Our IT department has us shutting down every night and booting up fresh each morning. Why then does Solidworks Rx diagnostic show last reboot was 15 days 7 hours ago, AND is says every time that a reboot is pending.
Frederick is correct! This is due to the fast startup option. In other words, a shutdown does not fully shutdown so it can improve start times. Go under your Task Manager, and then the performance tab. The "Up Time" is what the application is talking about. This will get reset only when you do a RESTART if you don't have the fast startup option disabled. Or, just do a restart more often.
Fast startup option (may be disabled by your company policy)
It's nice how windows sneaks these subtle differences in. I'm not what the overall affect on SOLIDWORKS might be as the ram is still purged, but I'll find out.
I have gotten that message when trying to upgrade service packs. So far I've just ignored it. I'll be running SolidWorks later today, I'll run Rd and see what I get.
Last night I did a shutdown, then started back up. Same Rx message on diagnostic. I then did a restart. Rx message changed to last reboot "0" days. I just logged off when I bugged out and this morning Rx message is last reboot was 15 hours ago. Which is correct. It must be something with my workstation. Because on a shutdown start up everything loads slow (items in system tray).
But on a restart everything starts up in half the time. There must be some buffer or cache that isn't getting cleaned out properly on a shutdown-start up that is handled better/differently on a restart. So this looks like it most likely isn't a Solidworks issue but a Win10 issue.
You're not alone. My reboot is 13 days ago which I shutdown on last Friday.
Technically Rx is correct, its a shutdown and boot, not a reboot
I think Windows 10 has a fast startup option.
I discovered this recently with Windows 10. I had a habit of using task manager to tell me how long I'd worked that day, but I'd always been on windows 7. When I got a new W10 PC I tried to do this and it said my uptime was 30 hours, even though I'd shut down the previous evening and turned it on again that morning. This lead me to "fast startup". Disabled it and all is peachy now.
Every time I run Rx it tells me my last reboot was 0 days ago. I shutdown my computer every night and start it up every morning as soon as I get here and no matter when I run Rx it gives me the same time frame. I don't even pay attention to it anymore.
I didn't either until I noticed that shutdown did not register as a "reboot". I believe this is a Win10 only occurrence to increase startup. If you are on another OS and shutdown and start, it would show as 0 days. Our VAR was aware of the setting, but it does not seem to present an issue to SOLIDWORKS, but could affect some other applications.
I'm running on Windows7 and for kicks I ran the Rx a few minutes ago and it says that last reboot was 1 hour ago, but I've never run Rx twice in one day before.
