I don't seem to have this issue with any other version of Solidworks, but with SW2009 and SW2010, it would seem that Solidworks can't find the 3Dx Ware driver for my Space Pilot.
I have an older Space Pilot (Release Version: 3.6.4, Driver Version 6.6.1, Frimware Version 4.05). If I re-start the driver manually, everything seems to work fine. My question is this, does the most recent firmware upgrade solve this issue? I no longer have Admin access to my workstation, and before I "bother" IT, I want to be sure the latest drivers cover the most recent SW versions.
I know it sounds trivial, but IT can be difficult.
