Just wondering what the maximum number of add-ins you have in your vault? We currently have 10 and counting.


I have a concern regarding performance. Seems everytime you login, it has to load them all and the delay is getting longer and longer. Also, everytime you remove or add one, it re-downloads them all to your local folder at: "C:\Users\JCapriotti\AppData\Local\SolidWorks\SolidWorks Enterprise PDM\Plugins\Product Data".


For some users, this folder has over a 1000 folders and files. It's full of CLSID folders that represent each add-in with multiple copies of the same add-in's over and over even though they haven't changed. If we remove an add-in or add another, I can watch it add a new set of folders for each add-in.
