Hi Fred,

 

Any word on whether MP3 will fix the problem of Design Manager not being able to launch using right click.  I posted an issue where an error message of "there was a problem sending the command..." ?

 

 http://community.plm.automation.siemens.com/t5/Solid-Edge-Forum/ST9-Problems-with-Design-Manager/td-...

 

It's reported under IR7809269

Hi Kyle, 

 

Sorry, no solution in MP3. This problem is being tracked by Master PR 7803803.

 

I have escalated the problem for review in our next Change Control Board meeting requesting the PR be investigated for ST9 MP4. There are currently 4 customers reporting this behavior.

 

Once scheduled for investigation, we may need to request a few more machine specific details on the machine you are reproducing this problem on. Thus far development has not uncovered a combination that will reproduce the issue each time so it can be captured in the debug environment.

Hi Fred,

 

Ok.  I can launch DM separately and run it in that manner for now.

Sorry Bruce.

 

It appears I put a space in the folder name. I have renamed the folder now - Insight_Server. Give it a bit to sync with the other FTP servers and you should then be able to access the folder.

In order to roll back a maintenance pack, would we need to have installed earlier ones, or do we simply have to have the earlier MP available ?

I ask because we haven't yet updated to ST9 (or even ST8), but when we do we don't really want to install several MP's.

MSI Product Updates are all inclusive, i.e. fixes delivered in MP3 include all fixes delivered in MP1 and MP2. Therefore, when you move to ST9, you can install the latest MP available and get all fixes.

 

MSI Product Updates are uninstalled via the Control Panel (Uninstall a program –> View installed updates -> Uninstall). The current MSI Product Update will be the only Update listed and available for uninstallation. After the current Update is uninstalled, the previous Update will become the current Update. Example: If you have installed MP1, MP2, and MP3. Removing the current Update will revert you to MP2, and so on. If you only install MP3, removing the current Update will revert you back to the base release.
