I read early release version of 2015 SP5 is available - but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone know where/how I can get this?
You can do from within SolidWorks within the Help menu pull down....
This only lists to install 2016 SP0.1.
Service Packs Downloads
The SP5 for 2015 is not listed as available on this page.
You need to change your profile at customerportal.solidworks.com and enable the beta/ev option. After that (and maybe registering a product if your account is new) you should be able to dowload via the customerportal.
I was under the impression it would be available by October. However, October has now come and gone and we are still plagued with many issues in 2015.
If you are having a lot of issues, SP5 may not be the fix. You may have other problems with your PC/server.
Try a reinstall.
I don't have near as many problems that I read here in this forum.
I already had to do the reinstall being that many things were not working due to the windows update.

Would you rather have them rush to get it out in October, or take the time to get more of those issues fixed?
I would rather they issue software that was fully functional without these major crashing issues that cause major loss of productivity.
I too can not download the 2015 SP5 EV, even though I am signed up for Beta and EV versions. I suspect that 2015 SP5 EV had some issues so it was pulled. Waiting just like you so that maybe this service pack will resolve some issues.
SW 2015 SP5.0 EV is there.
You have to use the drop down at top of page to list 2015 versions. 2016 is default.
It is not available for me.
It is not available for me either. Only goes up to SP4.
I wonder if it will only show to those who have previously downloaded and/or are running it?
You need to set our profile for Early Visibility Program. Log into your SOLIDWORKS Portal account, go to my profile and select the option “Notify me for EV (Early Visibility) access” under My Preferences.
As I have already mentioned, I am already signed up for EV and Beta and have been for years. Still no option for 2105 SP5. I suspect that only people who have previously downloaded and/or installed it, before it was pulled, can see it.
The final SP was never released and I still can see the EV version listed on the site.
go here - Early Visibility Program | SOLIDWORKS
then click on the "Join Program" link
Just got a conformation that the release date for SP 5.0 has been pushed back a little to include a couple of additional fixes related to software stability. It's coming soon
