difference between safe mode 2 and factory settings

Question asked by Tobias Westphal on Jul 27, 2018

I'm trying to use Solidworks 2017 (2016 had the same problem) on a Win10 machine.

As soon as I open a sketch SW crashes if not set to Software-OpenGL mode (which is unusably slow...)

This Problem does not occur when starting SW in safe mode 2.

I already tried uninstalling a former installation including the registry information removal option of the uninstall process. Also I tried resetting all settings under options. In my understanding the settings should be the same as in safe mode 2.


How is safe mode 2 different from a freshly installed Version?
