As you can see in the picture, I do not have PDM Standard included. What's wrong? Workgroup PDM is getting shut down and we can't use the replacement???
It is part of your SOLIDWORKS license but you do need to get it activated by your VAR (SOLIDWORKS). After SOLIDWORKS activates it you should only have to re-read your license on the SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWorkL icense Manager.
Thank you for the answer.
I was a bit too fast to post, found this answer on other threads after posting. It's just so frustrating, after trying to get support from our reseller in installing this, they didn't even think to mention that they have to send another license?! To be fair, they did say "If they didn't get to charge 10.000 SEK for the installation, they wouldn't provide support". But i'm guessing they are obligated to provide me with the license? Or can I get that directly from Solidworks?
Providing you have SOLIDWORKS Pro or Premium you’ve paid for PDM Standard as part of your software & subscription purchase. Your VAR is totally obligated to get you the code so that you can install/run PDM Standard. It’s terrible that they trying to tie your support to if you pay their ransom for installation/implementation. I’ve heard of a few VAR’s doing that here in the US as well. Personally, I believe that if a VAR must resort to those tactics to get your $ then it might be time for a new one.
As a SOLIDWORKS Service provider it makes it difficult, as some companies get scared off when their VAR uses those tactics. There are several service providers like myself that can help companies get their vaults installed & running providing just as good if not a better a implementation.
