I am trying to run a simple static analysis in Solidworks 2018. However, no matter what size, shape, and material I use, I receive an error code stating "Number of equations is equal to zero". Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
From the knowledge base:
S-049735: The errors "Maximum number of nodes cannot be zero" and/or "Number of equations is equal to zero" appear when running any study on a given machine. What could be causing this?The most probable cause is anti-virus or other security software on the computer. Certain security programs might detect either the Simulation solver process (star.exe for static) or any number of temporary files used by the solvers as potential threats. Such
S-069379: Why do I receive the error "Number of equations is equal to zero" in a specific study?A. SYMPTOM In a specific study, the error message "Number of equations is equal to zero" appears soon after clicking the ‘Run’ button. B. CAUSE The solver determined that there are no unknowns in your study, and therefore there is nothing to calculate. This
