I made some testing with EPDM 2015 and I try a rollback on a SW files and some variable values are blank after that.
Unfortunately I spend a little time on these tests.
Our Experience so far...
We are new to EPDM we just completed a new implementation of EPDM on the Second week of December 2014. We are running SW 2014 SP5 and EPM 2015 SP1.1. (We started our with EPDM 2014 at the begining of the implementation week and EPM 2015 SP1 came out before our trainer left on Friday, so he upgraded our EPDM Server to EPM 2015 SP1).
We have been up and running for a little over a month now and are very happy... we have not had any problems with SW Crashes/corrupt files. Our windows explorer has been crashing once in a while, but its not corrupting anything... the only problem it causes, is that it leaves temporary files beginning with the ~ symbol in the directory you were working in when it crashed, and you have to manually delete them. (but leaving them does not affect anything... just clutter and wasted space). Overall we are very pleased with the system and things are running much better than it did pre-EPDM.
As soon as SW 2015 SP2 comes out (supposedly within the week), we will be upgrading all the client stations from SW 2014 SP5... Hopefully this won't introduce any problems for us. (fingers crossed...lol)
You can delete the ~ files with the SolidWorks RX, it will delete the ~ files in all the subfolders if you want. It's on the system maintenance tab under "clean the temporary files"
If you are having issues with Explorer crashing it might be related to the context of Windows Explorer. I was having the same issue and after disabling one that was related to the nvidia control panel I haven't had an explorer crash since. This is the link where I found the info and tool to disable the bad context item.
Hi, i just wanted to close this thread.
This was most probably fixed in SP2.1 (SPR 862458 along with other SPR's).
Thanks for your thoughts guys!
