I'm having trouble downloading solidworks onto my computer as I keep on having this error message which I have attached. How do I download these 'additional files'?
Make sure that your download options are not set to install only.
It gives me 4 options;
1. Install on this computer
2. Create an administrative image to deploy multiple computers
3, Install server components
4. Download and share all files. Create individual installs or administrative images on multiple machines with a single download.
Which one should I choose?
That message means that you are trying to install something that wasn't originally downloaded when the created the installer location.
Someone needs to launch the setup file that they originally downloaded from the customer portal and select the option to download everything.
I am a student; is this something my teacher has to do, or can I do it? Many thanks.
You should be able to select the first option to install on this computer. Then, it will ask you what parts of the software you want to install. It will then download those things and install them.
