Just a quick announcement that the newest update to PD 16.6 is now available to download.   If you are using 16.6 it is recommended to apply this update.  

Downloads are available from your SAP Launchpad at  Click on the Download box and follow the menu to SAP PowerDesigner 16.6 (Support Packages and Patches).   You can then select from 32 or 64bit depending on your existing setup.

The Download File include:

  • PowerDesigner MSI installer (which include both upgrade to French and US version) - 32bit & 64bit
  • PDWeb and Proxy upgrade setup

Users must upgrade both Proxy and Client (desktop and web) to make the connection to repository work correctly.
