This should work fine, provided you have copied all the files defining the model from your laptop.
This includes the .dmd file and the folder with the same name, and all its subfolders.
Are there any errors logged in your log file? This is normally file datamodeler.log in folder datamodeler/datamodeler/log.
Thanks for the quick reply.
the dmd file and its folder are located on a network, so it's actually the same files which are loaded on both platforms
I've checked the log content as you've suggested, but it shows no error.
I gave the jre embedded 64 bits version a try. It actually managed to open my model in 20minutes (versus 4min with SDDM 4.0 32 bits on xp)
my advice is to not put your designs on network drive. In addition to slow performance you can damage your design. DM is not built for such usage.
If you need several people to work on one design then you need to setup SVN repository here is a starting point for tutorials and online demonstrations - SQL Developer Data Modeler Learn More</title><meta name="Title" content="SQL Developer Data Mode…
Otherwise if the version of Data Modeler is the same then you need to tune your network and workstations.
You were right. That was a network issue, copying to local repository my model files did solve the problem
Unfortunately, Clearcase is the company cvs and i'm not at the liberty to use SVN :s
Since I do need this file to be shared with serveral people I guess some call to my network admin is in order
Thank your for your insight.
