Supporting multiple instances of CATIA in WGM

Supporting multiple instances of CATIA in WGM

Automotive OEMs specify exactly which CATIA-Version we have to use.
These CATIA-Versions differ from OEM to OEM. (e.g. R24-SP03-HF88 vs. R26-SP03-HF42 vs. R26-SP05-HF24)
From Windchil 10.2 M030 the WGM checks for exact version match of CATIA integration (down to hotfix-level).
Windchill also supports only one instance of CATIA on one client.
Taking the "supportet way" would lead us to to different clients for each of our customer!
As mentioned in #CS131209 we want to place this highly recommended feature-wish as an "idea"

I had a simular problem with NX. Due to this limitation (autoregistration, which im most cases is good) it was not possible to use a second / manually defined startup command to create a paralell installed TEST-CAD-Worker on the same maschine as the PROD-CAD-Worker.

I would also prefer to optionally continue to use the old feature of manually register individual startup commands.

We are also affected by this problem. We have currently 13 different CATIA and 2 NX environments in use. These are currently installed on the CAD workstation because the designer has to jump between the environments several times a day. An import or export is currently not possible. Therefore we support this idea 100%.
