We are planning on updating to SolidWorks 2011 soon. If we are at 2011 will be able to access the files on the PDMServer if it's at 2010, until we update it? Had problems when we updated from 2009 to 2010 and PDMServer was still at 2009.
No. It will work the other way around meaning the server can be newer version with the clients
being older but not the way you are talking.
When I had to upgrade to a newer version I had make sure no one was accessing the server,
stop the servince to the server and then upgrade it. Then clients could access it after that.
Thanks Scott. Isn't that counter-intuitive to the way most people would think it would work? Newest version, backward compatibility and all that? I appreciate your answer.
Funny how the human mind works and thinks sometimes. Softwares in
general have always been like this for as long as I can remember.
