Windows 10 support for the Windchill 10.2 Workgroup Manager

Windows 10 support for the Windchill 10.2 Workgroup Manager

We have some users who use Windows 10, and need support for the Windchill Workgroup Manager (WGM) for Windchill 10.2 M030.  The WGM does work in Windows 10, which is known because the WGM was installed in Windows 7, prior to the upgrade to Windows 10.  However, we upgrade Windchill 10.2 to CPS14, and now we can't install the CPS14 WGM.

Windows 10 is out there, so there is no good reason that the WGM is not supported in Windows 10.

Hi Mark,

PTC has plans to certify Windows 10 OS as WGM client platform for following CAD Applications in 10.2 M030 CPS17 (RTM: 29-June-2016).

NX 10.0.3 
SolidWorks 2016
Autodesk Inventor 2016
AutoCAD2016 SP1
Creo illustrate 3.1_M010
IsoDraw7.3M060
Creo Elements/Direct 19.0 M040 (Drafting and Modeling) [Note 19.0 M040 will be new CED MOR support on 10.2 M030 since 19.0 M010 is only supported at present]

 

Please let me know, if you require any further clarifications.

Note: PTC certification for WGM on Windows 10 is also dependent on the respective CAD vendors providing support for CAD Tools on Windows 10.

Regards,

Pankaj Mooteri

As Pankaj shared, CPS14 is not officially supported on Windows 10 for WWGM client.

As an interim workaround to the installer being blocked from the Windchill Software Downloads page:

1. Access that same page from a supported platform (e.g., Windows 7)

2. Create a "Redistributable WWGM installer"

3. Run this installer on Windows 10 client

Tom,

Thanks for the method.  I will give it a try.
