Just happened today. I tried to pack-n-go a part and the SW did not response at all
Any idea what is wrong here
You might have run into the situation where you have more than one monitor and it's coming up on the "other" one.
The problem may be that the Pack and Go dialog does come up, but it is not visible to the user. When the dialog is up, no clicks respond in SolidWorks if Pack and Go was launched from the SolidWorks File menu. Windows Explorer is similarly locked out while the dialog is up. If the dialog is not visible to the user, it could appear to be a hang/freeze.
One known cause of this problem is a failure to reset the dialog if it was last positioned on a monitor that is no longer active. For example, move the Pack and Go dialog to monitor 2 and then disable monitor 2. This will reproduce the behavior. SPR 395583 has been reported to development to properly reset the dialog back to monitor 1. Please refer to the SolidWorks Knowledge Base to find the latest status of this SPR. Please contact your reseller in order to be added to the notification list so that you are informed when the issue is resolved.
To manually reset the position of this dialog, go into the Windows registry.Start->Run->regedit.Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SolidWorks\SolidWorks 2009\PDMWorks Delete "CopyDesignDialog"Use caution while working in the registry as changes to the registry can affect all programs on the computer including the operating system.
Or you may have to register the proper dll file per this discussion.
Can you please let us know your Swx version...and sp.
Does it happen on all files? Did you try a restart? Did you tried using P&G from window explorer?
Try the Recursive R solution; If the first solution doesn't work, move onto the next level.
Reboot the computer

You left out Replace Computer (maybe step 5 or 6)
You're a funny guy sometimes, Kelvin - I was almost ready to get another computer following your last step
Thanks for the big tips
I just seconds ago did a pack and go and it worked fine. Even added a prefix.
I am running 2010 SP 4.0
SW2010 sp4 on Win7 64
I'm away from my workstation now so I can't try any suggest from you guys
Anyway, it just happened last night and I couldn't run pack-n-go both from SW and window explorer
Will try again tonight
You might be right - I've been run SW on dual monitors and recently loaned one to my son
You're absolutely right, Wayne
Just reset the monitor setup and the pack-n-go pop up
