Dear Solid Edge Customer:


The latest Maintenance Pack (MP8) for Solid Edge ST6 is now available for download.



The Solid Edge Team




Release Notes:



--- Maintenance Pack Policy --


We release Maintenance Packs for CRITICAL items only. Maintenance Packs are available

up to a maximum of 15 months following the release date of the English version. The

release date for Solid Edge ST6 English was 7/19/13, making the Maintenance Pack

cutoff date 10/19/14.


--- 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

After downloading the Maintenance Pack to your machine, unbundle the zip file and then
