If you've installed and used version 8.0.0 of the Manufacturing Apps and would like to extend your usage beyond the trial expiration time, we invite you to use the new version of the Apps (8.0.1), which now includes Production Advisor.


You will need to uninstall and reinstall the application to begin this process.  You will be able to preserve your configuration data by exporting it, but you will only be able to import it in the commercial version of the Application.  To export your configuration: navigate to the hamburger menu at the top right of the screen and select "Export Configuration and Data"

To move to the latest release of the free edition of the application (8.0.1):

1. Uninstall the applications.  Navigate to the Start Menu > ThingWorx Manufacturing Apps > Uninstall.

2. Download the latest version: https://www.ptc.com/en/thingworx/manufacturing-apps/Dashboard/Download-Apps

3. Run the installer.


If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to post a question in the manufacturing apps community, or in response to this post; we will be happy to assist you!
