Ok I am currently a student and am having issues with solidworks on my home computer. Having the ability to use solidoworks at home to do homework is essential. I have taken numerous other programs through my school and have had no issues what so ever with those software programs some of these include....
Wild fire 5
Creo 2 + 3
Google Sketch up
Just to name a few.
Heres the problem, I installed solidworks, the program opens fine but once you try to start a part, or open an existing part the program hangs and will eventually if clicked on "program not responding" and will have to be closed. always says "editing part" on the bottom of the screen.
Things I have tried to correct issue-
unistalling and reinstalling software
check and recheck current licenses
updating drivers for operating system and video cards "which are all current"
For the obivous-----My computer is probably not the issue
Dell XPS 8500
i7 3.6 processor
3 tara hard
3G nvidia gt 640 video card
I had this computer built by dell specifically for CAD.........same computer but better than my school currently uses.
Runs all other programs with no isssues whatsoever!!!
Run Graphically intense games and video and picture editing software with no issues............
So whats the deal?
Any help would be appreciated!!!!
