is solidworks 2017 sp5 the best of all the 2017 sp's?
Have not downloaded it yet nor I have I looked at fixed SPRs
Well I downloaded and installed today. SW will not start I get an error:
I still have 41 GB of free disk space, so should still open and run.
When I click OK I get this:
Click OK again and I get...
Not sure what is going on. I would stick with SP 4
Were you able to roll SW back to SP4.1?
I have installed it one week ago. Works fine including my macros library.
Uninstall SW, clean up registers, create Administrative Image and reinstall it again from Administrative Image.
If you did the minimal download it may not have gotten all the updated pre-requisites.
The best way is to do a full download (all files) and save it to disk.
Then use that to do a full install - not just a repair.
That should check your files and update any (like the Microsoft VB and .net) pre-requisites it needs to.
I downloaded and ran SWX2017 SP5.0 today with no problems.
Since last Wed. No real problems. But have had Solidworks stop working twice. Was repairing old files. Not sure if it was the file or the new program SP5. Went to 5 cause one of the other guys was Using SP4.0 and wanted to see if I could get 5 to help him. Went from Sp3 to 5 on my machine. No problems on download.
I'm a bit sceptical about bothering about 2017 sp5. SP4.1 is relatively stable for me and there doesn't seem to be much on the updates that will ever get my time back installing it. Worth users considering if you aren't getting a problem that is solved in the latest sp5.
