    Corrupt files and Jibberish File folders

      Has anyone experienced this? Virus? Reinstall of SW? Reinstall of OS? Thoughts, jabs and wise cracks welcome!

          Hmm, I'd say you are being used to channel intergalactic communications. Expect a visit shortly from the little green men. Beam me up Scotty.


          Otherwise I'm not sure.

            Did you work through this? I had mine working great then I got this below which I posted on another SW forum.


            Hello. I installed a student version of Soldiworks2010-2011 and it worked great for a month or so. I started another study of Excel and put SolidWorks on the back burner for a few months.

            I opened Solidworks again recently so I wouldn’t get rusty and a few boxes come up.  One says, “Couldn’t initialize Feature works application” and the other says, “Could not initialize Solidworks utilities.

            I also have noticed that my links in the far right “Solidworks Recourses” no longer work I.E. the tutorials link. Should I uninstall and reinstall it or will SolidWorks allow me to do that since it’s a student version?
