Dear Solid Edge Customer:
Solid Edge ST7 Maintenance Pack 1 for Solid Edge is available for download.
The Solid Edge Team
Maintenance Packs are released 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 ST7 English was
08/08/14, making the Maintenance Pack cutoff date 11/08/15.
In order to deliver the first ST7 Maintenance Pack in a timely manner, ST7 Maintenance Packs will continue to
be delivered using RTPatch technology and will require a complete uninstall of Solid Edge in the event a ST7 MP
needs to be removed.
ST7 Maintenance Packs can be downloaded from:
Maintenance Pack Executables (.exe files) patch existing product dlls. Maintenance Pack executables
are all inclusive and can be installed on top of a base release or any released Maintenance Pack.
Maintenance Pack Installs (.zip files) are complete product setups. Therefore, existing versions must be
uninstalled using Add/Remove Programs from the Control Panel prior to installing the new setup.
To receive direct e-mail notification for new Solid Edge Update or Maintenance Packs, subscribe

Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
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.
Indeed, I looked over it. Thanks
Nevertheless, I still don't understand this kind of work...
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.
I had no crashes until MP1.
Already 5 since yesterday.
Am I the only one?
