installation ceased at 43%, box comes up, stating please close running programs. There are none. What do I do? Retry doesn't work. only 2 options left. ignore or cancel.
What have you decided to do? Or already done...
Did you run Task Manager to check for running programs?
just click ignore then after installation do not open, restart your computer.
cancel installation and restart your computer donot open anything except the solidworks installer.
You might want to open Control Panel and check to see if you have more than one Service Pack loaded. In the past, I have found that having 2 service packs loaded restricted me from loading SW content. It treats the 2 Service Packs as different instances of SW. It is a long shot but this may be the case if you are reinstalling or upgrading SW.
