Hi Guys,


After installing WPDM 2013 server, I cannot start workgroup pdm service. Please see below for the error message.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall WPDM 2013 but problem still exist.


Below is the event log:

The description for Event ID 2 from source SolidWorks Workgroup PDM cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.


If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.


The following information was included with the event:


Vault data is newer than service. Data corruption is possible. Exiting.


Event Xml:

<Event xmlns="">


<Provider Name="SolidWorks Workgroup PDM" />
<EventID Qualifiers="49152">2</EventID>
<TimeCreated SystemTime="2014-05-28T07:24:20.000000000Z" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />



<Data>Vault data is newer than service. Data corruption is possible. Exiting.</Data>




When I install WPDM 2014 server, I have no problem.


Any idea what is the problem?
