When I go to : file-new or just select the new icon solidworks freezes and crashes out. I uninstalled and re installed the software and updated and no luck.
I can however open files. Any help is greatly appreciated!
Probably your templates have messed up. Open existing file, delete/remove the details you do not need and save as templates. And then make sure you set the path correctly under Default Templates and File Locations.
Tried to solve using this. It crashes when I try to select the ... icon next to the file location. I will try to look at the file locations and see if they are ok.
Any other suggestions?
Try setting the template path under File Locations. The path could be added via registry (not recommended though).
If nothing is working then try using the RX tool and send the files to your VAR (company you bought the software from) and explain them the issue.
