Using the Windchill Extension Shell


The Windchill Extension shell is a command line that interrogates the wex kernel running on a Windchill server.

Access it with this command:

%WT_HOME%/bin/windchill com.wincomplm.wex.kernel.commands.WexCommandLineExecutor -u wcadmin -p xxxxx -pid com.wincomplm.wex-system -cid shell

It must be run as an admin user. All modification to load and unload extensions require full admin rights.




A manual deploy is done using the dp command.

The wex or wexb packages must be placed in the wex/deploy area first and then the command will install the packages on this node.
