I've tried searching the forum without much luck. We're currently looking in to whether we could make use of PDM. I've been asked to install the client without the server to see what it can do. I understsand there is the server and client components, but is it necessary to run the server component in order to create a vault ? Assuming this is so, and the vault is stored in a common network accessible area, can two solidworks clients both access the vault concurrently ?
