Workgroup Manager does not auto register 3rd party applications

Workgroup Manager does not auto register 3rd party applications

It would be really nice if the WWGM would register 3rd party applications automatically, or if PTC could provide us with the information on how to do it via command line.  They have the whole thing set up so that updates to service patches can be done seamlessly, but WWGM doesn't register the applications. 

Having to go around to every client machine after a service patch update that comes out every month seems a bit much, and effectively makes the service patches unusable.

Hello Ryan, for which Authoring Application do you need the "automatic" registration?

Best Regards,

Benjamin

Hi Benjamin,

I need it for Solidworks 2014, AutoCAD 2014, and Creo Illustrate 3.0.

Thanks,

Ryan

I agree your idea!

I have 100 users and for every upgrade I have to re-register all my applications. For new users I have to register all servers. It is very annoying!

(Creo Elements / Direct Drafting, Creo Elements / Direct Modeling, Creo Illustrate)

I would also like to be able to register more than one version of an application at a time. Users often use different version of SolidWorks for different projects, and right now you can only have one version of the application registered.

We have a need to run different versions of SolidWorks.  I agree that we need a way to switch via a script, so that the users can simply run a desktop shortcut to get the correct connection.  I understand that having only one registered is appropriate, I just want to programmatically switch which is registered.

I'd like to be able to do this for Creo Schematics.

We also face the issue to register CAD applications manually (Siemens NX and Inventor).
We are using WGM 11.2.1.0 currently.
The status was changed to acknowledged more than 3 years ago, is there something happening regarding an automatic registration?
