I am having trouble when using the configuration publisher. When inserting a part (see example below), excel opens and creates the configuration successfully. The problem is that excel does not close on its own. If I close excel manually, solidworks appears to be frozen and I have to close it in the task manager.
We've had a similar issue with design tables with two users. SolidWorks recommendation was to completely un-install and re-install SW. We have not done this yet due to workload and other users can open and modify design tables without issues for them.
