Notes:

  • The SolidWorks Enterprise PDM server components can run on workstations running XP, but in a production environment, SolidWorks Corporation requires the use of a server-specific operating system.
  • The minimum requirement is an absolute minimum. SolidWorks Corporation cannot guarantee system performance or behavior for installations running on configurations not meeting the minimum recommended levels.
  • The hard drive requirements are solely dependent on the size of data stored in the system. Therefore, the actual requirements can exceed the values in this recommendation.
  • The recommended configuration is based on a typical installation with approximately 20 users and approximately 60,000 stored documents.
  • Prerequisites for installing any SolidWorks Enterprise PDM component are Windows Installer 3.1,MSXML 6, and Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SQL_DMO backward-compatibility drivers. These are automatically installed when running the SolidWorks Enterprise PDM setup. Client also has a prerequisite of Microsoft .Net 3 Framework.
  • If using an administrative install image for client deployment, these components will not be installed automatically.
  • As the Database Server of SolidWorks Enterprise PDM runs on SQL server, we do not recommend installing any instances of other applications on the database server.
  • Note that client, database and archive server support both 32 and 64 bit operating systems, but web server currently supports 32 bit operating systems only.
  • Starting with SolidWorks Enterprise PDM 2009 the product will only be available on DVDs.
  • Windows 2003 Small Business Server Edition is not supported. Installation is blocked for SolidWorks Workgroup PDM Vault.
