Solidworks and MS Windows 7 Index File

Question asked by M. B. on Oct 7, 2015

A while back I found a thread about how Solidworks causes the Windows Index file to be incomplete when Solidworks is installed, upgraded, or something.  I can’t find that thread now.


On my Windows workstation, search results are usually instantaneous in Windows Explorer, MS Office Outlook, etc. Occasionally I get this message or something similar, “Searches might be slow in non-indexed locations: C:\xxxxx\... Click to add index…”  When this happens I rebuild the index which works for a while but sooner or later I have to rebuild the index again.


Does anyone know if this is really related to Solidworks?  If so, what is the fix or workaround?
