    Solidworks Crashes When Sketching

    Steve Campbell

      Hello.  I am a university student and have just recently downloaded Solidworks 2017.  When I begin to sketch, Solidworks crashes.  When Solidworks RX comes up, I select to bypass settings/options.  With the settings/options bypassed, Solidworks runs fine.  I have also tried the openGL as well.  Solidworks works, but it is very slow.  My computer is a Microsoft Surface Book with i5 processor and 8GB of RAM.  Solidworks 2016 ran fine on this computer, but 2017 will not.  With the settings and options bypass, I'm not sure what the problem is.

       

      Any suggestions?
