SW 2012 Upgrade process?

Question asked by John Steensen on Jun 12, 2012

Just was curious what the correct order of upgrades are, without interrupting service.


We are using network licenses, and will be upgrading to the 2012 SP3 level. We also have EPDM, currently 2011. (I need to upgrade that department wide as well)


From what I understand the process will go like this:


  1. Upgrade License Server
  2. Upgrade to SolidWorks 2012 SP3
  3. Upgrade EPDM Server 2012 SP3 (Access to EPDM breaks until clients are upgraded?)
  4. Upgrade EPDM Clients 2012 SP3


Trying to do this without any breaks in availablity if possible.
