Hi, i'm a Motorsport Engineering Student and I've just purchased and installed the student edition of SW 2012 and I'm having a few issues.

I tried to use Flow simulation on a vehicle model. This was set up using the simulation with the wizard and then after pressing run a dialog box appears 'Solidworks has stopped working'.

I initially thought there was a problem with the model, so I quickly made a very simple model and the same thing occurs.


I cannot find any similar issues in the search of this forum.


The computer is a new build:

Windows 7 pro 64-bit


Intel i7 3770k 3.5ghz

8GB Ram

AMD Firepro V3900 graphics


Please can you help me solve this as I need the software for my final year project.
