Notice if you use PDMW and are upgrading to Solidworks 2009.

* PDM Workgroup fails to recognize revision or checkout attachments during checkout of files with attachments.

Solidworks did reproduce the problem as a regression from 2008 to 2009. They've also given us an SPR number for this particular problem:

This seems to be a regression for 2008 to 2009. It is not always repeatable on a second attempt. Clearing the working directory, closing SolidWorks, restarting the pdmworks service and retesting will repeat the error.

The SPR is: 467559 " SolidWorks Workgroup PDM Check-Out does not recognize attachment revision when using "Get latest" resulting in error/ failed check out."
