I get an "Internal Error: CoCreate Instance Failed" message when I try to download SW2018 SP1. I am wondering what the issue is. I am not coming up with much in the way of what the error means...
My next step would be to go to SolidWorks.com and download it directly. There must be something messed up in your updater.
As far as I know CoCreate is an older version of the PTC Creo Direct software. That error makes me think your machine is somehow trying to use Creo Direct to open the file. Do you have that installed and somehow have a file extension linked to it?
What are the steps you are using to download SW2018?
I go to the Start Menu > Solidworks Installation Manager > Check for Updates. The downloader launches and it checks for updates and find SP1. I click Next. Then the error pops up.
Ok, I registered my serial number with my account in the customer portal on solidworks.com. Is there a wait time until when I can download the file? I still don't have access to the downloads area.
Ok it's downloaded and installing now.
Great, glad that worked.
Thanks for your help!
