EPDM Attempts to Automatically Login on Windows Login – Search/Indexing Issue

It has been observed that after upgrading the SOLIDWORKS software in an environment that has its Toolbox in EPDM can cause the EPDM login window to display immediately after logging into Windows even if Automatic Login is enabled.

This issue is caused by the Toolbox location in EPDM to be added to the Search Path options in SOLIDWORKS which in turn, adds the path to the Windows Indexing Options since the SOLIDWORKS search capabilities are dependent on Windows Indexing.

If you exclusively set indexing locations in Windows do not modify the locations in the SOLIDWORKS Search Paths since this will effect your indexing paths.

Upgrading SOLIDWORKS can potentially reset these index paths so be sure to verify the paths after the upgrade.
