We are having problems getting the Workgroup manager to work with SoldiWorks 2013 in our Windchill PDMLink 10.1.
We download the WorkGroup manager from out 10.1 Windchill environment.
Our users are on Java 7 Update 51
They are using IE 9
But when they open Soldiworks the command lines that should show under Tools for:
The last option on the Tools list is Options...
Any clue what could be wrong?
Open up the WGM.
Select the Tools>Application Management>Applications
Register the Solidworks 2013 application.
Close the window
Now under application management you should see it is registered. (There is a verification button to check this)
Open SW 2013.
You should now see in the Tools:
Additionally on the File menu you should see:
Open from Windchill
Once you have opened a SW file from windchill you will also see in the file menu
Revise and Check Out
Undo Checkout etc
Hope this helps.
Have you contacted PTC Technical Support? This seems like an issueTech Support should be able address fairly quickly. We have numerous customers using 10.1 with SolidWorks 2013.
It seems to be hit and miss with getting the WGM to donwload from the Windchill 10 site.
For my last user I had to use Chrome to do the download as IE 9 would not work.
So, must have got the WGM now.
Anyone know how to make Windchill the home page within the WGM as the PTC page is not helpful.
Each time the users would need to open the WGM, then reconnect to the WC 10 Server then open SoldiWorks 2013.
If they open SW2013 first they get a warning each time saying the Server is not supported!
They hit OK and then Tools/Workgroup Manager and then within WGM they open the server or Tools/Server Manager.
Seems like extra steps.
