Is there a Solidworks viewer that can be installed on a serves based system and can be accessed using remote desktop?
Needs to be able to view drawings and models.
Not sure what's purpose to install in the server but eDrawing is free and can be installed on any computer for viewer
For whatever reason, the IT guy sold my boss on remote desktop (before my time) for everyone's computer. Everyone has these little small cracker-jack style boxes on their desk - little bitty computers.
Everyone except me...I told him up front that I would not be working off of one of those small things and that I would not connect via remote desktop. (Honestly, I think he went this route so he can spy on everyone).
So, even though he uses a laptop, he will connect to his remote desktop from anywhere. He does not want to switch between screens and wants to install a single version of a viewer that can be accessed from anywhere.
it's sad - Huh... there are few better ways to spy the users - why he ended it up to this old technology (early 90's) which ties everyone up
Anyway, if you're stuck with this guy then read this
Yes, it is sad that he has had past employees to make him feel that he needs to do this. Because I am privy to the past work force here, I can't necessarily blame him though.
Thank you for your input. I will check in to your link.
eDrawings is no longer available for 32 bit operating systems. This is a dilemma we're facing.
We have those crap boxes here. The Engineers all have desk top stations and not the crap boxes. The boxes are 32 bit. We are running 2016 soildworks so the people who have the crap boxes can not view are drawings because the boxes will not run a 64 bit viewer. Thank you IT.
One option I haven't tried (not sure our IT will go for it) but might work is to run an Android emulator and install eDrawings from Google Play.
You try that and let me know if it works. Then I will lobby our IT department. I am a thorn in their side.
Yeah they tried sticking me with one of those boxes when I first started. I threatened to take the other job that was being offered at the time.
I now have the most powerful computer in the company
Our IT department tried that here. I went toe to toe with them. Almost got fired. But our 50 engineers were happy I took them on.
