Re: TopSolid Update: Unable to connect to update server

I'm not sure if this is what the solution is, but after doing these steps it worked:

1. Using setup.exe uninstalled everything (including TS Update)
2. Deleted the TopsolidPDM folder
3. Restarted my machine
4. Ran setup.exe again

And now its working.
