Can't LoginIf the password for the SolidWorks Workgroup PDM administrator user has been lost, it is possible to reset the original
administrator login account.

When Workgroup PDM is first installed the administrator user is pdmwadmin with the password pdmwadmin.  If this user has been deleted or if it’s password has been changed, it’s possible to reset this account by making direct changes to files within the Workgroup PDM VaultData folder on the server.

To reset the pdmwadmin user account, follow these steps:

1.  Login as a Windows user with Administrative rights on the server hosting the Workgroup PDM Vault

2.  Go to the Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services and Stop the  “SolidWorks Workgroup PDM Server” service.
