    There was a problem sending the command to the program.

      Everytime I open a part, assembly, drawing, or anything related to Solidworks from Windows Explorer rather than from within the program, an error message pops up saying: There was a problem sending the command to the program.

      After I hit OK, the part or assembly loads and everything seems just fine. I'm not okay with it "seeming" fine though. Things have been crashing more recently and this pop-up came along with Solidworks 2012.

       

      My question is, has anyone had a similar issue and do you have a solution? Of course I can just open everything from within Solidworks (but that's one extra step and inconvenient and why pay $8000 for a product with flaws in which you can't obtain support?). I can also just ignore it, but I'm hoping someone may have an answer.

       

      Thanks.
