This is happening in some of my assemblies.   the cursor acts as if a set of selection filters are set on, but if you look at the selection filter toolbar they do not seem to be selected.   in particular the dimension and face selection are always coming up.

I downloaded Solidworks from my university website. When I run the installation, It fails when attempting to install Solidworks Electrical. The log files report many errors and it ends with "** Install FAILED with code 1603". Does anyone know how to fix this issue? Thanks.

Hi!   I was working with the SolidWorks 2016, when I made a sketch and I apply there the feature "boss extruder". A menu that will allow me configuring the feature (i.e. 1 or 2 directions, blind or up to a surface, ...) should appear but facts are that it does not.   How could I fix this?   Regards
