Click to view contentI wanted to start a new thread where we can collect some of the craziest messages that we get when working with solidworks. Please try to insert the image into the text using the insert image button. Also, try not to post here unless you have an image to contribute, so that there is not too much text in between each image.  Anyone have the chinese… (Show more)

Hi,   I have recently been given the responsibility of managing changes on a machine and it's accompanying files (Parts, Drawings, and Assemblies). I was initially very nonplussed to get this project because it is a notoriously complicated and poor revision control has been maintained on the machine. I mean, I heard people complaning about… (Show more)

Click to view contentHi, colleagues! A few months ago, our company had a problem: lack of licenses. I’ve decided to analyze how long employees have been using the license. I’ve begun to read forums and search for information, then I’ve talked with colleagues at the SW-users meeting, also I found a video application here. As a result, I’ve decided to analyze it… (Show more)

I normally use admin install images but I can't get it to work with 2019 SP4.0 The install window pops up and then disappears right away without making any progress. No error and no install log in the admin image directory, despite debug logging being enabled on the admin image. If I pull the local log it doesn't seem to have any actionable… (Show more)

The FLEXLM client in Solidworks 2019 and later is apparently not compatible with the server side FLEXLM for 2017. If the server side is upgraded, will this negatively impact users of older versions?

Click to view contentHi all, I had a major computer crash last week and had to completely restore the computer back to it's original (as new) condition. After re-installing everything and getting it back to where it was at beforehand, Solidworks has been somewhat quirky. It works fine, it's just inherited a few strange behaviours. Here's just one :-   When I go to… (Show more)

Hi, I've set up an admin install of 2019 SP2.0 in a similar way to how we've done it for several years. However, this time the install runs absolutely fine, activates etc, but the install process doesn't exit. The sldim.exe process just lurks there forever until I kill it. I could set my software distribution mechanism to kill it after a delay… (Show more)

I want to swap licences between 2 of my users - the one that has the Premium licence doesn't use Simulation, whilst the one that has the Professional licence wants to. I know how to deactivate licences and install that licence on another machine, but there must be a way to swap them without having to re-install. How would I go about it?     SW… (Show more)

Click to view contentHope this is the right group to ask this...   We are running SW 2017 with Workgroup PDM.  In the vault, normally you can right click a file, and select Document Information from the pop-up menu to see information on the file.  The VIEW tab is supposed to show a view of the file contents.  This works for us "sometimes", but other times it pops up… (Show more)
