Is the solver is running to completion without errors? The solver is a separate process so if it were to fail or crash, it would just send you back to solidworks, usually with an error that analysis failed. Try using the other solver, you have a choice between FFEPlus and Direct Sparse.
Thanks for the response.
It actually ran all the way through without error, but when I clicked on Stress results I get the Insufficient Data in Results File error. It doesn't crash it just doesn't give results.
Using an alternate solver sounds like a good idea but I actually was able to get results by running it again with Draft quality mesh although Solidworks crashed a couple of times.
By the way, I am running an Intel DualCore Processor at 1.80 GHz, 2.00 GB, and 20 GB of allocated hard drive space.
