maybe I'm wrong, but this error message for me looks more like something coming from an additional software, preverable - as the the name seems to come from - something what has to do with PDM
So is there any PDM software as addon to Solid Edge?
Try to diesbale those AddIns first and see wether or not SE will start.
This is ST10 not ST9. As ST10 is not yet released I do not know how much help the community can be for this. Check your build number of ST10 -- is it the latest beta build?
@hawcad EdgePDM is a new ST10 command that allows you to choose and set your Solid Edge PDM integration on the fly e.g. no more choosing which PDM integration to install. Going forward with ST10 all PDM integrations are now automatically installed along with the base Solid Edge install.
@TomQue It's a command that allows the user to select which Solid Edge PDM client they have installed and will then tailor the Solid Edge icons in the Start -> Solid Edge to match the selected PDM client.
