I started reading the 2018 installation document and under the upgrading the database server section is states "Cancel the SolidWorks installation manger" and run "\SWPDMServer\setup.exe". In the past I have always done it this way. Unfortunately "\SWPDMServer\setup.exe" is not on the download I got from the customer portal. Do we now need to use the installation manager for server product upgrades? If we are using the installation manager, they need to rewrite the install guide.
I have the same question concerning upgrading the NetworkLicenseManager. In the past I have been able to upgrade to the next version. Now it wants me to uninstall and reinstall. Is this the new normal?
