We've been using Solidworks for some years but not used PDM.
However after trying to get this up and running we got into abit of a issue.
Solidworks PDM 2018 SP5 works perfect, get contact with SQL and License servers etc.
But when adding the first vault it states license does not contain this type.
From my understanding running a Solidworks PDM does only require Solidworks pro or premium user licenses? Tried to find this in documentation but have not gathered any info regarding it other then the above.
