I have been attempting to download Solidworks onto my laptop for the past few days now but every time I begin the download it the installation manager reports:
download error. If the problem persists, a proxy server might be preventing automatic downloads.
I also get an error 403 when I try the manual download option too. On top of that I am also trying to download the SOLIDWORKS API SDK from the manual download packages page but I get the error
An error occurred while processing your request.
I have seen similar forum posts on these same issues however they are never properly answered and filled with unhelpful comments
