PDMWorks Vault on Windows XP Pro

Hi,
We're looking on implementing PDMWorks. The vault will be on a dedicated
machine, doing nothing else. The docs says that it can be installed on
Windows XP or Server 2000 or Server 2003. There's a big difference in cost.
Is there some notable performance difference?
We're about 8 SolidWorks users.
Thanks,
Conj

works fine on a xp pro box.
if history carries over (from nt workstation & w2k pro), you will be limited to 10 clients being able to connect simultaneously to xp box.

Currently there is a problem with server2003 & pdmworks - Somthing with the way the 2003 manages files. However XPpro should be just fine.

Hi, I found:

it looks like PDMWorks doesn't keep the connection alive very long so it shouldn't be a problem. If we don't get 10 users requesting something at the same time...
Thanks, Conj

Steve, We are in the middle of deploying PDMWorks 2004 on Server 2003 - can you elaborate on what the issues are?
Regards, Marc

Typical symptoms are excessive time to login to the vault and take ownership of files, as well as high CPU usage on the server.
