            Igor, why don't you run the performance benchmark and tell us what metrics are slower than they were with SP3?

                Hi John,

                I have installed the 2012 SP 5.0 at same time and it is work perfect, like the 2013 SP 3.0. I have no idea about performance benchmark run and I do not have the admin rights. I working at Edmonton AB and our server with IT support located in Germany.

                They installed SP 4.0 night before. I will ask them reinstall SW SP 3.0 tonight (I have original DVD) and I will look. If You can explaine me what I can do to run performance benchmark, how it is started and do I need the Admin right.

                    No you don't need admin rights to run the performance benchmark. 

                    Reboot your machine, launch solidWorks and you can run the performance benchmark test from the task pane
