The Benchmark test says Reboot first and don’t use the computer during test. Leave your computer unattended during test. I see a lot of people asking for feedback on this issue. I see that a lot of people look at the post but no one answers. I have seen crash issues in 2015, 2016 and now 2017 on 4 different computers.
WHEN the SOLIDWORKS crashed twice during the Benchmark test all the results are corrupted in a number of ways.
- Time is adding to the test if the user is has left the computer unattended and a crash goes unbeknownst.
- The crash requires the user to use the computer during the test just to continue the test.
- The required restart of the software must also add time to the test.
There are questions one must ask about the Benchmark test that the test does not answer.
- What applications (TSR's) are running at the start of the test and would SOLIDWORKS recommend the user shut off.
- What part of the Benchmark test did SOLIDWORKS crash and why?
- Can any lesson be learned and corrected so the test can be run again?
- What suggestions would SolidWorks make to help the user continue to improve performance?
The SOLIDWORKS Benchmark test is not real helpful without feedback.
What are we missing?
