Solid Edge ST10 - Maintenance Pack 4 Announcement

Dear Solid Edge Customer:


Solid Edge ST10 Maintenance Pack 4 is now available for download.



The Solid Edge Team



Release Notes:



Solid Edge ST10 Maintenance Packs are delivered using Microsoft Installer (MSI) technology.


Microsoft Windows 10 releases Feature Updates every six months. Microsoft does not use Windows 10 Feature Updates as an avenue to deliver security-related patches. All quality-related patches, including security and reliability hot-fixes, will continue to be delivered outside of this Feature Update process. Therefore, if your production use of Solid Edge was negatively impacted as a result of the last Microsoft Windows 10 Feature Update, you should consider configuring your Windows 10 machines to delay the deployment of Windows 10 Feature Updates. Configuring your Windows 10 machines by moving the machines into the "Semi-Annual Channel" servicing channel will delay the installation of Feature Updates for approximately four months following the initial release. During this time, you and your IT organization will have the opportunity to review the suitably of the Feature Update, including determining any negative impact, upon the applications that you use in your production environment, such as Solid Edge. This four-month window of time between Microsoft initially releasing the Feature Update to targeted machines and releasing the Feature Update for general deployment to the enterprise will also provide our development team time to review and react to changes introduced by Windows 10 Feature Updates, thereby helping keep you as productive as possible.

Re: Solid Edge ST10 - Maintenance Pack 4 Announcement


Thanks for the maintence pack and the recompute fix!


But there is a bug in the maintence pack all filled options are empty in balloons and dimensions. Can this be fixed asap with a new build before I deploy this within my company? All old placed  balloons and dimensions are infected to by the way.

I'm also affected by this bug..Filled arrow and balloon dot bugFilled arrow and balloon dot bug

Assume that this will be corrected in MP5  and that the filled arrows and dot at the end of an balloon are back... and not gone forever.


Please confirm,

Re: Solid Edge ST10 - Maintenance Pack 4 Announcement


There are not gone, if I order our server to make PDF they are still filled but that one runs MP3.

This MP fixes some important bugs which costs time, to break something else I do hope they will not let us wait 6 weeks minimum.
