Benefits and Description
PTC Windchill 10.2 offers the following Desktop Integration Client functionality enhancements:
- Desktop Integration has been updated to support the following software:
- Microsoft Office 2013
- Microsoft Windows 8
- Active management of the File Download Mechanism preference: A new configuration option checks the File Download Mechanism preference when a user connects to a Windchill server. If the preference is not set to use Desktop Integration, then Desktop Integration sets the preference accordingly.
- Enhanced ability to control file download behavior: Desktop Integration users no longer see a Save As prompt if their File Download Behavior preference is set to Always open file in application.
- Prompt to open local files: If a user opens a document from Windchill and has a modified version of that document locally saved, they receive a prompt asking if they would like to open the local version instead.
