Dear Solid Edge Customer:
The latest Maintenance Pack (MP13) for Solid Edge ST6 is now available for download.
The Solid Edge Team
--- Office 97-2003 File Types ---
Customers have reported problems with SEEC interacting with Office 97-2003 file types.
Example: It not possible to open an excel spreadsheet from the Solid Edge variable table.
File open is failing because Microsoft Office 2010 added security checks relating to
opening Office 97-2003 files. Therefore, in order to open Office 97-2003 file types
in this manner the SEEC Cache folder location must be added to the Microsoft Office
application’s Trusted Locations.
Example: Add the SEEC Cache location to:
File->Options->Trust Center->Trusted center settings->Trusted locations
ST6 Maintenance Packs can be downloaded from:
After downloading the Maintenance Pack to your machine, unbundle the zip file and then
dbl click on exe to install the Maintenance Pack.
