How can I get the executable / zipped file for Open Workbench (OWB) that's compatible with my release? 


Release : All Supported Releases



1. Ensure you have the following global access right: Software Download - Open Workbench.

2. Download the OWB file from Clarity PPM via Home->Account settings->Software downloads.

3. Run the OWB exe and then go through the installation prompts to install OWB

Note: Prior to installing the new version:

  • Make a backup of any views you may have saved in the folders if they are still there
  • Uninstall any prior OWB components from the workstation (including both Open Workbench and Schedule Connect)

Also, The file is available as an executable, not a zipped file. You can make the executable into a zip as needed
