I had to redo my installation of sw2012 due to a reformat and subsequent reinstall of windows 7 X64. I've updated the install to SP5.0. When I boot up SW, I get a message of:
"Solidworks database is missing. complete functionality will not be available"
But, solidworks fires up without incident. When I try to use the hole wizard for taps, countersinks, etc, I get an error of:
"Could not find the standards database c:\solidworks data (2)\lang\english\swbrowswer.mdb"
Can anyone help with with this error? this is a complete refresh install (not an update). I've never had this error before when re-installing SW. Any help is greately appreciated.
<ETA> I found it. I don't know why the option menu for the toolbox directory was pointing to a directory that didn't exist. It wouldn't let me change the directory that it was referencing, so i renamed the c:\solidworks data\... to solidworks data (2) and SW seemed to like that.
