Upgrading EPDM Tasks

March 9th, 2010

When you upgrade your SolidWorks Enterprise PDM, don’t forget your tasks do not upgrade automatically. If you want the latest and greatest tasks, you’ll need to unload and re-import the tasks from the new install disk.

    WOuld this apply for going from Sp1.0 to SP3.0? I am waiting for SP3.0 to be released.

    How do you unload and re-import?

  2. Jeff Sweeney says:

    Honestly, I haven’t seen the change log for SP3 yet.

    To reimport:
    1. Open administration tool on a upgraded client – log in as Admin.
    2. File > open > browse to c:\program files\solidworks enterprise pdm\default data\
    3. Load the proper .cex file.
    4. Drag-and-drop SWTaskAddIn to the add-ins node (not the convert task). Select Yes to update the existing add-in
    5. Verify via the task host configuration that the updated add-in is loaded.
    6. On clients that act as task host it is recommended to exit enterprise and log in again to the view to ensure the updated add-in is loaded.

    Cannot find the swtaskaddin?

    When you load the .cex file, it is inside of the import.
