With the exit of Workgroup PDM I need to convert to a windows file system "PDM". Are there any utilities to help with this?

Hi everyone. I am fairly new to SolidWorks, but have used Creo since the 1990's. Our company has recently decided to favor SolidWorks, but we have Windchill as our PDM system. Saving drawings and models to Windchill with the Workgroup Manager seems fairly straightforward, however we need to save our company drawing formats to Windchill as well.

We are a student engineering group that has used PDM workgroup for several years and for the most part it has worked very well. The PDM is on a server that we maintain and during the update to SW 2017 we ran into trouble. In the solidworks installer we selected the upgrade option as we have PDM 2016 SP2.0 installed already. It then gave Error_1.

We are currently using Workgroup PDM at our company. Our workflow includes the use of the Workgroup API, which integrates our inventory system and manufacturing activities with design data from our vault. Some of the functionality we have created using Workgroup API includes:

This may not be the correct space to post this issue, but I'm not sure where else to ask it. My company has both Solidworks (2009, 2010, 2011) and Pro/Engineer (Wildfire 2, 3, & 4) . We use Windchill as our PDM system for Pro/E, and have recently started using the Solidworks Workgroup Manager for Windchill to manage our Solidworks databases.

I'd like to access our WPDM 2013 vault data with SW2017. I heard a way to do it is to backup the data from the WPDM 2013 vault, create a new WPDM 2017 vault, and restore the backed up data into the new vault. Just double-checking to see if this is something that is worth doing. My main concern is reference pathing, and as an added benefit it would be nice to preserve the versioning history.

Just upgraded our SolidWorks to 2017 and tried to connect to our existing WPDM vault and it just says no upgrade to WPDM is available and doesn't look like it's connecting. Am I missing something? Tags: none (add) vault login

Tried and searched various ways, and this might be simple, is there a way to search for or (even better) generate a report of Archived documents? Our Vault is in a bit of a state so Archived documents aren't only just in the Archived folder.

SOLIDWORKS 2018 and later will not support SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM. Will you be migrating to EPDM? Are there any other good options?

Is there a way to export the list of uses or grab them from the server's vault folders? You can get the list of users from the PDM Vault Admin application.

I am trying to update PDM client but not successful after clicking the Update button. I tried using the manual method to upgrade the SolidWorks explorer to 2014 SP5 by running the setup.exe under the swexplorer sub folder. After doing the upgrade the Build number is 0077 and I am still not able to login to the vault.

When I check out documents from Workgroup PDM, sometimes the custom property 'type' field is cleared for all properties. This subsequently blanks out the 'values' and I need to manually enter them back in. The document properties appear okay in the vault, unless I forget to enter them back in (in which case only the PDM defaults of revision, author, project, etc. get populated). My colleagues don't have this issue when working with the same documents, and it seems to happen more often with

To the best of my knowledge, Workgroup PDM doesn't have a method to search by Date Modified. (I.e. I want to know what files were checked-in between these two dates.) I needed to do this during my upgrade to PDM Standard recently and found the method below to be a reasonable hack. It's not perfect, but it produced the results that I needed. I'd love to hear about improvements or alternatives, as it looks like I might be keeping Workgroup PDM around for a little longer than I had anticipated.

It's a shame that workgroup is going away because we use it for such limited but necessary functions. All we basically need it for is to work collaboratively without stepping on each others toes. The taking ownership and releasing parts and checking in and out functionality is all we really need. We don't use it much for rev control or workflow checks.

I have been pulling my hair out on this issue for some time now. Here is the story. I have just recently upgraded some of my machines to Solidwors 2017 sp2. With that the engineers use Solidworks Explorer to access workgroup PDM.

I am getting an error while running a MS Excel based Workgroup PDM VBA macro, which is to get the list of files stored in Workgroup PDM. This was working till last week, until we switched from SolidWorks 2015 to SolidWorks 2016. The API at which is failing is while creating a connection object, Set connection = CreateObject("PDMWorks.PDMWConnection").
