Introduction

Even if you close a file in CREO it is still loaded in memory, they can not be replaced by the interface.  


Question or Problem

Scenario:

  • User A has loaded assembly into session
  • User B changes the assembly, sets a new status on SAP
  • User A still has assembly "in session", opens the assembly again from ECTR "Open original

Problem:

  • ECTR writes the latest version (CAD file) in the working directory of User A and indicates the interface that a new version is available.
  • User A still has his old file loaded in CAD memory "In Session". (error) He continues working with an "out of date" file and can save this later.  (error)
  • An replacement "In Session memory" cannot be performed due to limitations of the CREO interface.

 


Causes

Not considered specifics / limitations of a CAD system.


Workaround and Solutions

Be aware of this issue and use the "clear memory" feature in CREO.

Use ECTR 5.2.3.1 or 5.1.16.2 as soon they are available

Add this switch:
