Installing PowerDesigner Viewer in Windows 10

Hello folks,

I'm with a problem in Windows 10 when I connect in a repository using the PowerDesigner Viewer (Version 16.5 SP4).

The "Connection Type" of my repository is "Proxy". In the "Proxy Repository Definition", I fill the "Repository name", the "Server name" and "Port number". When I click in the combobox, nothing appears and if I fill the combo with my instance name and click the "Test" button, the following error occur: "The Windows Socket Connection to the proxy failed with error: 0 (...)"

I know that this code does not help nothing =/

This version is not compatible with Windows 10?

Can someone help me?

Hello Thierry,

I solved the problem. Windows 10 "recognize" the DNS of my company differently from windows 7. So I had to put the complete path to the server, for example, "" instead of just "powerdesigner" which is my DNS.

Did I made myself clear?
