This is driving myself and IT crazy.
We use a network install and were cooking along pretty good with M040. This weekend, I updated us to M050. Starting yesterday, about 1/2 the users started having issues where the software would not start. Many times, we got the attached messages. If it did start, it took like 5 minutes to come up. If it got that far, many times it would crash and go away. IT says they did not do anything over the weekend so I figure there is something wrong with the M050 version. I change us back to M040 and now it behaves the same. It seems like it is now affecting more and more users to. Anyone seen this or know how to fix it?
This one should go to customer support. It sounds like a license server issue. Regardless, to avoid serious loss of productivity, a hot support case should get this resolved. You can probably reproduce the issue without too much trouble.
my suggestion is ... do not update Creo 2.0 installation. Always install new maintenance release into separate directory (eg. C:\PTC\Creo2_M040, C:\PTC\Creo2_M050, and so on).
I hope that if you uninstall Creo and make clean M040 installation, then your problem will disappear.
I forgot to mention that I always install the new software to a different folder so that I can roll back to an old version almost immediately if I have to.
Still working the problem.
