How do I avoid SolidWorks 2019 Student unresponsive on major function executions?

DETAILS OF THE COMMAND THAT I'M TRYING TO EXECUTE:

This involves 2 (two) Linear Patterns, as detailed below...

-First I create a horizontal pattern involving 100 iterations of a small, simple feature (hole).

-Problems arise when I try to create a second Linear Pattern, this one being 200 iterations vertically of the above horizontal pattern.

 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I EXECUTE:

-SolidWorks becomes immediately unresponsive, and its icon on my task bar gets an hourglass next to it.

-No changes for hours & hours, aside from some slight variations in the memory usage of the SolidWorks task (as reported by Task Manager on my Windows OS).

-The rest of my computer functions fine, as though there's no issue at all.

 

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, so thanks in advance!
