Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

I got the freemium edition for the purpose of working with the sigma tile.

I can't get the composer to run, the message says I am not authorized.

Any remedy for this?

Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

Greetings James,

In the Express/Freemium Manufacturing apps version access to ThingWorx Core is not included. Due to this ThingWorx Composer is not accessible.

You need to install Developer Edition for accessing ThingWorx Composer.

Please refer Understanding Your Express or Developer Edition License section in ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps Setup and Configuration Guide for Freemium for understanding License details.

Regards,

Himanshu

Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

I installed the Developer edition for ThingWorx server back in the spring and used up my 30 days then.

Is there a separate developer download for the Manufacturing Apps with a new 30 day clock? If so, where do I get it.

Also, I now have a paid academic license for ThingWorx and have a license.bin for that. But I don't expect I have an entitlement for the Manufacturing Apps piece. Is there a contact person I can reach out to?

Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

Replying to myself. I did find the developer kit download and I guess that the 30 day clock begins anew when I install this. I will have to uninstall the freemium edition first. Hoping that's not too difficult.

Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

You should uninstall using uninstaller and install developer-kit. Let us know if you hit any snag.

Thanks.

Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

I did hit a snag -- installation fails.

I did un-install the freemium version first and then re-booted Server 2012 R2

Installation starts OK and then an alert pops up with the message:

ThingWorx Server is not running. Restart the ThingWorx Server

Re: ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps 8.1 Freemium is Available for Download!

Hi James.

You will need to uninstall all previous versions of the freemium edition, as well as any separate ThingWorx installs for Tomcat, or PostgreSQL.  Please user the uninstaller for removing the freemium version.  You can remove Tomcat and PostgreSQL by selecting Programs and Features in the Windows Control Panel.

Be sure to review the Prerequisities on the Developer edition download page to ensure your machine is configured adequately:  https://www.ptc.com/en/thingworx/manufacturing-apps/Dashboard/Download-Developer-Kit

Please let us know if you still experience issues once you have attempted another install--ensuring that all previous remnants of the ThingWorx product are removed first.

Regards.
