Does the Add to library process need to be run for every user?

Question  Question

If we have multiple users all accessing the same Solid Edge data, does the Add to library process need to be run for every user?

Answer  Answer

In situations where there are multiple users all accessing the same data, there is no need to run the ‘Add to Library’ function on all machines. To save time you set one machine up and then simply copy the database file onto the other machines. This file will reside in the ‘Ingenea File Control Data’ folder in the users ‘My Documents’ area and is called ‘Data.sdf’

The initial machine setup will include running ‘Add to Library’ and choosing the properties that should be synchronised. In addition to this, if common advanced searches are used, then it is possible to set these up and save them. All saved searches are stored in the database file.
