If you’re having trouble installing a SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard client or server, there are a few common errors to check. These errors include firewall ports, a database that has already been created, and using “localhost” instead of the computer name. Learn more about these common installation errors in SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard here.
Firewall ports 1433 and 3030 must be open. To check if the ports are open, run a telnet test.
If the ports are still failing even after adding an exception to the firewall, Enable remote TCP/IP connections.
If installing a NEW SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard database, occasionally an instance is already installed, or if a previous installation fails, the default instance has already been created. There are two possible solutions.
When installing SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard, it is important to use your computer name instead of “localhost”. Change from “localhost”, to your server name on the SQL server name.
