I am using Solidworks 2015 SP5.0 on a Windows 7 enterprise. It is crashing so often its becoming unusable. I don't have a subscription currently. Is there a better service pack? Can I get it without a sub? Recommendations?
Hi All I started reading the 2018 installation document and under the upgrading the database server section is states "Cancel the SolidWorks installation manger" and run "\SWPDMServer\setup.exe". In the past I have always done it this way. Unfortunately "\SWPDMServer\setup.exe" is not on the download I got from the customer portal. Do we…(Show moreShow less)
Never mind. I answered my own question. When I downloaded 2018 I put it on my local drive. When I moved it to a network drive, it didn't copy the entire folder for what ever reason. I went back to the original copy and everything was there. The sky is not falling.
Hello, I recently got a Dell Precision 5530 for work with the NVIDIA Quadro P2000 graphics card and it is certified on SW here: http://www.solidworks.com/pages/services/VideoCardTesting.html I downloaded the driver from the SW website because my driver didn't match. Now it matches but Solidworks Rx still doesn't recognize the system…(Show moreShow less)
I have to agree with Chris here. We still use Smarteam now and will be switching Q1 next year, fingers crossed... From what I've seen, the Solidworks resource flyout will have all you need for PDM. Nice to see another Smarteam user (has switched)... Here's my Smarteam "ribbon" for the command manager but I still had to activate the add-in. …

This one has me stumped. We have an admin image install that gets rolled out to everyone along with a locked settings file. One the whole, this works well for us. We have an isolated case where an engineer is using a laptop with a 12month term standalone license for a special project - SW has been installed as an individual install, not by the…(Show moreShow less)
I am having this same issue. Has anyone figured out how to fix this? In my case, SW was originally installed on my machine using an administrative image with a settings file which locked most system settings. That original admin image has since been deleted and I've even uninstalled (completely, deleted registry entries and all) and reinstalled…
I am the new Engineering Service Manager for my company and trying to set myself up as the SOLIDWORKS Administrator. When I go to the screen and select "Promote me to SOLIDWORKS Administrator it doesn't work. I can't select the ckechboxes. I notice that there is an area where I think my company name should be but it is blank. My company name,…(Show moreShow less)
All, it seems to be an Admin portal glitch. The following is part of a reply from SolidWorks: "I did an update and refresh on the back end here that was a workaround for another Admin Portal glitch I was seeing and I'm wondering if it will clear it up for this error as well." Whatever the "update and refresh" on the back end was, worked. I…
