We are looking to do a partial roll-out of SW2019 to our internal admin team and individual users who require it for client files. This would be a temporary situation to give our admins enough time to update our templates, toolboxes, and settings and do initial troubleshooting before we do a full roll-out a couple months later. If we upgraded our PDM professional servers at the same time as our license servers, would all of the users still on the 2017 PDM client continue to work?

Whenever I even briefly hover my mouse cursor over a body part on the list, SW will cycle through all of the lines in that sketch and highlight them orange. I have turned off the dynamic highlighting and indeed the sketches are not highlighted but it still highlights the bodies which is taking a long time. Is there some way of turning this option off? Many thanks

I have been trolling the forums and there appears to be a lot of confusion on how to install SolidWorks with SCCM 2012. SolidWorks has not provided much documentation on how to do this and I struggled through it for a while so I thought I would share some of my notes. My notes are based on SolidWorks 2014 x64 SP04, Windows 7 x64 and SCCM 2012 SP1.

Under user/group (either works) settings in the PDM administration tool. De-select *Always work with latest version of files* - i strongly advice not to go with this option though.

I am curious why, when you remove Solidworks from app and features, it still leaves a bunch of orphaned crap laying around on the computer (even when I select every check box to remove everything). Then, you go online and there are solidworks clean uninstall scripts. The official answer on the Solidworks forum is "Google clean uninstall scripts and use those." First off, this is a pretty lazy and sad answer.

I got my 1-year licence key for Solidworks yesterday. I downloaded and installed SW 2018 SP03, when i tried to open it, splash screen came and says "Loading registry, Verifying Licence" and disappeared. I deleted it and downloaded SP05 and it says same thing. My system is not the best but i was able to use SW 2017 one year ago.

Our assemblies top out around 5,000 parts, most are much smaller. I do occasional FEA, but it's not every day, or even every month. It's quite affordable, but it kind of looks like minimum requirements to me.

Does anyone have a report generator query for searching folder history comments? I want to be able to search for all folders that have been moved (history comments will have the term "moved" in them).

DEFINITELY don't want any cloud B.S. on my computer, I could get in pretty deep trouble if any of my models end up on someone else's servers... It's part of a Dassault product/platform called 3DVia. 3DVia has tools like HomeByMe which is part of the 3DbyMe experience.

It should do fine. The SolidWorks recommended processor speed is 3.3GHz, but those are kind of hard to find in Dell and HP machines that get purchased by under contracts. The people making the deals usually want to save money anywhere they can.

We are updating from SW2015 to SW2019 but only testing on two seats with static (non-floating) licenses. Unfortunately our VAR (eventually and with much reluctance) supplied us with the SW PDM Standard serial numbers for all our seats of SW with no cross reference to our SW CAD license serial numbers..

Where is the database located in relation to the client machine that has the issue? Is it on the same server, in the building, different building onsite or over the WAN to a different site? The connection lost would most likely have to do with the network.

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'm not an end-user of PDM, I do the network admin for the company. They've asked me to setup the Web Server for PDM. I don't see any sites or virtual directories in IIS. I'd appreciate some step by step instructions for setting up the Web Server for PDM.
