Dear Solid Edge Customer:


Solid Edge ST7 Maintenance Pack 1 for Solid Edge is available for download.

Release Notes:



Maintenance Packs are released for CRITICAL items only. Maintenance Packs are available up to a maximum

Re: Solid Edge ST7 - Maintenance Pack 1 Announcement


1. Please, document officially how to deploy ST7 MP1 silently. Setup.exe /s does not seem to work now? It is important generally for the updates to be automated /and controlled/. 

2. Are you planning to develop or use some better update technology? MSP files, auto update within the program (like Autodesk), etc.?


I hope that as SolidEdge is being improved in some areas like Synchronous Technology, other areas like updating, options deployment (without need of user interaction) for multiple users will be improved as well.

I believe you try to install the share point maintenance pack instead of the Solid Edge maintenance pack.

Re: Solid Edge ST7 - Maintenance Pack 1 Announcement


The file is in the screenshot.

Why oh why is this prehistoric update system still in use...


Even free software has a "check for update" button which starts the correct update process after one click.

The Solid Edge ST7 maintenance pack file is called:


the file you have downloaded is for the Share Point client.

Re: Solid Edge ST7 - Maintenance Pack 1 Announcement


Indeed, I looked over it. Thanks


Nevertheless, I still don't understand this kind of work...

Built in update system and maintenance uninstall should be implemented for a better user experience.

Is it time for an enhancement request ?

Hi Mesru,

you have to unpack the provided ...MP1.exe file.

(I am using 7zip software to do this).


After unpackicg, there is a bunch of files. I use this script for silent install of MP

It works for ST6, not tested on MP1 for ST7, but I pressume that there will be no changes in MP install package.



"%folder%MP\MP10\SE64MP10\setup.exe" -s -f2C:\temp\ST6MPXXsilentsetup.log


Hope this helps.



Re: Solid Edge ST7 - Maintenance Pack 1 Announcement


I had no crashes until MP1.

Already 5 since yesterday.


Am I the only one?
