    EPDM and multiple versions of Solidworks

    Tom Parent

      We're presently considering moving to EPDM from WPDM.  Being a consultancy, we must conform to our client's Solidworks version.  For WPDM, we run multiple vaults to handle the multiple Solidworks running.  Our VAR tells us a single EPDM vault can handle the multiple versions.  I'm trying to better understand the implications of this.  Is there a flag in EPDM that tells you the SW release version of the file?  Does anyone have experience with this and any precautionary thoughts?  Thanks!

          As long as you are running a later version of EPDM, it will work with your files. I don't think there's any way to indicate which version the file is.

            Hi Tom,

             

             

            As the EPDM manage SolidWorks files regardless of their versions and old projects are not always updated on a possible exchange of EPDM version, we can not create a note and not have a field on the card you to return it. I have two tips.

             

             

            It is possible to create an API that returns the version of the SW file and insert it into dispatch and run on all Vault files.

             

             

            Create a field in your template standard SolidWorks with the SolidWorks version and each SW version change update this field.

             

             

            I hope it helped.
