If you are running VIsta, see https://forum.solidworks.com/thread/24558?start=15&tstart=0
If not VIsta, try adding the /USERVA=2900 switch after the /3GB switch.
Thanks for the advice. We use XP 32bit. How does adding the /USERVA=2900 switch fix the problem? It worked fine before the updrade.
The /USERVA option may have no effect in this case, but it is a very simple, quick and free 'fix' to try.
The /USERVA option is a modifier for the /3GB switch. It actually reduces the 3GB (3072MB) to the numeric value used. The numeric value can be anything from 0 to 3072, but is usually set between 2500 and 3030. Some systems need just a little bit more than the 1GB for system resources that the /3GB switch creates. I really don't know if having Office 2007 would affect the 'system resource' usage.
