Viewing Package Content Using the Static Manifest
When you download a package ZIP file, you can view the package offline. When a package ZIP file is created with a static manifest, it contains a manifest file. To view the static manifest,
1. Open the package ZIP file.
2. Select the manifest.txt file and extract it to your computer.
Depending on the package sender’s Windchill configuration, the manifest file may have a different name or file extension.
3. Open the file using a standard text program.
Extracting the contents from one or more package ZIP files is not required to view the static manifest, but is usually required to use the files located in the Content directory.
If files within the ZIP file have names that contain non-ASCII characters, they may not extract properly. Use an application such as WinRAR or 7-Zip to maintain the special characters in the filenames and complete your extraction.
There are several sections within the static manifest.
