A minor tip for those of you using Femap with ST7. If you want to launch Femap from within Solid Edge ST7 (thereby creating or updating parts/assemblies in your Femap FEA model), you need to make an update to the plmxmlAdapterSE70.dll file which is in the Femap installation directory. The updated file is available from the Product Update area of GTAC -> Solid Edge -> ST7.
As of 3 Sep 2014, the ST7 certification spreadsheet, advised that the updated adapter .dll should be put in the <Femap install>\util directory, whilst our test indicated it should replace the file of the same name in the Femap install directory. Our test relates to Femap V11.1.2, which would not launch from ST7 (with geometry created/updated) until the adapter .dll was replaced.
