SolidWorks crashing on create route

Hello all, I am new to the forums.


After recently completing the SolidWorks Routing: Piping & Tubing training, I have since tried to implement some of the things learned to create some pipe routes/drawings for manufacture. I have created a routing template, various tubes & fittings as well as our own design library.


When starting a route, by dragging a bulkhead fitting into a hole in a plate, proceeding with selecting my preferred tube etc from the dialogue box and then drawing a couple of lines in the sketcher. Upon exiting the sketcher via the tick, SolidWorks thinks about it for a few seconds, and then crashes out. I have tried this with two different bulkheads, two different tubes, & on two different computers and this happens ever time.


Is anyone aware of any issue that could be causing this? My issue is currently with SolidWorks, I just wondered if it was a quick fix that would let me carry on with my work.
