Solidworks 2013 is unreliable on windows 10 in windows 7 compatibility mode. Sometimes, it opens fine, other times it takes 30 minutes to open. Once open, it works fine. Any ideas?
well, imho, make sure you are running under windows administrator mode..
I don't have windows 10 installed.. I'm running 8.1, and I see this behavior as welI using 2012,.. most of the time it kicks arse... and somethings not as good, but in general.. 2012 performs better than 2014/2015/2016.
..I would guess that older feature functionality using some legacy compilers do not play well in the newer OS under windows 7 compatibility mode?
How I've fixed some of the hiccups (and with the versions as well) is to perform a repair... or, just do the rename/registry to reset.. it seems to work.
