPath As String)
The problem isn't that the file was downloaded wrong. The problem is that Vault Explorer expects things in a certain way. If you want to "play nice" with the Autodesk clients, then you need to perform a few extra steps.
