  • ​​DWG-files cannot be published in Windchill PDMLink

  • This requires a Autocad-custom worker (pds-worker)

  • Java path is changed / updated, so the start_acad.bat file is not finding the java.exe-file which it need:


  1. Check agent.ini for the search-path for the AUTOCAD-worker, e.g.

    [worker3]
    distributed=false
    autostart=true
    host=selid-v-0014.kmtworld.com
    autobusystop=60
    autoidlestop=600
    starttime=30
    startfromlocal=FALSE
    autoerrorstop=true
    hosttype=nt
    remotepath=D:\worker_tmp
    exe=D:\ptc\pds-custom-worker\bin\start_acad.bat
    localpath=\\<workerhostname>\worker_tmp
    password=
    maxinstances=1
    shapetype=AUTOCAD
    prompt=
    username=
    port=601
  2. ​​Update the start_acad.bat on <workerhostname> with search path to the new java.exe directory, e.g.:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_221\bin\java.exe" ..........

  3. Republish failed dwg-files..
