Free2D and Sharepoint

Hello,
I understand the Free2D application is not directly supported by Insight, but should the Free2D application be able to open a draft file that is accessible via a sharepoint network connection? I am testing the application and can see the .dft files, but it will not actually open them. No errors either, just basically sits there. Just making sure it's not an application limitation or simply a problem on my end.

If it should work, should I expect the included viewer application will work as well?

Thanks,
Tim

Tim,
2D Drafting is not enabled for sharepoint.
If you are a Solid Edge customer, I suggest you use the maintenance version
of 2D Drafting.
It is enabled for Insight.

Thanks for the info Rick.

One more question. With the maintenance version of 2D drafting, does it come with a different viewer that is also Sharepoint/Insight enabled?

Tim,
The main difference between 2D Drafting and 2D DraftingM is that with 2D
DraftingM you install Solid Edge, not the download from the web.
You drop in a 2D DraftingM license. View and Markup comes with the Solid
Edge installation and should work.
