PTC Release Advisor is a new web-based tool available on the Support Portal , which consolidates compatibility documentation and upgrade recommendations across PTC products.
This new tool can help you plan an upgrade of a PTC product, while considering other PTC products you use, and key variables in your environment such as Database , browser and Operating Systems.
For a brief demo of the tool, check out this short video: Release Advisor Demo - YouTube
When I click the link you provided the page loads in Chinese. Any idea why? I'm not seeing any way to change it and I definitely don't have my browser configured to display anything else this way.
I tried two other browsers and those displayed correctly in English, so I guessed it was probably cookie related. Sure enough, after deleting all cookies in Firefox for "support.ptc.com", the page began loading correctly. I think I'm going to disable all cookies for all PTC related sites. That should prevent anything like this from happening in the future. 🙂 Thanks!
Again not sure what is happening but I just tried and as expected it is available.
This tool is now part of our Release process and need to be updated before a release is shipped :
If it does not appear as part of the selection if it because the version of WC you have selected is not compatible with Creo 8.0 .. The system will list only compatible version based on your initial selection.
For example I select WC 11.2.1 and Creo 8 is available :
If you want to see the compatibility matrix for the WC version you have selected, select the hyperlink under release matrix
for example after selecting WC 12.0.1 , Creo 8 is not available as additional product version selection and if it is confirmed when I look at the WC 12.0.1 matrix (WC 12.0.2 to be released in June will be compatible).
Interesting. It seems odd that the latest version of Creo Parametric (220.127.116.11) is not listed as compatible with the latest version of Windchill (18.104.22.168). We're running them together, so I know they work. I wonder why the support matrix doesn't show that...
It is a question of timing of these releases. If it is not in the matrix , it means the compatibility has not been certified by QA but it can still work .. may be will not work for some of the new functionality of Creo 8
We are on 11.0 M030 and Creo 4 M140.
We are doing our testing for 12.0 with go-live in July.
I have seen documentation that states our version and build of Creo is compatible with 12. Yet I can't add Creo 4 to the list.
I even added Creo first. It wouldn't let me add Windchill.
You cannot add it because you have already a primary product (WC 11.0.3 ) according to your snapshot. Select next and add secondary product Creo 4.014 (Creo 4 M140)
