Is it possible to enable write access to or modify a Released status file without changing the status of the file or creating a new revision?
Solution Normal Solid Edge behaviour prevents you from making changes to a file with a Released status without first changing the status of the file or creating a new revision of a file. Using the following workaround it is possible to modify a Released status file without changing the status of the file or creating a new revision.
In the registry create the following DWORD (32-bit) value:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions\Solid Edge\Version 110\DEBUG\DOCMGMT_OVERRIDESTATUSCHECKFORFILEACCESS
Set this value to = 1.
Now, whenever you open a Released status file in Solid Edge, in the Read-Only Assistant window select "Request write access" and the file will immediately become modifiable without having to change the file status or creating a new revision.
