When using the View Setup utility to create a PDM local vault view, the first step is to select or add the name of the PDM Archive Server hosting the vault for which you want to attach. If your currently logged in Windows user is not listed in attach access on the Archive Server, then you will encounter a security screen requesting to “Enter a valid account for this resource.” This is not a SOLIDWORKS PDM vault login, but rather a Windows authentication login to allow the user to attach to the PDM Archive Server.

By default, when SOLIDWORKS PDM transition complete a state change operation on a file, all references files are also selected to transition automatically. Users can manually de-select files to exclude them from the transition.

With the option off, users will have to select which files will accompany the transitioning files through the state change.
