Does anyone know if running both Solidworks 2016 & 2017 on the same computer causes either version to run terribly slow?
I would not necessarily expect that the RAM is the direct cause of the slowness (unless you are utilizing more than 6 GB on the machine in which case, you ran out). It is probably another hardware components. What are these things on your machine here:
I guess your problem lies in your GPU and i suspect it's a gaming card so i suggest to update your GPU Driver to the latest, you can download at Nvidia site
Hello Steve Huycke,
are you running both versions parallel? is it really required? you can check performance with windows task manager..
If both versions not required, you just kill one version process which is not using.
