I'm getting the following error when I try to upgrade from SW 2015 SP4 to SP5. I hope I don't have to do a uninstall to get SP5 to install. Anyone else having this issue?
I think that a clean download will be the fastest solution.
Uninstall, clean the registry install again,
just be aware of two Windows updates which might couse problems (KB3072630, KB3097877)
the first one should be disabled during the install, the second one need to be uninstalled and installed again (with the latest version).
Hope this helps
Yep. I got the same thing yesterday..I posted over on the Waiting for SP5 thread.
Thank you for your post. It looks like the same 1603 error.
Re: When will sp5 for 2015 be released?
Ho are you upgrading?
I'm using the "SolidWorks Installation Manager -- Check For Updates -- Individual".
Just guessing, at least something I would think about when looking at the log files.
If you installed SW2015 originally from e.g. C:\Users\X\Documents\SolidWorks Downloads
I would try to put the downloaded files in the exact same location and install from there.
If that would not work I would also have the original files there (last successful install).
If you don´t remember the path you installed SW last time, you should be able to read it from the log files.
The log files path seems OK, \SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP05\ but I am missing the original SW 2015 folder, I may have deleted it or used the DVD for SP0.
I have download folders:
\SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP02\
\SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP02.1\
\SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP03\
\SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP04\
\SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP05\
The log file has an ambiguous ending.
I'll try installing SW 2015 SP5 again and this time I'll put the original DVD in before I start the install and see if that works.
That did not work, still got the same error with the DVD in the drive at around 30% complete and then further along during the install I got a new error message below:
I think I'll delete folder \SolidWorks Downloads\SOLIDWORKS 2015 x64 SP05\ then wait a week before attempting SW 2015 SP5 in case SW makes a fix to the SW 2015 SP5.
Thank you for your detailed instruction. I have uninstalled SW 2015. I am not sure if I will try re-installing SW 2015. SW 2015 has been a nightmare! I suffered thru the SW 2015 SP2 corrupt files bug. If I try and install SW 2015 SP5 I will update this post if it succeeds or fails. I am moving on to SW 2016 SP0.1, for better or worse, until corrupt files do us part.
I was getting error 1603 and I have uninstalled SW 2015 but this may have been the solution I was looking for.
I keep getting this Error while trying to install.
Cant install 2015 sp5 arggghhhh!
When i try to run it again this is what happens
Does it not support windows 7/pro
no it support it try to unblock the set-up before running it and run as administrator
..ouch... I'd wager you may have a problem with your Windows 7 install.. that is, most likely, DLL's missing/corrupt or registry problems for that XP error to show up?
imho.. before you go further,.. you should do a repair on Windows 7.
.a third party utility, I'd highly recommend is (Tweaking.com - Windows Repair v3.6.5 Released) ...it does a very good job!
(btw, it includes reg back up and system restore before you do anything.)... just follow each step... good luck!
Ran the install from within solidworks ,help, Check for Updates and it ran and installed fine
Retrieving data ...
