Solidworks 2017-2018 Student Edition Crashing on Splash Screen

Question asked by Justin Gerber on Jul 3, 2018

Having an issue with 2017-2018 Solidworks student version crashing on the splash screen.

What's also noteably odd is that the same splash screen picture is appearing each time instead of the normal cycling through the various images.

It crashes on the verifying license section of the splash screen. It seems that a recent Windows 10 updated and caused the issue.


I've tried:

Uninstalling & reinstalling

Running the Solidworks repair

Uninstalling, clearing the registry and then reinstalling


The same problem persists, other Solidworks software such as Electrical or Visualize launch perfectly.

Has anyone come across something similar or has an ideas that I haven't tried yet.
