Like many I use SolidWorks on a desktop (most of the time) and a laptop (occasionally). For as long as I can recall, SolidWorks has let users install the application on the desktop and laptop and activate it on desktop and laptop. At any one time a user could have 2 activations running. This was convenient and (from my perspective) a USP for SolidWorks.

In 2 weeks time we are upgrading to PDM 2017, but keeping SW2016 SP5. I'm not taking the company up to SW2017 until this 'load time' problem is completely solved.

Can i batch parts at a folder level or do i need to be inside a folder to be able to do that? I am copying filenames to vendor part numbers and also updating vendor part numbers. Can this be done at a top level folder structure or can this only be performed once inside the folder where the parts reside?

The new Microsoft Surface Book looks great and I am considering it as a more portable replacement for my Dell M4600 (8GB RAM, Core i5, NVIDIA Quadro 2000M). Quoting from the Surface Book website we have: With my work, assemblies can have 1000s of parts, but I get good performance from my current Dell setup.

I am trying to install the latest service pack in SW 2017. In the summary tab of the installation my "Install Now" button is greyed out and when I mouse over the button then a message pops up "Select your Tool Box installation method". Ok. So I can not do anything in the Toolbox/Hole Wizard Options because the "Change" Button is Grayed out Too.

We just updated our material database and made some adjustments there. For example: one major point was to change the appearance for a very common material to a better visible one.

I goofed. We are on PDM 2016. It appears I've left (2) files checked out on a PC where (I believe) it was from an old vault view (2015). I've tried logging into that PC and "Undo Check Out" and "Check In" but no success.

I have some customers that have moved to 2017, and others still on 2016. Is there an easy way to have both 2016 & 2017 Solidworks on same PC using PDM PRo 2017 as well? I guess I would need to setup the 2016 SW to use a local toolbox install and the 2017 use the PDM toolbox database.

We are currently on SW2017 SP01 and Professional PDM. Currently we have our main server with the sql database. One of our other companies that is not in the same state as us is having a major latency problem. We plan on splitting the server for Professional PDM, but keeping the licenses for Solidworks as is.
