I upgraded from SW 2104 to 2018, but the vault PDM disappeared. Can anyone help?
What version of PDM were you using? Did you upgrade that from 2014 to 2018 too?
I only upgraded the SolidWorks through downloading the file from SolidWorks - I was using SolidWorks Premium 2014.
I cannot find anywhere to download PDM.
PDM will only work with the same version of SolidWorks or possibly 2 versions back. You cannot have a newer version of SolidWorks and an older version of PDM. If your company installation of PDM is still on 2014, you will not be able to connect it with the 2018 version of SolidWorks. Here is a link to a blog that talks about this: https://www.javelin-tech.com/blog/2016/11/upgrade-solidworks-without-upgrading-pdm/.
Thanks for your reply although it gives me a headache.
I will not need to use 2014 anymore, so do you have any idea how I can upgrade the PDM vault data from 2014 to 2018 ?
You would need to upgrade the entire PDM system (SQL Server database, Archive servers, etc). Then you can upgrade your computer's installation of PDM. Sorry it is not what you really wanted to hear.
If you only update your computer's installation of PDM, it still would not work because it would not be able to connect to the servers.
I suggest contacting your VAR along with your IT dept and have them take care of it.
Also, if you have some network licences, make sure to upgrade your network licence manager too or else those with network licences won't be able to work.
