Never used matexpert before, but I load up an assembly and added a redundant constraint to a screw, CTRL+Q, RMB-> MateXpert and
.... INSTANT CRASH!
It seems that they broke another thing in SW2015 SP5. Very sad.

DS SolidWorks does not guarantee that this SPR fix will be available in the indicated future release of the
product since at this time the SPR fix has not completed QA procedures that incorporate all SPR fixes and
enhancements into a new version of our product.
Awesome, fixed it in 2016! Super. So our company will never update to anything beyond a final SP on the second to newest release. And then only if we have to, due to some component going obsolete.
Anyone ever heard of an old bug getting fixed in a previous release? I could give a rat's petootie about this tool, never use it, really just trying to learn the new bugs in 2015, but full broken features still don't get fixed?
And if we could go to 2016, no way would we get close to that pile.
OK, at the end of the day, SW is still the best out there for the money, and 87% of it works great, but if I'm honest, I spend about 13% of my time working around dumb inconsistencies ("the surface cannot terminate the feature. Check that the sketch is within the surface blah blah blah")
Really? All these years, and you still can't figure out a way to fix this? I have 4 different ways I do it, embarrassed for you SW that you can't figure out a way to program something I did in 5 minutes, using all your own tools.
