Hi just installed solidworks electrical standard 2018. It initially asks to perform an update but get an error message at the end.
How do I fix this? Every time I open the program it asks to do the update
Ken, I believe you are seeing this issue because of user permissions. The Update Data Folder is stored in the application Data folder. Which by default is stored in a system protected Program Data Folder, and can only be delete by a user with Full admin rights. You should be able to manually delete the update folder form the Application Data folder after you have successfully processed the update. The default location is C:\ProgramData\SOLIDWORKS Electrical.
As the message says you can also right mouse click on the SOLIDWORKS Electrical icon and run as administrator and let it run the update and it should remove the folder.

Run SOLIDWORKS Electrical 'one time' as admin (right click on the icon and select run as administrator).
This will do the update and set the flag so it does not keep asking.
