if you want to try this it should refresh
all the settings to default- without a clean install
first try with SolidWorks- System Options>
and "Reset"> "Reset All Options" (see below)
if this doesn't do it try:-
type - "Regedit"> right click
and run as "Administrator"
in the "Registry Editor" left directory pane
navigate to your version of SolidWorks by:-
right click on your version
of SolidWorks- e.g. Solidworks2017
and rename- e.g. Solidworks2017OLD
close out regedit
and restart SolidWorks
this is like a reboot for SW
with default/clean settings
hope this helps- have a good'n kelef
Thank you for the response. Unfortunately I tried both of these with no luck. It might run slightly faster, but it is still painfully slow.
as Jim Wilkinson says below-
and he knows way more than me
but just another thought-
have you tried disabling, turning off-
all add-ins, (at start up)
updates and forum connections-
then run "SolidWorks Rx"
from your windows menu - kelef
The crash and the slowness may be completely coincidental.
My guess is that you are using an unsupported GeForce card and either Windows or NVIDIA has done an automatic driver updated that you are unaware of.
See this thread for more details:
Most in that thread say the solution is to install the latest driver, go back to an older driver, or turn off an anti-aliasing setting. See the thread for details.
I hope this helps,
I ran it on the integrated graphics card and it runs fine. I don't know why it didn't work before because this was the default setting, but it is fixed.
