Dear Solid Edge Customer:
Solid Edge ST10 Maintenance Pack 8 is now available for download.
The Solid Edge Team
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.

Not sure where else to post this, but specifically since updating to MP8, the office has been having issues with Assemblies.
Specifically, when saving an assembly, the loading icon doesn't dissapear (ie doesnt save), and Solid Edge crashes.
Apologies if there's a bugs/glitches post somewhere, unaware of where that is if so.
We've had to uninstall the Maintenance Pack.
Good morning/afternoon everyone,
Please see the screenshot below. In MP8 I don't see any update for the Teamcenter Integration as in MP1. Is it safe to say that no Teamcenter update is required for MP8?
@TheodoreTurner I believe that since the SEEC client is now part of the Solid Edge install, it is patched with the Solid Edge MP. The download you are referring to appears to be for the SEEC Administrator tool only.
Thank you for the reply. Yes, I am referring to the SEEC Administrator tool. With some of the previous MP's there were new "feature_seec" XML files to update the "Teamcenter Integration for Solid Edge" template in the Teamcenter Environment Manager. I just want to make 100% sure MP8 doesn't also require a template update.
No, no template update required with MP8. We now only post SEEC Administrator maintenance packs when there is a need for a template update.
the link http://support.industrysoftware.automation.siemens.com/general/email.shtml is broken, is there a new one to receive email notifications about launch of Maintencance Packs?
