Hello, I'm Adrian.
The issues I am having started with a 2015 version of Solidworks I had from a previous course, now we have been given an updated version (2016-2017) through North Metro Tafe. During the uninstall and installation process there were issues that meant files were left on my computer that cannot be removed due to aninability to "locate them". Even though I can see the files and they take up space, I cannot uninstall, delete or move them. (even using cleaning tools). Also the files are old and will not allow or work with the new version.
In an effort to fix them I installed a Virtual Machine with the sole purpose of running the new version and received this error.
