      When opening a .SLDDRW it prompts me to browse for the
      .SLDPRT. I find the correct .SLDPRT and then Solidworks give me an error
      message stating the following:

      This SLDRW and SLDPRT are both files that were
      provided from the customer. I have no problem opening the SLDPRT in Solidworks
      and the SLDRW opens in eDrawings with no errors. I have tried to open this file
      while running SP2 and SP3. No luck with either service packs.
