Due to a custome of ours not being able to upgrade to 2013 (XP), I am at least wanting to upgrade EPDM to 2013. Will there be any performance or othe rissues with using EPDM 2013 and SW2012?
Hi Mike, there should not be any performance issues with this setup. The vault is designed to work with previous versions of SolidWorks, not future versions so you would not be able to have SolidWorks 2013 with EPDM 2012 but the other way is fine.
Mike, my understanding is that EPDM 2013 will not support XP just as SW 2013 won't.
Since you would need to upgrade every single client machine to EPDM 2013, I'm guessing you can't upgrade EPDM or SW either one until you address your 'custom' of using Windows XP.
EPDM 2013 will not install on XP machines. We have the same issue here. We are stuck on 2012 until we can get all client machines updated to Win 7. Here is the link to the system requirements. http://www.solidworks.com/sw/support/PDMSystemRequirements.html
Same issue for us...looks like there are more people on XP than you think. We still have 200 PCs to replace before we can upgrade ePDM to 2013.
I should clarify, we are doing a project with an outside customer who is currently stuck on XP and 2012. We are all on Win7-64 and 2012. We were planning on a 2013 upgrade but we cannot upgrade SW to 2013 since this one customer who we have to share files with is stuck on XP.
