Installing Maintenance Packs is quick and easy. Some known security issues arise with installing any software on Windows 7 OS regarding User Access Control (UAC); these same issues exist when installing MPs. Windows UAC should be turned off and after unbundling the download run the .exe as administrator by right mouse clicking on the file and selecting Run as Administrator from the quick menu. Most UAC security issues can be avoided by installing Solid Edge to a location on the client machine anywhere other than the default “Program Files” folder. As long as the user has full write permission to a folder location such as C:SolidEdge these issues should not arise.
PROLIM PLM encourages all of our customers to stay current with released Maintenance Packs. Maintenance Packs deliver the most current updates and resolution of PRs to your software platform. You can find detailed information regarding the PRs that a Maintenance Pack addresses in the “readme” .txt file found with the MP download.
