In the past we have experienced some conflicts with different versions of ProductView or Windchill Desktop Integration between our production server and test server at different built.
I am expecting that this will be the case here again. Our production server is 9.1 M050 and we are planning to upgrade to 10.1
The implementation team will need working on both servers (the current production server and a test server on 10.1)
I am currently wondering if the implementation should have a additional laptop or workstation to be used only with 10.1 or have on their current computer a virtual environment installed to be used with 10.1 only.
Fortunately we are not upgrade ProE to Creo at the same time so we do not have to deal with that as well. However, there are enough potential issue with PDMLink, I mentioned ProductView and WDI but there is also the possibility to use newer version of Java, Internet Explorer etc.... which do not cohabit well together on the same windows session.
How do you handle such situation ? Addition computer ? virtual environment ? something else ?
