What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Launcher?

The 3DEXPERIENCE Launcher is a utility that runs on the client machines, specifically client machines that use native applications, like CATIA or an integration, like to Microsoft Office or CATIA V5 or SOLIDWORKS that enables launching those applications directly from the web browser.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Launcher has an embedded certificate and that certificate is expiring November 28, 2021. After this date, the launcher will no longer function properly, in fact the call to launch the client software will fail due to an expired certificate.

To avoid an interruption in service the launcher can be upgraded but will need to be upgraded on every client machine in the deployment. The details of downloading and updating the launcher are detailed in the following FAQ QA00000065062.
