Solidworks has done a massive disservice to its customers. Solidworks is now so complex and the security so intrusive it no long works period. A simple DWG file takes 2 minutes to open on an MSI Stealth computer with 32 gigs of Ram and an I7 processor. Solidworks no longer functional. Tech support blames this on video cards but there is no reason it can't run on any high end video card. There programmers need to address this issue while they still have a following. . At the least there should be a "mode" button to let it run on very high end laptops costing over $2000.00.
Their solution is for me to purchase another laptop yet they won't recommend one.
