Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.3.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms


The MCAD connector version 3.5.0 when installed gets updated on Solidworks 2013 and 2016 even though we pick one version during installation.This breaks the current MCAD 3.3 connection to Agile PLM 9.3.3.  How can one have two different versions of MCAD connector connected to two different Solidworks versions on the same machine or computer ?

Expected Behavior:


The user should be able to install two different versions of MCAD connector connected to two different Solidworks versions on the same Laptop or system.

Steps to Reproduce:

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Install MCAD 3.5 on a machine that has MCAD 3.3 installed
  2. Notice that the MCAD 3.3 installation no longer works!
