    CATIA V6 is more an All-in-one solution for the industry, including a lot of special solutions, mechanical construcion, knowledge, documentation, ..... It is not only CAD-Software like V5.
    So you need an IT-infrastructure (Server-Client).

    Dear All
    V6 is hybrit,there are two methot of read and write datas. One of them is file based method( You can read CATIA V5 files & xcad files like step,igs )
    other method is server based file managment. (There are some servers ( application server, file server etc.)and file managed by the systems.
    ın this system user just propagete the files.

    You can certainely save your models in Catia V6, but in database not locally.
    After having saved your files in database, from there you can export them to local drives(3DXML files).In pirated Catia you can never save your models as they are not configured with database.
    You can save..., but only to nutral frormats.

    Problem :
    The server cannot process this request. (Information to report to the support : No valid option[Policy] was found for entity 'PLMRepresentationDS' in PLMChooser (info: <default>/default(97)))

    I installed v6r2009, there are several issues:
    1. there is no local save option available.
    2. there is no propagate all option available
    3. in propagate option whenever I try to save anything, it shows right protected error
    4. in export option i can save only in stp or igs format, hence whenever I reopen these files all features are not seen , i get only dumb solid
    ** it is pirated
    can i never be able to save anything?
    do i need enovia v6 also? if yes, is there any pirated version of it?
    Please advice!
