your software on multiple workstations? Did you people even consider
the fact most IS departments would probably like to upgrade remotely?!
The administrative image option sucks too. Now, I have to go to
every workstation to upgrade them since it won't accept accessing the
CD over the network... and then it takes F'in forever!
And what's with the crap you can't even install Solidworks 2004 if you
have toolbox on the network and it's in use? Did you think that maybe
some IS staffs might like to work normal hours too?
And then... to top it all off... you pull a service pack off the web
to fix it... so now we have to go through all this crap again! I
thought progress meant getting better... you guys are regressing in a
big way and I expect you're going to begin losing customers (at least
not gaining new ones) if you don't make it easier to administrate the
software. And lets not forget the fact 2004 has gone backwards in
speed! We have the most powerful workstations on the market and our
productivity has noticeably decreased (not to mention coplaints have
skyrocketed) from 2003 because of the inefficiency in drawings w/ 2004
And another thing... what's w/ upgrading the toolbox database w/ a
service pack?! So now I have no choice but to upgrade everyone at the
same time! I can't even test the service pack first?!
I can't imagine what companies w/ 30-40 users have to go through. Oh
yeah... I almost forgot! If it's so detrimental to Solidworks if you
install or upgrade while virus protection software is running... why
don't you REQUIRE (key word... require) it to be disabled before
installing or upgrading? Other vendors can do it... why not you?
