PDM Standard

I was wondering if anyone would be able to assist me with my question on the “PDM standard” vault system?


Our licenses are on a network so by default anyone who opens SolidWorks it checks out the standard license, to get the professional license you need to manually go in and borrow it.


I have read about PDM standard being included with the professional license, my question is if someone wants to use the vault will then need to “add in” the professional license to be able to do so or could they access it using just the standard license?


We are currently running:

SolidWorks 2016 Service Pack 5.0






We currently do not have a vault system and are looking into moving forward on implementing one.
