Well, I'm sure everyone in the EV program got the email, just in case you didn't, here it is..


Subject : Solidworks 2009 SP2.0 EV (Early Visibility) Requires Uninstall

Cannot Upgrade SP2 EV to SP2 Full

Due to changes made in SP2 Full, the SP2 EV version cannot be upgraded to SP2 Full version.

If you have installed 2009 SolidWorks SP2.0 EV, you must uninstall it before installing 2009 SP2.0

Once 2009 SP2.0 EV is uninstalled, you can proceed by either:

a) Upgrading an existing SolidWorks 2009 SP0 or SP1.0 installation

b) A full download of 2009 SP2.0

Best regards,

SolidWorks Corporation

Only thing is, how do you remove the service pack? Me and my VAR tech were trying to figure it out.. At the present moment, it looks like you have to uninstall SW completely to do it. There is no rollback feature anymore, at least that we could find.. So, this is a warning to all, and also if anyone has successfully been able to rollback, please, say how it was done.
