SE Viewer ST9 with Full ST9 on same PC

Hi Edgers,

I found a possible regression against previous releases.

Do you have SEViewer available on the same machine with full ST9? I do not and I am unable to install them together.It shows "classic" information about existing installation of SE or Viewer.

I tried silent installation but with no success. First I tried install ST9 and then Viewer silently. Then I tried istall Viewer and then ST9 silently.

 

Reason why I ask is that customers use SE Viewer for viewing files when all floating licenses are reserved for someone else.

 

Edit: Just got information from GTAC that this is now PR with priority 1.

Good question my friend! I can confirm you that ST9 viewer is missing from basic installation... Smiley Sad

I believe this was mentioned in the ST9 release notes that Viewer is no longer installed with Solid Edge.  I'm curious though... Will View & Markup take a license of SE, and if not, can it be used instead?


Thanks,

I just verified and it appears that V & M does not consume a licenses, so it can be used in place of Viewer.

Hi Ken,
I just tested licensing with V&M, but on my site V&M require license.
My scenarion is one floating ST9 license, two machines. If ST9 consumes license on first machine, V&M can not run, because of no available floating licence. If V&M is launched on first machine, full SE shows info that licensed number of users was reached.

I looked into delivered ST9 Readme.htm file and I was unable to find any mention of removing SEViewer from full product.

I can confirm that the Viewer was deliberately removed from the ST9 Solid Edge install.

 

Also, in my testing with ST9 View & Markup required a Solid Edge license.

 

@ota_poul2 I worked your PR and I have this issue escalated internally.  As soon as I have an update I will let you know.

I guess I'm not understanding the problem. Viewer is still available by installing it separately isn't it? The download we have has it in its own folder. Or does it conflict with the full SE install?

Viewer will not install if Solid Edge is installed -- has always been this way

That's weird.  I tested it by renaming my node locked license file,then I verified SE wouldn't start and then started V & M  and was able to open files to view without the license...

 

I'm not sure where I read that the Viewer was no longer installed with SE, I couldn't find mention of it in the Release Notes or the README file... May have been in some BETA info.


Thanks,
Ken
