I have the following issue with SolidWorks 2009
From time to time (sometimes 3 times/week or 3 times/day) SolidWorks is freezing my system and takes me 15-25 minutes to save my work and restart the computer. It happens when I either switch between open documents, want to save, find reference, edit a feature…, so it is random and I can’t pin point the exact problem that causes this to happen.
If I look in Task Manager in Windows -> Processes tab -> Memory usage, is showing that SW dumps all the memory used and then it takes it back. To better explain, when I encounter the problem, Memory Usage for SW is 10,000K and going up. If I wait long enough (to rich over 650,000K) my system might become to life again.
I got in touch with my customer support, I even took a video of the phenomenon but they came back and told me that I have a clean system and they can’t see any problem.
I tried without success:
- upgrade firmware, software and drivers
- upgrade framework
- working on local drive
- fresh install of SW by removing all the reg keys
This is getting very frustrating and I was wondering if anyone else is experiencing something like this or if anyone can give me a solution to this problem (besides get rid of SW).
