Disable PDMLink 10.1 from carrying forward old iteration's image

I'm looking for a way to stop Windchill PDMLink from carrying forward the Creo View images from previous iterations.

 

Currently, if a publish job fails the system will pull forward the image from the previous iteration. As you can imagine, this causes a problem when people try to review the drawings from Creo View and get a half-completed mess, yet when the file is opened in Creo Parametric everything is completed properly.

 

Any ideas?

Hey Don,

I've got this in my site.xconf file and I do not get the old iteration image.

<Property name="publish.copyrepresentationsforward" overridable="true"

targetFile="codebase/wvs.properties"

value="false"/>

I think this is it as I have had this since 10.0 and am now on 10.2, but someone else set that up for me back then and I have just carried it forward each version.

Thanks Brian. I'll give it a test and see how it goes.
