It's been said if you give a person a fish you feed them for a day, teach them to fish and you feed them for a lifetime. In this article we'll show you a couple of good fishing holes for EPDM Administration.
Last year we started by having you download the Enterprise PDM Product from the Customer Portal. Click "Here" for last years blog.
This year some things have changed;
First, Enterprise PDM has been given a new name. SOLIDWORKS PDM Professional. A new product SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard has been created as replacement/alternative to the WorkgroupPDM product.
Second, the SOLIDWORKS download now includes BOTH of these products and the previous individual download for EPDM is no longer listed.
Are the Guides available in the SOLIDWORKS download?
No, not exactly. That's why this blog is being updated. The Guides folder will exist, but not until after installation. The new location is: C:\Program Files\SOLIDWORKS Corp\SOLIDWORKS PDM\Lang\GB.
So, how do you get the guides before installation?
Easy, same SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal, just a different link under References, "Admin Guides". Actually this link has been here for several years.
You'll likely need to scroll down a bit to find the PDM Install Guide.
Enjoy and Good Fishing!
