I am Trying to convert my vault documents. Is anybody struggling to update drawings? I have not had one drawing update for me.
I have not been able to get the out of the box task scheduler to work with files in the vault. Are you using it with EPDM? Whenever I try to use the task scheduler to update files it gives a message "The file is read only, the task will not be scheduled." I had to use the EPDM File Version Upgrade tool to upgrade our files and still had issues with drawings and assemblies.
I very seldom get Task Scheduler to work on anything. SolidWorks or Windows TS.
We are using Workgroup PDM.
I am finding that one file in the project I am updating is causing all of the following files to fail.
make sure you update the files in small groups. If your vault is very large, that's alot of open/update/copying to do. The last time I used the TS, as soon as I updated smaller clusters of project folders it didn't hang.
Also make sure the computer you're running the task scheduler on has plenty of HP and disk space to handle the conversion.
I plan on updating the files during our 2010 upgrade, so hopefully it will go smooth.
I used the Task Scheduler (2009 sp5) to update 3,164 files. Very fast, about 5 hours. I've seen only about 12 failures, most have to do with Toolbox files.
