Trying to install... but no luck !
Vault data, and everything will be in my own computer, so far now.
Then, I really don't know how to proceed when the wizard is asking me for the Server.... Please hace a look to the picture attached.
Hi I don't think that is the installer for SolidWorks Workgroup PDM. That looks like enterprise PDM is (based on the icons and port number)
Presuming you want workgroup PDM you can get the workgroup PDM server install from the discs (folder called pdm server) or by running the disc and choosing server products.
If you don't have the discs you can download it from the manual download links on the customer portal. (screegrab to follow)
Once you do have it installed on logging in through the client will ask for a server name which can be just the name of your PC.
Thank you very much, now I am one step beyond...in my understanding.......jeje
After comparing, clearly I just need WORKGROUP PDM, and not Enterprise PDM....
And the faniest is that I have SW Premium, so accordingly, I just need to activate the Add in.
I have done it, but then an error pops up, and next window (attached) appears.. Then I cannot select anything !!! What am I suppose to do in order to activate properly the Workgroup PDM ??? Is might be something outside SW iterface ???
Thank you very much in advance !!
Hello !!! thank you very much !!!
Finally I got the "Validation code", and I managed to install the add in Workgroup PDM.
Everything looks fine but the initial "sample project" is like shaddy, and I cannot yet create folders, projects, etc...
Have a look to the snapshot attached.
Which is the next step ??? Does it have something to do with activate some "viewer" or "client", ore something like that, even though the Vaultdata is located in my own computer??
Thanks Kenneth !
Perhaps is this the problem? Do I need also Workgroup PDM Viewer features???
In tha that case, where can I find a "PDM Viewer licence key " ???
The vault viewer is an extra cost software which allows up to 5 (?) concurrent users to view files in the vault.
Pedro, you should do the Workgroup PDM tutorials that are included with SolidWorks. This will take you through the set up procedure for creating your own vault, and explain how to organize and populate it.
