We had recently adopted Solidworks PDM for data management. Since we are in learning phase we don't have much experience. I have granted all the permission to all users through "Administration" app, and still they could figure out only empty folders in 'PDMvault'.

This is my first post on the users forum, I've posted questions on the SolidWorks subreddit previously but wanted to include the information here to help build a solid foundation of users and best practices. My company is fairly new to SWx, I'm one of just a few users and I've taken it upon myself to do all the admin work to make the program work best for us and meet all of our needs. One of the things I did recently seems to have had a significant negative impact on my performance, people who

Rename Solidworks Corp folder I followed some good advice when I installed Solidworks 2019, and within the installer I renamed Solidworks Corp to Solidworks Corp 2019, and Solidworks Data to Solidworks Data 2019. I did not do this earlier for Solidworks 2018 when I installed it, although I was able to change Solidworks Data to Solidworks Data 2018 after the fact - I just had to tell Solidworks where the toolbox was in options after starting up.

I am trying to get to the downloads section of the customer portal but I seem to get stuck in a log in loop that ends with a screen that just has a box on it that says "Message: Success" with a "Next" button, but clicking the button doesn't do anything. I've tried using different browsers from different networks. I've even tried from a Mac (using two different browsers there) and I get the same page every time.

Solidworks Activation failing I have been using Solidworks 2017 without any issues. When I travel for my normal 8-5, I take my personal laptop with me in case any consulting work pops up.

I just started testing SWX2019 SP0 and realized that within AdminInstallOptionsEditor the Settings Administrator Button is greyed out, and I find no way to get it active. I tried deleting the CurrentUser Node of Solidworks, and even without an installed Solidworks the editor of the 2017 Version is runnig great with active Button, but Version of 2019 seems to be "dead".

Once a computer has been added using Task Host Configuration, how can you remove it? In particular, IT has pulled several computers out of service that were used for task execution. Now when setting up tasks the old computers still show up on the execution method screen. I want to reduce the clutter on the list be removing the computers no longer in service.

Jarrad Edwards- You should be able to restore your folder to a previous version using File Explorer, no other way.... John is 100% correct on this. I was in a similar situation with an even more compelling case, and SW would not restore my files to the previous version.

ONLINE LICENSE FIASCO Online licensing is a super huge FIASCO or PITA. When you get constantly kicked off saying that there is no longer a license available to save your work because we're shutting down to the latest message that Solidworks is not enabled for my ID & won't start is really starting the blood to boil.

I recently got a Dell Precision 5530 for work with the NVIDIA Quadro P2000 graphics card and it is certified on SW here:http://www.solidworks.com/pages/services/VideoCardTesting.html I downloaded the driver from the SW website because my driver didn't match. Now it matches but Solidworks Rx still doesn't recognize the system manufacturer or system model.

I have recently been given the responsibility of managing changes on a machine and it's accompanying files (Parts, Drawings, and Assemblies). I was initially very nonplussed to get this project because it is a notoriously complicated and poor revision control has been maintained on the machine. I mean, I heard people complaning about managing the machine years before I even joined the department. The machine is approximately 10 years old, has approximately 5,000 total parts on it, there are 5

J'applique un usinage sur mes tubes grace à une fonction de composant intelligent issues d'une repetition (exemple: si je soude un téton sur un tube, je fais un trou de Ø2 dans montube pour reperer l'emplkacement du téton.) Lorsque je crée une copie de mon assemblage et remplace mon tube par une copie en faisant enregistrer sous et souhaite réappliquer la fonction intelligente sur mon nouveau tube, alors je dois supprimer et recréer ma répétition pour insérer de nouveau ma fonction de composant

This folder has disappeared from my task pane and I have no idea where the native folder resides in Windows. I have no access to any material appearances. I'm incredibly f*cked off as this has created a deeply embarrassing and costly incident with a client and, being a Saturday I have no access to SW support; not that it makes much difference as they never answer their telephones.
