On the verge of upgrading from SW2013-SP5 to 2015-SP4.....

Question asked by Philip Lane on Aug 12, 2015
Latest reply on Aug 12, 2015 by TJ McDermott does anyone have any recommendations for a clean and painless file upgrade to our EPDM vault....please?

Having run a test upgrade and selecting 'create new version' and 'do a Rebuild...' etc, we were left with 'high-hundreds' of files requiring manual updates, and thousands of upgrade fails due to 'File not referenced by latest version of parent' error.

I had to intervene about 100 times to stop the application due to it hanging....annoying to see first thing in the morning, having wasted several overnights-worth upgrading time.

Why do so many files just fail to upgrade, leaving a manual upgrade necessary with no more information forthcoming?

This is my first Solidworks file upgrade. We do have VAR support, but you can't beat user experiences and solutions.

Thank you.
