    1970 Reference date Issue

    Kevin Vaughan

      I have recently switched from PDM workgroup to EPDM and updated to SW2010 SP2  - and ran the upgrade tool on all files in the vault.  Recently, upon checking in an assemlby I get a warning that the assembly is not rebuilt (even though I just did)  Expanding the warning shows that the child parts have a reference date of 1970 and need to be rebuilt.  Over time the number of files having this issue has increased - has anyone seen this?

      What the heck is a reference date?

      The attached assembly contains a sample

          Hi Kevin,


          There have been some reported issues with the file is rebuilt warning.

          The 1970 date is just a null value - meaning it cannot find the timestamp for the references in the assembly file being checked in.  Opening and saving in SW usually fixes it.


          Best Regards,

            I've been having this problem too.  I recently began using EPDM from another system due to position change and thought this might have been a quirk with newly registered files for some reason.  But the list below are files that have at least 2 versions, some even have over 12.  I have found NO WAY to rebuild deep enough to get this message to disappear forever.  I have gone down to the part level, done the "Rebuild All Configurations" trick, CTRL+Q, CTRL+B, etc.

            Anyone else seeing what Kevin and I are seeing on EPDM 2010 SP2.0??
