hello guys,... first: please sorry for my poor, poor english!
some strange things happened next -i suppose- the last Win7-64 S.O. update: every time i start Google Chrome, also start Solidworks EPDM...
anybody know what happens?
I bet something within Chrome is pointing to a file within your vault.
Is your "Downloads" location pointing to a location within the vault? Did you install any Chrome extensions in the vault?
hello Jeff, thanks for answer...
I have verified your hypothesis: "Downloads location" of Chrome is my desktop, and nothing in the vault appear to be a part of Chrome...
I also tried to uncheck all the extensions of Chrome, but nothing change...
...any other idea?....
I have no idea.
If I was in your place, the next thing I would try would be to uninstall Chrome. Then log out of the vault and exit EPDM
Now reinstall Chrome and assuming you are still out of EPDM, --we can hope nothing in Chrome is using files within EPDM?
This is an interesting problem! Keep us in the loop!
nothing, I tried to uninstall and reinstall Chrome it but nothing has changed.
I have been having this same problem, and cannot track down where it is coming from. I recently updated some API's, but uninstalling them did not fix the issue. It's actually causing some serious license issues, since users who don't need a license are logging in when they get the prompt and holding on to it.
What version of chrome and EPDM are you running?
Chrome version: 26.0.1410.43m
EPDM Client Version: 12.02.0615
Chrome: Versione 26.0.1410.64 m
I also checked the registry, looking for possible evident linkages between the path of EPDM and registry keys of Chrome, but I could not find anything ...
Maybe this is EPDM's way of tell us it is time to upgrade to 2013...
This may be different, but it is similar in the respect the ePDM is getting launched to login when just browsing.
What can cause Enterprise PDM login dialogs to show frequently for vaults not logged into when right-clicking folders on the task bar or typing paths in address bar in Windows® 7?
Windows 7 adds so called "jump lists" containing links to recently (frequent) opened folders and files. If the jump list contains vault folders, and the user is not logged into the vault in question, it will likely show a login prompt when Windows is displaying the folders.To prevent this from happening disable the jump list as follows:1. Right-click on the taskbar and select “Properties”2. In the “Taskbar and Start Menu properties” dialog box, switch to Start Menu tab 3. Deselect the option named “Store and display recently opened items in the Start menu and the taskbar” to the disable jump lists feature4. Click on the “Apply” button to save the changes.
Thanks for weighing in Jay. This does not seem to be the problem though.
For some reason the EdmServer.exe process is being called by chrome after starting up the browser.
Interestingly, nothing matching the process ID of EDMserver.exe (in this case, 4672) shows up in the chrome process explorer.
Thanks for the tip, Jay. That worked like a charm! That problem was driving me mad! Funny how I searched the KB and never found anything (Must not have been the right terms).

I take it back, I'm still having the problem. Oh well, too bad.
