Can I install Workgroup on a stand-alone compuuter that has SW on it? I want to use the get history option. I have to do a pack and go or save copy as and keep renaming/ creating folders ect. Kinda messy.
I take it that you are working alone, but want to utilize the organization that a vault brings along.
If you have SolidWorks Premium or Professional; you are entitled to a vault so a personal / local vault is no problem at all.
Later if you want to the vault can be shared with others or you can even move it to another machine.
You can install the Vault locally without any issue.
Make sure that you setup good practices for backing up your VaultData directory. This is one of big advantages of having a vault on a server is that servers are often backed up daily to prevent data loss.
When logging into a vault that is stored locally, you can enter 'localhost' as the Vault Computer when logging into the vault.
