I have a frustrating situation.  I have two computers, both pretty good.  One is a Dell M4400, 3 GHz Core 2 Duo, 8 Gb of RAM, Quadro FX 1700, the other is an HP HDX18T, dual centrino 2's, 4 Gb RAM, and an nVidia GeForce GT 130M.


With SW 2009 4.1, both machines are fast.  But... when I try to mesh in Cosmos I get this file sharing violation.


I upgrade both to 2009 5.1 removing 4.1.  Both are stupid slow but the file sharing issue is gone.  I mean SW will be fast as usual then I'll open a sketch, the CPU drops to near zero and SW sits for like 5 solid minutes doing nothing.  If I run any other programs, well they run fine which figures since while this is  happening the CPU is not being used by SolidWorks and both machins have loads of RAM left.


I don't know what to do, any ideas?
