If you already have Inventor licences, I don't think you need new ones. When you install WGM for Inventor, it sees Inventor and you simply select it and it will create the links to the program.  You do this during the installation process.

It's really easy, see the screen shot.

Greetings,

There are a couple things to consider.  You may have to buy a license of Inventor for your CADworker on Windchill, also you will need to have it set up correctly to publish your models/drawings as you wish.

@fivigg  Gave a good link for information as well.  I've found downloading the Workgroup Manager and installing it to be mostly trouble free.  You do  have to be careful of Windows 10 updates and Windows OneDrive can cause the PTC file system to have trouble and you are unable to access the objects in local workspaces.  However the newer CPS of Workgroup Manager seems to help a lot.

Thank you for reply.

Still I am not 100% clear.

I got your point that we need to purchase a Windchill Workgroup Manager (WGM) license for Integration with AutoDesk Inventor from PTC. This my understanding is correct?

Now does we need do something with or ask to AutoDesk inventor License? I mean we are already having AutoDesk Inventor License and also Windchill with WGM for Creo 3.0. In this case I think I only need to buy WGM license for AutoDesk Inventor. Correct?

Thank you again in advance.
