Re-opening FEA study causes SW "error - needs to restart"

SW Premium 2009


SW seems to be working and FEA study seems to be working until I save and close the document.  On attempting to re-open the document SW reports "error - needs to restart".  Endlessly.


My workaround is to model the part then save as a copy and do the study on the copy and print the results before closing.  Then I can open the original part and do another study on it.


As I am new to using FEA, this condition could have been present when I bought the product.  I don't change hardware or software.


Simultaneously SW RX reports "error - needs to restart" when I attempt to run it, but when I ignore the message and request Windows cleanups that works.  Looks like it can't connect to SW.  It used to work.


I have seen Windows messages about low virtual memory but I dismissed them as I have 8GB of real memory.


Any suggestions?
