We upgraded a sytem to Solidworks 2012 to test it out and make sure we do not have any issues. This system runs a configurator and is our TEST environment. With 2012, the configurations take almost 3 times as long to run as they do in 2011. I did a side by side comparison running a 2011 system against the 2012 system. The 2011 system took 12 minutes to run, the 2012 took 32 minutes.
Has anyone else using a configurator experienced this issue?
