I'm trying to setup 2016 Workgroup PDM and 2016 Solidworks on a single machine.

Did a clean install of both PDM and SW (SP 5.0)

Here are the symptoms:


  1. VaultAdmin works, I can open, add users, change settings.
  2. Soliworks Explorer works and shows "My Vault" location with my test project setup
  3. ViewSetup doesn't work!
    • Can't see any servers
    • If I do "Add -> Localhost, port 40000" I get an error "The socket was closed gracefully on the other end"
  4. Server log does show "Server is running. Request Port listening for connections on PORT: 40000. WORKER THREADS: 10"
  5. Within SolidWorks, PDM Client add-in runs but no prompt to login, and all of the PDM menus/buttons are grayed out


Any thoughts?
