    Review the "Ongoing Toolbox Upgrades" section of the EPDM 2010 help BEFORE you upgrade to SolidWorks 2010 SP1

      If you manage (If not, you should…   ) the Toolbox 2010 libraries in EPDM 2010, I suggest that you review the "Ongoing Toolbox Upgrades" section of the EPDM help BEFORE you upgrade to SolidWorks 2010 SP1.

       

      Ongoing Toolbox Upgrades

      When you upgrade the SolidWorks software, Toolbox is upgraded if parts have been added. If the Toolbox root folder is in an Enterprise PDM vault, before you start the SolidWorks upgrade, you must prepare the Toolbox folder.

      On the first system to perform the upgrade, you must check out the Toolbox database and use Get Latest Version to download the Toolbox files to the local cache. On other systems that are upgraded, the only requirement is to download (Get Latest) the Toolbox files.

      To upgrade Toolbox:

       

      1. In File Explorer, check out the Toolbox database      (SWBrowser.mdb) from vault_name\Toolbox_folder_name\lang\your_language.

      You check out the Toolbox database so that the SolidWorks Installation Manager can write to it.

      1. Right-click the Toolbox folder and click Get      Latest Version to copy the Toolbox parts to your local cache.

      The files must be in the local cache so that the installed can verify whether parts need to be updated or added.

      1. Run the SolidWorks Installation Manager to      upgrade:
      2. In File Explorer, check in the Toolbox folder to      add any new or updated files to the vault.
      3. Upgrade the rest of the computers that use      Enterprise PDM integration with Toolbox:
        1. In File Explorer, right-click       the Toolbox folder and click Get Latest Version to copy the Toolbox parts       to your local cache.
        2. Run the SolidWorks       Installation Manager to upgrade.
