I would not want to reinstall Windows! Who knows what this is?
Nothing much. I had it 3 times yesterday, just restart and carry on...
model contains 2000-3000 elements! Load Time 20-40 minutes! Can throw out from the program each hour!!!!
Can you post your system specs. Also, some more details on the model, is it an assembly? Can you show a screen shot of your assemblyXpert box?
this can happen also when I working with a small different assemblys!!!! I also reinstalled Solidworks!!!! It did not help!!! Thank you in advance!!!!
What is assembly eXpert?
This happens to me as well a couple times a day. But I get why you can't afford to
have this happen. Do you have your settings for large assemblies set properly in tools>options>system options
under assemblies? Have the components setting up high enough? You might want to consider loading
this lightweight as well. Also how much memory are you running? Better be at least 12 GB.
Yes! I used lightweight option and also not load hidden components! I have x32bit and only 3.25GB! Thank you for your attention!!!
You really need more memory. You are gorssly choking the system with what you have.
Also increase the amount of components like I said in my last posting.
I would also think about configs to show some of the components suppressed.
My colleague has no problems with the same requirements of the system! Only the processing of information for a long time!!!
Can other programs interfere with work of Solidworks?
Yes, anti virus ones at times.
I don;'t know what to tell you about your collegues. I just know what I have run
in similar situations without having any issues. All I can do is pass the info on.
What you do with it is your business.
Thank you Scott!!! I'll check my pc for viruses! But I doubt that will help!
You're welcome and you can do that, but I was talking about the anti viral software that
runs in the background.
Can any of these programs cause this error?
I don't see anything glaring out at me. Just look in the lower right corner
to see what if any anti-virus programs are running. But I still goes back to what we
talked about earlier.
Since your load time is so high, I am guessing that you are loading the files from a server. If so, you might want to bring the files on to your local disk and work with them locally until time to check them back in. It should speed up your load time substantially, and may actually help with the crashes as well.
Someone who seemed quite knowledgeable suggested that users not use the "Restart SolidWorks" button, as the conditions that caused the crash are still likely to be present. It should help to log off and back on, as this clears memory usage. If that doesn't seem to work, then restart your system before running SW again.
Are you running with the 3 GB switch? If not, you should try it, starting with USERVA of 2900. In the long run, you should be moving to 64 bit and more RAM, as Scott suggested.
Holy Smokes! The internet just ran out of exclamation points because Anton used them all up! Oops, I guess there was one left.
LOL, I have a Facebook friend who does the same thing. I kid her all the time that her "!" key will quit working on her soon.
What are you talking about?
