My question is that we have a specific machine we run FEA's on that we needed to upgrade to SolidWorks 2014 SP 5 to fix a bug. We did so without upgrading the EPDM Service pack. Is this acceptable?
I have a couple of Machines with SW2014 SP5 and EPDM at SP2.0 and haven't experienced any issues.
Thanks Adrian, I've always been under the impression that different service packs are fine, just as long as it is all within the same major release.
According to our VAR, this is not acceptable and can corrupt vault data, which I don't understand why, especially if we do not save anything from this machine into our vault, we only access read only information to run tests.
Does anyone have any e-mail addresses for Solidworks Techs? I would like to ask someone from SolidWorks and get a second opinion instead of just my VAR'S. Part of me feels they are just playing it safe by saying it needs to be the same.
I even found this on the SolidWorks help site.
